  • 4 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup grapeseed oil or any oil you prefer
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 cup chocolate callets or chocolate chips, save 1/4 cup for topping
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup M&M's® Pastel + 1/4 cup for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sift the flour, sea salt, baking soda, and cream of tarter together into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, add the softened butter, and both sugars to the bowl. Beat on high for 2-3 minutes until completely creamed together.
  • Add oil, milk, vanilla and the egg. Beat on medium until combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate callets, walnuts and M&M's®. Using a tablespoon, scoop 2 balls into your hand and roll with our palms to smooth it out. Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Top each cookie with a few more M&M's® and chocolate callets.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until the bottoms are lightly golden brown.
  • Let the cookies cool on tray for 1 minute, then move to wire racks to continue cooling.
