Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies
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. 🙂

Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies are nice and plump. They are soooo delicious.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. While I used pecan chips because that’s what I had on hand, coarsely chopped pecans will work too.
Soften butter. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add oatmeal, coconut, pecans and Peanut Butter flavored M&Ms.
Stir with a heavy spoon to combine.
Scoop dough with a one-quarter cup scoop. Press dough firmly into scoop.
Place dough on greased cookie sheets several inches apart.
Bake at 350 about 17-22 minutes or until done. (My cookies took about 25 minutes while rotating racks every 8 minutes).
Peanut Butter M&M Oatmeal Cookies are great snacks to take for soccer practice, baseball games or parties.
These cookies got rave reviews when I sent them out to my husband’s workplace.
