M and M Cookies with Oatmeal

I had a multi-kid play date at my house the other day. The Moms sat and talked together while the kids played!  Fun!  It was great to see them having a good time and really nice to catch up with my friends!

While they were over I made some M and M cookies.  I had bought the M and M's on sale after Valentine's Day.  I saw the recipe below and thought it would be a great recipe.  And it was.  The cookies disappeared-  love that.  The oats make them a bit more toothsome.  Definitely a cookie recipe I would make again.

Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies 

  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk M and M's
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray or grease with butter.

In the bowl of the food processor, pulse oats until mixture resembles coarse meal, with just a few pea-size pieces remaining; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 3- 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla and egg until well combined. Gradually add both flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoons of batter onto prepared baking sheet.  Place into oven and bake until edges are golden brown but center is still moist, about 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
