These chewy Peanut Butter M&M Cookies are bursting with peanut butter flavor and peanut butter M&M’s throughout!
Imagine a combination of a classic Peanut Butter Cookie, with an M&M Cookie. Then, imagine the M&M’s are also filled with peanut butter. That’s exactly what this cookie recipe is! It’s DIVINE!
Peanut Butter Overload
I was recently at the store and picked up some Peanut Butter M&Ms for the hubby (they’re his FAV!). I realized I had never used them in a dessert before and had never tried making cookies with them.
What resulted was a batch of cookies that had a peanut butter base, crushed PB M&M’s throughout, and PB M&M’s on top. In other words… Peanut butter overload! But in the best way, of course.
The whole family loved these cookies so much. But, I mean, you can’t go wrong with a peanut butter + chocolate combo (extra emphasis on peanut butter). 😉
How to Make Them
DOUGH. Cream butter, oil, peanut butter and sugars in mixer. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
M&M’S. Add crushed M&ms and mix until well combined. Place on greased cookie sheet and add 3-5 M&Ms to each cookie.
BAKE. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes. ENJOY!
Baking tip: Overbaking can cause these cookies to dry out and lose their chewy texture. Take them out of the oven when the edges of the cookies have browned, but not the tops.
I modified one of our Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipes and added the M&Ms and a little peanut butter. What I love about that recipe is how easily it can be changed up based on the holidays and all the different M&Ms that come out with each holiday. Can’t wait to try other versions of this cookie with:
- Butterfinger Baking Bits
- Caramel M&Ms
- Peanut Butter Chips
- Milk Chocolate Chips
I think no matter what “addition” you make, the cookie always results in a chewy treat that the whole family will enjoy.
Storage: Keep them in an airtight container for 5-7 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
Freezing dough balls: Drop the dough balls onto a baking sheet and place it in the freezer. Once they are solid transfer them to a freezer Ziploc. They can be stored for up to 3 months.

Everyone’s favorite cookie!! I love that these have crushed m&m’s, along with whole ones!
Peanut butter M&Ms are my favorite kind of M&Ms. These cookies were absolutely amazing!
Hi, these look wonderful, but I need to make them with gluten-free flour (allergy problem). Has anyone tried this? I bought a baking flour that’s a mix of rice, potato, coconut & almond flours, and on the bag it claims to be like all-purpose flour. Can you make yummy cookies like these with fake flour? Thanks!
I haven’t tried this recipe with gluten-free flour. If the gluten free “all-purpose” flour you use doesn’t work out you could try Bob’s 1 to 1 flour as well. Hope this helps! 🙂
Peanut butter and m&m’s. Cant get enough these sweet little things!!
