Day 5 of my 12 days of cookies: Peanut Butter Oatmeal M&M Cookies. Pretty much, if you couldn’t make up your mind with what kind of cookie you should make, you end up with this. These cookies have a little bit of every classic cookie: oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate.
I wouldn’t consider this an “oatmeal” cookie since there’s so little of it in the dough. Heck, you can’t even see it in these pictures! The strongest flavor here is the peanut butter. They don’t bake into perfectly shaped cookies, but I like how jagged they are. It shows that they’re truly homemade with love.
I used mini M&M’s, but they’re getting harder and harder to find now and days. I used to be able to find bags of them at my local Target, but it seems as if they’ve gotten rid of their stash and no longer carry mini M&M’s. What a bummer! All of the other M&M flavors have replaced the minis. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that they’ll return to the shelves after the holidays.
Recipe is slightly adapted from Delectably Mine.
