Perfect Delicious Chewy M&M Peanut Butter Cookies

There are so many cookies out there! There are chocolate, peanut butter, nut, sprinkles, sugar, so many different types. These cookies are the combination of two of my son’s favorite types of cookies. He LOVES M&M cookies and peanut butter cookies.

If you are looking for a nut-free alternative for kids with nut allergies try making these with sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter or make a batch or each!
