Ingredients:

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2/3 cup packed brown sugar* (can also reduce to 1/2 cup with good results!)

2 tablespoon melted butter or ghee (melted coconut oil will also work)

Optional: ½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup dark chocolate chips

2 eggs

¼ cup M&M's, plus ¼ cup more for topping cookies

1 cup gluten free old fashioned rolled oats

1 cup natural creamy or chunky peanut butter (only peanuts + salt)

¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts

¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (not the big flakes)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Equipment:

baking paper

baking sheet

oven

bowl

wire rack

Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix together the wet ingredients until smooth: peanut butter, melted butter/ghee, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Next stir in the oats, baking soda and cinnamon. Finally add in all of your mix-ins: M&Ms, dark chocolate chips, nuts and shredded coconut. Use a large cookie scoop to scoop rounded balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between them to spread. Add a few M&Ms on top of each dough ball. If you like fat cookies, do not flatten the dough. If you like thinner cookies, use your hands to gently flatten the tops of the dough before baking. Bake for 9-11 minutes until edges are barely golden brown. Allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. This is an important step. Enjoy!
