1. Heat your oven to 350°F.

2. In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free vegan yellow cake mix, packed brown sugar, softened butter, peanut or almond butter, water, and eggs. Use an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is well combined.

3. Stir in the quick-cooking oats until thoroughly combined.

4. Add the M&M's® milk chocolate candies, white chocolate chips, and pecans (if using). Stir until evenly distributed, creating a loaded cookie dough.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for around 12-14 minutes or until the edges are just golden brown.
