Whole Wheat M&M Cookies

This month is flying by!  I am actually on a plane as I write this blog, cool, right?

So I was re-organizing my baking/spice cabinet the other day and found a nearly full bag of whole wheat flour that I totally forgot about. I’ve never had a whole wheat chocolate chip cookie but have heard they are quite tasty so I gave it a shot. I have to say these were great. I brought them into my co-workers for a meeting we were having and they just flew out of the containers.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sifted whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup plain M & M’s
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and both sugars together until fluffy. Then add in the milk, vanilla and eggs.

In separate bowl sift in flours, then mix in baking soda and salt.  Slowly blend dry mixture into creamed batter.

Once mixed together thoroughly fold in the chocolate chips and M & M’s. Walnuts, too, if you’d like. I usually make 1/2 of the batter with and half without.

Roll about a tablespoon of dough and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

Warm, crispy cookies!

For a fun twist…

I also made these with Peanut M&M’s! I’ve never seen anyone make cookies with those before so I thought I would try it out. I loved them!

Same ingredients only switch regular M&M’s for Peanut ones!

Ta-da!

 

CinnaDoodle Crunch

One of my all-time favorite cookies (Snickerdoodles) with a fun twist!

  • 1 Cup of Softened Butter
  • 1 1/2 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 Cups of Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons of Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 2 Cups of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

To Roll cookies in:

  • 1/4 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Optional: 1 1/2 Cups of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix butter and sugar together until creamy. Add in Eggs and Vanilla.

Slowly mix in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Crush up 2 cups of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and add into cookie dough.

Make the mixture to roll the cookies into.


Use a teaspoon to scoop up the dough and drop into the mix. Use your hands to smooth the shape of the cookie. Place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookie is lightly golden.

Cool and devour!

FYI: Cereal gets a little soft in the cookie. I might try this again and only roll the cookie in the cereal. Still delicious though!
