Get all your ingredients out in advance. Start by mixing the eggs, almond butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl.

Then add the oats, baking soda, and salt. You can use a hand mixer or wooden spoon. This is a very thick mixture.

Add your mini M & M’s and mini chocolate chips and cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. This gives all the ingredients time to stick together. The main reason why you should refrigerate your dough is to prevent spreading and your cookies being too thin.
