Boyfriend Cookies loaded with ground oats, milk chocolate chunks, M&M’S, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They are chewy, chocolatey cookies and supposedly guaranteed boyfriend bait!
I’ve decided that like peanut butter, cookies are also my life. You might think that a person could get tired of baking cookies day in and day out, but I don’t.
I admit it, I have an addiction, but better cookies than other things right?
Now whether you need a boyfriend or not, these boyfriend cookies are a must make. These may just look like an ordinary cookie, but trust me they’re not.
Chock full of M&M’s, semisweet chocolate chips, chunks of milk chocolate bar and ground oatmeal, these cookie are pretty fabulous.
One of my favorite parts of this cookie is the milk chocolate chunks throughout. Eating them warm and biting into a melty chunk of chocolate is pretty much the best thing ever. Don’t grind your chocolate to a “dust”, just give it a few pulses until you have what looks like chocolate pebbles.
The dough is flat out delicious and it would be a complete shame not to have a bite or two.
Trust me when I tell you these cookies would get you a boyfriend if you didn’t have one.
Between these Boyfriend Cookies and these I Want To Marry You Cookies, I’ve pretty much got the whole dating/marriage scene covered for you.
- Total Time: 22 minutes
- 1 cup butter (room temperature)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups flour*
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 4 ounces milk chocolate (frozen (I used Hershey’s Bars))
- 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup M&M’S
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix together the butter and both sugars for 2 minutes until fluffy on medium speed. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Place the oats in a blender or food processor and grind until fine. Whisk the oats into the flour mixture and then with the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.
- Place the frozen chocolate bars into the blender or food processor and pulse a few times. The chocolate should resemble small pebbles.
- With the mixer still on low add in the ground chocolate, chocolate chips, M&M’S and walnuts (if using) mixing until just combined.
- Using a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes and then transfer to a wore rack to cool completely.
- Store airtight for up to 3 days.
- I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour because I wanted the cookies to be slightly thicker and not spread so much.
- I’m not a fan of nuts in cookies, so I leave the walnuts out.

Hi Jodi! I’m curious about freezing the dough in cookie-sized portions. How long would you bake them if frozen?
Hi Stephanie! I would still set my timer for the normal baking time and then check them at that point. You may or may not have to add an extra minute or two to the baking time. Cookies are small enough that they often take the same amount of time to bake frozen as they do fresh. Good luck!
