M&M Cookies

Published by on

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but school starts in two weeks. Where did the summer go? How is this even possible?



To help ease this unwelcome shift back to the daily grind, I’ll be sharing some tasty lunch box recipes over the next few weeks. Today I present one of my favorite desserts: the M&M cookie.


Simple pantry ingredients, one mixing bowl, and 25 minutes is all you need to make warm, chewy, and perfectly sweet M&M cookies. If you like to prep ahead simply double the batch; they freeze beautifully and you can pull them out as needed. Enjoy!
