  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugars using an electric mixer. Mix in the eggs, vanilla and coffee flavored liqueur.
  3. Measure the oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until blended, then stir in the candy pieces. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to turn golden.

These were really good. Made one batch with candy-coated pieces which were ok but made the second batch using 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 3/4 cups white chocolate chips and OH MY GOD - fabulous! Thanks so much for the recipe.

This was not at all what I was expecting. I was looking for a sugar cookie with M&M's and what I got was a dry puffy oatmeal cookie with M&M's. They were not gross, but I wouldn't make them again. Maybe I am being overly critical because I was excited about having a different kind.

These cookies were GREAT! They do, however, come out pretty flat and stuck to the cookie sheet... remove them quickly. I also suggest adding a few M&M's on the top of the cookies.

Delicious cookies! I have made them for family and friends, and everyone loves them.

Wow! I used 2 c chocolate chips instead of the candy coated chocolate pieces. I also used organic sugars. These cookies taste incredible; a cookie dough flavor that is totally addictive. I freeze them and then defrost as needed; the amazing flavor seems to improve with freezing.

I have given this recipe out to so many people! Everytime I bring them to a function, I know to bring the recipe with too...they're just that good!

These are great! I decreased the amount of butter in half, but kept everything the same. Start checking the cookies around 7 min, once they get light golden brown on the bottom pull 'em!

The product was excellent! I used mini M & Ms, included the coffee liqueur...and I have to say that the taste is superb. No need to spray the pans with non-stick, as some suggested. They slid right off the pan! I also used a cookie scoop to form the cookies. The dough seemed too moist for rolling in balls by hand. This is a keeper.
