Chewy M&M Oatmeal Cookies

This was another great oatmeal cookie recipe courtesy of AllRecipes! This were very thin, crispy, and chewy all at the same time - which I loved! I love the crisp edges and chewy centers. The original recipe calls for chocolate chips and walnuts but we used mini M&Ms instead. I'm sure whatever you want to add to these would work great. I thought they'd be really yummy with some fruit pieces in there too.


Chewy M&M Oatmeal Cookies from PANTHERA on AllRecipes
Makes 3 dozen cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup M&Ms (or chocolate chips)

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips gently. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned around the edges. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
