This is another recipe that has been around for as long as I can remember.
The church sent out an e-mail requesting donated cookies for the volunteers of Judgement House and I am always happy to oblige when it involves baked goods. Chris prefers peanut M&M’s and had asked once about using those in lieu of the chocolate so when I stopped off at the store I bought both. The picture shown above are the peanut ones. Plus, I got a big thumbs up from the hubby.
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 1/3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups quick oats
- 1 package M&M’s
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, salt, and flour and mix to combine. Stir in the oats. Add the M&M’s and stir until combined.
Bake 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
*These are great to make during the holidays since M&M’s notoriously offer matching colors to coordinate with whatever holiday is in season!
