M & M Oatmeal Cookie Bars


I am most definitely a cookie Monster!  Grab 'n' Go yummies - no spoon or fork necessary...right up my alley!

This is another easy and quick recipe for some great bar cookies. 

I found the recipe at Mommy's Kitchen. Tina made them for Valentine's Day and used the holiday colored M & M' can also substitute Reese's peanut butter pieces instead if you'd like.

Enjoyable ANY way you try it!  

{Be sure to check out Tina's recipe and hints.}

I've made these for a bake sale - the colorful candies always create a strong 'Buy Me!' visual appeal.

They'd be great for the holidays, using those famous red and green candies.

These can't be all bad for you - they have oatmeal in them!


1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. brown sugar, packed
(light or dark)
2 c. Bisquick Baking Mix
(any biscuit baking mix is fine)
1 egg
1 stick margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. M & M candies

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8" X 8" sq. pan. In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, except candies.  Mix until well blended.  Stir in candies, reserving a few to put on top.  Pat into prepared pan.  Press a few M & M's on top and bake about 20 minutes.  Allow to cool and cut into bars.

Yepper....Quick & easy....MY kind of cookie!
