This recipe is very similar to my other M&M cookie recipe. It uses butter instead of shortening and has chocolate chips to make it a little more devilish :)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup M&M candies
Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt and chocolate chips. Set aside.
In large bowl, combine butter and sugars. Mix until smooth and creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla until well combined.
Gradually add flour mixture until well combined. Stir in oatmeal and M&M's.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet or baking stone. You can spray your cookie sheet with a little cooking spray if you're not using a baking stone.
Bake 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until cookies just begin to brown. Transfer to baking rack to cool.
Store in airtight container :)
