MONSTER Cookies!

I found a the following "Monster Cookie" recipe at a blog titled "Dinners for a Year." Totally "mom" cookies, which seemed appropriate since nearly half of my guinea pigs were three little girls under the age of 8.

The cookies were moist and chewy, and reminded me of trail mix in cookie form, since ingredients include peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip cookies. I think this makes them healthy, so I'm loading up. And as with anything I bake, I'm sure you could make them even more healthy, but I rarely strive for that. So please enjoy my somewhat healthy monster cookies, or take a stab at modifications per your own tastes.

3 eggs
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup margarine
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 10 ounce bag M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine all ingredients, except the oats and M&Ms, in the order listed. Mix until well combined. Stir in the oats and M&Ms being careful not to crack the M&Ms shells. Drop by golf ball size pieces onto prepared baking sheets - about 6 to a sheet. Press down slightly. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes - they should look a little under done. Let cool for a minute or two on the sheet and then remove to parchment paper on the counter.

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?
