|Gluten Free Flourless Monster Cookie Bars
I love making flourless recipes, because I know not everyone can find, or wants to buy, all the gluten free flours and starches it takes to make a good gluten free dessert. These Gluten Free Flourless Monster Cookie Bars are easy to put together and to bake...and even easier to eat! These bars have a nice chew to them with little bits of crunchy peanuts throughout from the peanut butter...and they certainly aren't lacking in melted chocolate thanks to the chocolate chips in the dough and the M&M's on top! You will love this gluten free treat.

2/3 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups (16 oz. jar) chunky peanut butter
6 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 M&M's candies for topping (I used mega M&M's)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, vanilla and baking soda. Stir in the peanut butter. Add the oats and stir again until well combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Press the dough onto the bottom of a parchment lined large baking sheet, or jelly roll pan. Top with the M&M's and lightly press them into the dough. Bake for 16-17 minutes, until the bars are lightly browned and just past looking wet on top. They will not be firm, but they will set up as they cool.
