Oatmeal M&M Cookies

I feel like since the name of my blog is “Sweet as a Cookie” it’s only fair if I post a cookie recipe every week (correct me if I’m wrong). I don’t really even like cookies… I’m a bigger fan of the dough πŸ™‚ but they are one of my favorite things to bake. You can make so many variations of a cookie but with other desserts your limited. When I do eat a cookie I want one that’s soft and chewy… (unless it’s a sugar cookie, then I want it crunchy). These are the perfect cookies for a late night cookie craving… but I can’t promise you’ll be able to stop eating after only one.

Oatmeal m&m Cookies by sweetasacookie.com | A soft and chewy oatmeal cookie full of m&m's My boyfriend likes to call me ‘cookie monster’ I’m not sure if I’m a fan of the nickname yet or not… either way I live up to the name. I don’t eat cookies like a monster, I just bake them like a monster. My kitchen after a day of baking… HA! Flour is all over the counter, the floor, the sink, the Keurig, the window and the refrigerator (which is on the other side of the room). It doesn’t seem to matter how careful I am, I always seem to make a huge mess. I’ve learned to laugh about it and I think my boyfriend has too (only after he’s eating a cookie, of course). I could cover the whole kitchen in plastic wrap and somehow still manage to get every crumb of mess I made under the plastic wrap. I like to call myself magical… my boyfriend likes to call me messy… who’s wrong?

    These look so good! Can I use old fashioned oats instead of quick?

    How many cookies does this make? If I make them smaller do I decrease the cooking time? Thanks.
