M&M Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
5 cups rolled oats, ground in a blender to a fine powder (alternately, use oat flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 package milk chocolate M&M baking bits
1 package toffee bits
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir in flour, ground oats, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, M&M's, toffee bits, and nuts if desired.

Scoop with a cookie scoop onto an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten each ball slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake in a 375ºF oven for 13 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 80 cookies
