I use this recipe all the time. We farm & have a large active family. I have been asked to bring this recipe, almost every time we send care packages for the basketball or volleyball varsity buses. Good balance of protein/complex carbs/quick energy. You do not need to add or change a thing to it. I use a large scoop and put about 6 cookies on a 12X17 cookie sheet. I don't press them out, but leave them to bake in the scooped shape, and bake for no more than 12 minutes,. I start checking them at 11 minutes. They will look slightly underbaked in the center. When I remove the cookies from the oven, I allow them to set up on the hot cookie sheet for a few minutes, then I transfer to a cooling rack or cold, flat surface when they start to hold together. As with all homemade treats lacking preservatives, package them in an air-tight container immediately when cool. I believe the corn syrup keeps them chewy. The only hard cookies I've had are those last pans I've forgotten to check and overbaked! If you are really particular about wanting cute cookies, try adding the M&M's individually on each cookie after you've scooped the cookies, making faces, etc..however, that's an easier job for the little kids! We've used team colors M&M's. Good Luck!
