Oatmeal M&M Cookies
Your kids are going to love helping you make these Oatmeal M&M Cookies. I don’t know about your family, but when my kids know that I am in the kitchen making cookies, they come running. Though it’s usually to see who can like the bowl or spoon when I’m done with the mixing.
Making these Oatmeal M&M Cookies is a great way to help teach the younger kids about their colors. You could say things like “can you please help me find the red ones”. You can also throw in some counting action like “add 4 M&M’s”. They will have so much fun they won’t even realize they are learning.
Freshly baked cookies are the stuff childhood dreams are made of and these Oatmeal M&M Cookies are no exception. Whip up a quick batch today! Your kids will definitely thank you for it.
- ½ Cup butter
- ½ Cup brown sugar
- ½ Cup white sugar

- 2 Cups rolled oats
- ¾ Cups flour
- 1 Cup M&M’s

In a bowl cream sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add the banana, egg and baking powder.

Chill the dough for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
With the help of your hands form small balls of dough, placing them 2 inches apart.
Take to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until done.
Keep in mind, when taking out of the oven they will look undone and soft but after a couple of minutes cooling down they will get firm.
