Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies

March 21, 2019Teresa

What a fabulous cookie! Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies. Whoa! Yes, yes, yes. 🙂 These amazing Oatmeal Cookies include coconut, finely diced pecans and Peanut Butter flavor M&Ms. They are absolutely awesome and a step-up from regular Oatmeal Cookies. In fact, they are so good you may want to put them on your regular baking list.

I started with my delicious Coconut Date Cookies recipe, but changed things up a bit. Instead of using dates, I used Peanut Butter M&Ms. The flavor, texture and taste were all fantastic. These cookies are terrific snacks for soccer practice or ball games, potlucks, tailgating or office parties.

I sent these out to John’s office along with several trays of other cookies back in January. I got rave reviews from these spectacular cookies. If you enjoy a little bit of peanut butter, chocolate, coconut, oatmeal and pecans, this cookie is for you! It simply bursts with flavor. I loved the crunchy texture. You just can’t go wrong with Oatmeal Cookies of some kind.

It’s certainly a favorite way to make Oatmeal Cookies. My mom used to make her Oatmeal Cookies with coconut and oatmeal. Those were some of my favorite cookies growing up. These cookies, with the addition of the Peanut Butter M&Ms and pecans bump up the flavor tremendously. They also increase the deliciousness of regular Oatmeal Cookies. Yes, they are so, so satisfying if you want a sweet treat in your house.

I have one recommendation for making these cookies. I used a one-quarter cup scoop. You have to press the ingredients into the scoop before inverting the dough on cookie sheets. Otherwise, the dough will crumble too much and come apart. That will help the ingredients adhere together better. It also makes for one terrifically shaped cookie. 🙂

Give Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies a try. You and your family will absolutely devour them.

I used these ingredients. While I used pecan chips because that’s what I had on hand, coarsely chopped pecans will work too.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: The secret to making these cookies is to not overbake them. If you overbake they become too crispy. If you bake them just until the liquid texture on top of the cookie is almost baked, the cookies will be chewy and delicious.

NOTE: My cookies took 25 minutes to bake, rotating racks about every 8 minutes. I had three racks baking at one time so it may have taken a little longer than if only baking on two racks.

NOTE: These cookies spread quite a bit while baking. Make sure you space them about three inches apart or they will run into each other while baking.

NOTE: I used pecan chips which are very finely chopped pecans – almost like almond meal. They will absorb into the cookie dough differently than coarsely chopped pecans. If you cannot find pecan chips, you may have to chill the dough on the cookie sheets about 30 minutes before baking. Otherwise, the cookies may run into each other.
