These M&M cookies are so soft and chewy, perfect for when you or a loved one needs a treat! Allergy-friendly, so they’re perfect for everybody!
Don’t let the use of coconut oil fool you, I wouldn’t call these healthy cookies. I would like to point out that I am a believer of egg replacers, though! In the past, I solely relied on flax eggs. While I love using flax eggs and there’s nothing wrong with them, I simply wanted to try out a new product, Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer. If you can’t find this egg replacer in stores or purchase it from Amazon, then try flax eggs or your favorite substitute. I loved how the egg replacer worked and can’t wait to try it in other recipes! It’s just potato starch, tapioca flour, baking soda, and psyllium husk fiber. No grains, soy, gluten, or beans. Depending on if you’re replacing an egg white, yolk, or whole egg, you just add varying amounts of water.
Just to keep in real, I know M&M’s are not vegan or dairy-free. But like I stated in my previous Monster Cookies post when it comes to M&M’s, you know what you can tolerate and what you can’t! If you’re lactose intolerant, like me, you may tolerate dark and semi-sweet chocolate just fine. If not or if you’re vegan, don’t worry! There are chocolatey candies out there for you!
