“This recipe is an adaptation of several recipes I love. They are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle. Oatmeal, peanutbutter, mini m&m cookies.”
36-48 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Mix flour, oats, baking soda and powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream the butter and peanut-butter. Add sugar, mix well. Beat in each egg separately. Then add vanilla. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients. Set aside 1/2 cup of the M&M's, or chocolate chips; with a large wooden spoon, mix in the remaining M&M's or chocolate chips.
  4. Line a baking sheet with Parchment paper and drop cookies by the tablespoonful about 2 inches apart. Take 3-4 M&M's from the 1/2 cup set aside and press them into the cookie so they will show after baking.
  5. Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges and the centers are NOT completely set but no longer shiny. Let cookies finish cooking on sheet for 2-5 minutes and transfer to a wire wrack to cool.
