Your favorite oatmeal cookie topped with chocolate candies! These Oatmeal M&M Cookie are soft and chewy and taste amazing!
Oatmeal M&M Cookie
I remember as a kids looking down on oatmeal cookies. Really mom, oatmeal, like a healthy food inside my cookie, you have to be kidding me! It was on the same level as cookies with raisins in them. I changed my tune though after I actually ate one of my moms oatmeal cookies. You know how it is, you absolutely hate a food as a child until you actually eat it years later. I have to say those these Oatmeal M&M Cookie won my kids over right away! I think the chocolate candies helped just a little 😉
For this recipe I made my oatmeal cookies like I would anyway. I used brown sugar, cinnamon, oats, but then at the end I folded in a cup of M&Ms. Totally optional but I did add a few more M&Ms to the top of the cookie before baking. Just press them into the dough ball on the baking sheet. I love how it brings the colors out and makes the cookies pop.
