Oatmeal, M&M and Chocolate Chip Cookies


My grandmother made the absolute best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I remember she would store them in the deep freezer and we would sneak them and consume frozen whenever we had the opportunity. When I was old enough, I asked my grandmother for her recipe. I was surprised to learn it was the recipe from the Quaker Oats oatmeal box!

I have made some adjustments to the recipe to make it a bit more interesting...


Mini M&Ms milk chocolate baking bits in combination with mini chocolate chips give uniform chocolateness throughout the cookie.  Addition of almond flour in lieu of adding chopped nuts gives a bit more flavor complexity.  A perfect cookie!
