Easter M & M cookies

If you are like me and went to Sam's Club, you have a huge, mega bad of M & M's sitting in your cupboard.  If not, maybe you should go buy some! I thought I would give you a recipe to make some cookies. These cookies taste just like the M & M cookies from my memories, and kids love them!  I have always loved M & M cookies!  Enjoy and have a happy Easter!

  1. Those are so huge and so beautiful I seriously can’t believe they’re gluten-free! You sure you didn’t pick up some pre-baked cookies at sam’s club to photograph 😉
    Seriously though, this recipe makes me sooo excited for the promise of moist m&m cookies. Love it!!

  2. LOL, I promise you they aren’t from Sam’s club! It would be nice if they had something like that for sale though! They are however, my favorite cookie I’ve made since going gluten free. You could use that base and add just plain chocolate chips to it for chocolate chip cookies. Even two days later they are still soft and a little chewy. I can’t stop eating them!

  3. are m & m’s gluten free?? i thought they were and then a friend with celiacs told me last week that they weren’t, i stopped eating them and felt better – just wondering if you eat them & feel fine? i tried to check out the mars website, but couldn’t find a definitive answer.

  4. Kristy, Every source I check says they are gluten free. Here is a link to an organization that has verified it with Mars. It’s a 2008 gluten free candy list from Raising our Celiac Kids

    I say, eat them all you want!
