  • Servings: 2 ½ dozen
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 c (1 ½ sticks) butter, slightly softened
  • 1 c brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ c old-fashioned oats
  • 1 ¾ c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c M&M’s
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter.
  4. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla to the sugar mixture, and mix well until creamy.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture until just mixed.
  6. Add the oats and mix together.  Don’t overmix.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips and M&M’s with a large spoon until incorporated.
  8. Place balls of dough, around 2 Tbsp. each, on the parchment sheet.  Flatten slightly with a spatula.
  9. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes (mine took 10 minutes using a 2 Tbsp. scoop).  Make sure not to overbake.  The cookies will not be brown and will continue to cook as they cool on the pan.
  10. If you want, for a more colorful look, press 5 M&M’s into top of each cookie immediately after you take them out of the oven.  If you do it before you bake them, the M&M’s crack.
  11. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Let come to room temperature before serving.  They freeze well.
