OTT Cookies

The other day I was going to a girls Valentines Day party. I made cupcakes but wanted some cookies too. I almost made my version of Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies but I wanted something new, something different. This is how OTT cookies were born.

OTT Cookies

  Over The Top Cookies!

OTT Cookies

These cookies are that. Brown butter, milk chocolate chips, corn flakes, caramel bits, M&Ms and swirls of peanut butter.

I am not a huge peanut butter fan and most cookies that have peanut butter in them are chock full of peanut butter flavor. These have hints of peanut butter but it is not over powering. Perfect for me :)

OTT Cookies

I used Valentine colored M&M’s but obvi you could use any color of M&M’s anytime of the year! :) 

OTT Cookies

I pressed the M&M’s into the dough after the dough was rolled out and put on the baking sheet.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you all have a fabulous & magical day!

OTT Cookies


  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter + 2 tbsp
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 7 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 1/2 cup caramel bits
  • 1/2 cup M&M's


  1. In a medium bowl combine oat flour, all purpose flour, cornstarch and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan cook the butter except for 2 tbsp. Brown the butter- cook it on medium low until it turns a caramel brown color. You will begin to smell a nutty aroma.
  3. Once butter is browned pour into a mixing bowl, add remaining 2 tbsp butter. Let the mixture sit for 3-4 minutes until all butter is completely melted.
  4. Add dark brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt. Once fully combined mix in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Mix for 3 minutes.
  5. Slowly mix in flour mixture once about 3/4 combined add in 7 tbsp in different parts of the dough and finish mixing the dough.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips, corn flakes and caramel bits. Chill for at least 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350F and if using line your baking sheet with a silpat liner.
  8. Scoop dough into mounds and press M&M's into the top.
  9. Cook for 8-11 minutes. Mine cooked for exactly 10 minutes each batch.
  10. Let cool and devour!

Oh my, these look amazing! I love all the add-ins. I think I like add-ins more than I like cookies, lol.

I believe the add-ins make the cookie!

You weren’t kidding when you called these “over the top” – they look like the perfect cookie, dense and chewy on the inside. I love all the delicious add-ins, especially the cornflakes.

These ARE over the top! And I love every corner and every add-in and every single bite of these! I would LOVE the texture that adding cornstarch brings to cookies.

Yes cornstarch and brown butter are my two favorite things to add to cookies. Besides chocolate that is 😉
