M&M Oatmeal Cookies

Recently, our family receieved a large box filled with M&Ms so naturally, I started to surf around the web for a good M&M Cookie Recipe. I found a recipe for M&M Oatmeal Cookies over at Pint Sized Baker that I decided to try.

I rounded up the kids, who were super keen to help me bake cookies, of course and we started to make the batch.

Mmmm...don't they just look mouth watering?! Let me tell you, they are!

The biggest surprise is that when I went to get the ingredients out of the cupboard, I discovered that I didn't have all purpose flour, so instead we used whole wheat and we didn't have mini M&Ms like the recipe called for.

Family Thoughts


Despite the fact that we didn't have regular flour, these cookies turned out exceptionally well. I honestly couldn't tell that they were made with whole wheat flour, which to me is very surprising.

The children had a difficult time rolling the cookie balls with the large M&Ms. At one point, so many candies were falling to the floor, I thought they might be doing it on purpose so that they could snack on some of them, but that was definitely not the case. Within 5 minutes of cookie ball rolling, they gave up and left it up to me to finish off the task. Indeed, I will use mini M&Ms next time we make this recipe.

And yes, there WILL be a next time!

  1. I keep forgetting how much using M and Ms instead of chips makes them so much more exciting for the kids! Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Great idea! I might have to hunt down the Christmas M&M's! I get stumped for "Christmas Cookies" that kids would like to eat. So many of them are just made to look pretty or you are OD-ing on icing! I love decorating cookies, but at times, too much icing and sprinkles for my liking.
