We adore chocolate chip cookies. These Healthier Dark Chocolate M&M Cookies are a nice little treat for the family. Take them along for a party, picnic or put them in a lunchbox for a bit of mid day energy.
I thought Semi Sweet dark chocolate M&Ms baking bits were healthier because of the dark chocolate. They were certainly billed that way on the package! I got them home and realized the ingredients are exactly what I warn you all to stay away from! Always read the label! I really knew better! But they were cute! I was in a hurry, and they make cute, tasty cookies! So I made them. Here’s an upgraded version of this recipe.

The coconut oil and organic sugar help digest these little dolls. Use organic eggs and flour and these cookies get even better! Your kids will love them. So will you!

Recipe Notes for Healthier Dark Chocolate M&M Cookies:
These are pretty easy to put together. Just follow the recipe! This recipe originally came right off the M&M package and then I changed it up a bit. Also I did NOT follow all the package directions. When I made this recipe it was really dry. The package says to chill it an hour or overnight, but we are using coconut oil which goes hard at fridge temps. So I only chilled it about 15 minutes. That was plenty! Instead of dropping the dough by spoonfuls onto the greased cookie sheet I made balls. This worked great! There was no dropping that dough off a spoon!
These baked quick too! The package says 8 to 12 minutes depending on how crispy you like your cookies. My oven had them done perfectly in 8! And perfect they are. Just as good as they look! Soft and chewy. With those lovely pops of chocolate in every bite! So good!
Tasty with little pops of color for fun! These are a delightful treat for the lunchbox, party or snacks!
