Oatmeal M&M Cookies


Kids love these cookies because they are tasty, colorful and full of M&M’s.  Plus, the addition of the oatmeal gives them a chewy texture and a healthy dose of fiber. 


1 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup butter, softened

¾ cup brown sugar

¾ cup sugar

2 eggs

3 cups oatmeal

1 tsp vanilla

1 ½-2 cups M&M morsels

Cream the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs.  Mix in the flour, baking soda and vanilla.  Then add the oatmeal.  Stir in the M&M morsels at the end.  Drop the cookie dough by spoonful on a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 7 minutes or until the bottoms are starting to turn light golden brown. 

Remove the pan from the oven and let the cookies cool on the pan for 5-10 minutes.  Transfer them to a wire rack and let them cool completely.  The cookies will firm up a little bit as they cool.
