I used pastel M&M's, which gave them a very festive look just in time for Easter. Not that these cookies made it anywhere near next Sunday. I had to hide four of them just so I would have enough to photograph the next day.

Makes 26-30 cookies.
1-1/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup oats
1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup M&Ms
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
2/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup pecans, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and following five ingredients, through coconut.
In a large bowl, beat sugars and butter until combined, about one minute. Add egg and vanilla extract. Slowly beat in the dry ingredients. With a rubber spatula, fold in the remaining ingredients (M&Ms, white chocolate chips, raisins, and pecans).
Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls (or slightly larger). Place on prepared baking sheets and bake 10 minutes on the middle rack, one batch at a time.
