I saw this recipe in TOH and changed a few things to suit my own tastes. It is very easy to throw together and has a very satisfying flavor and texture. You may want to cut down the sugar to 1/2 cup if you don't like very sweet cookies. Use holiday colored m&m's for a festive look in lunch boxes or at parties!

I used 15 ounces of peanut butter, left out the butter, used 1 cup of honey in place of the white sugar, and I left out the chocolate chips and M&Ms. These turned out great, and they are semihealthy. I will be making these again. Thanks

Yummy! We didn't have any m&m's or chocolate chips in the house so we substituted raisins. Thanks for satisfying a cookie craving for someone who was out of flour!
