I'm-sick-of-studying-and-it's-only-november bars

Sometimes only crumble and a cookie will solve life's problems. Often when I am craving something, I'll just hone in on what exactly I'm craving (in this case, crumble and bar cookies), survey what is in the kitchen cabinets (M&Ms), and bake something from that. VOILA! M&M crumble bars! Let their buttery goodness take you away....at least for a moment.

I'm-Sick-Of-Studying-And-It's-Only-November Crumble Bars

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

M&Ms....as many as you want.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In bowl, prepare crumble: mix together butter, oatmeal, flour, brown, and white sugars. Set aside.

Prepare cookies: mix together dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together butter, brown, and white sugars until combined. Mix in egg and vanilla. Gradually add dry mixture to wet mixture, and mix until combined.

Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter into bottom of pan and smooth it out. Crumble crumble mixture evenly over the top. Top with M&Ms.

Bake in preheated oven for 20-ish minutes until brown around the edges. Devour.
