Chocolate Chip and M&M'S Oatmeal Cookies

These Chocolate Chip and M&M’S Oatmeal Cookies have become one of my favorite recipes! They are so easy to make and absolutely delicious. These cookies are packed with mini chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips and topped with crunchy colorful M&M’S candies.

The secret to these delicious cookies is that they use shortening instead of butter. No waiting for butter to come to room temperature, you can start baking right away. I like keeping these baking sticks on hand for easy measuring.
