  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) high gluten bread flour
  • 1 cup (99 grams) quick oats ( you can substitute old fashioned)
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder
  • 1 cup (213 grams)  brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup (135 grams) peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon (14 grams)  vanilla
  • 3 large eggs, room temp
  • 1 cup M & M’S (use the color and flavor for the holiday/occasion you are celebrating)
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams)  butter, softened
  • 1 cup (170 grams) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (170) semi- sweet chunk chocolate chips

Cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add peanut butter and mix again.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing until just incorporated.
Next, add vanilla and mix again.
In a separate bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, and baking soda.
Whisk to combine the ingredients.
Gently pour the flour mixture into the creamed butter and sugar and mix on low until just combined.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and add chocolate chips and M & M’s.
Gently stir by hand to combine.
If you need your mixer for another recipe, dump the dough into a clean bowl and then seal with seran wrap.  Spray the wrap to keep it come sticking to the dough.
Refrigerate the dough overnight.
Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat your oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Using a large serving spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop out dough onto cookie sheets. These cookies will be large.
Bake the cookies for approximately 8-10 minutes. You want the cookies to be brown on edges and just barely done in the center when you remove them.
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on sheet to set for a few minutes. Then, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For Easter cookies, I used regular M & M’s in pastel colors.
  • For Valentine’s cookies, I used fudge brownie flavor in red, white, and pink.
  • I use high gluten flour in combination with all purpose because this is a hefty cookie. The extra gluten helps the cookie hold its shape after it has been baked.
