On the 12th day of Christmas – Chewy Oatmeal M&M Cookies

When I was a kid I use to love Oatmeal cookies. We use to make it with butter and syrup so  after coming home from school I would melt some butter with syrup on the stove, mix oatmeal with it and eat it,  as is… at one stage I even stopped melting the butter and just creamed everything together. I didn’t even bake it.


A while ago I found an oatmeal cookie recipe and baked some cookies but then I found this recipe from Sallysbakingaddiction and I just had to try it. It looked so festive with all the colours and I figured the kids will just love it.img_6567

The cookies are chewy and kind of buttery. The M&M’s inside also adds a but more chocolate creaminess to the cookie.


The only thing I didn’t like about the recipe is that the M&M’s cracked open and I had to put some fresh M&M’s on the cookies before I took the pictures to make it look better, but other than that we ate all the cookies I baked and they kept very well in the fridge for up to a week. I’m sure you could store them for longer but mine was only covered with a piece of plastic and not kept in a proper container.

Recipe Rating 8/10
