Soft M&M cookies

Tomorrow I am having a small Valentine's party for my class and wanted to make some type of Valentine's treat. I have a ton of random allergies in my class but the poor little boy with the egg allergy NEVER gets to eat anything good. I was desperate to find an eggless cookie recipe so he could eat for once. This recipe was suggested and was perfect. They were delicious and I am sure my kids will like them tomorrow!

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 6 oz. container plain(or vanilla for extra flavor) low fat yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used M&Ms)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Stir in yogurt and vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until incorporated, then mix in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown.

Cool for a minute on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.


  1. How super sweet of you to make treats for your class! I especially think it was very thoughtful for you to find an eggless cookie recipe too!

  2. Glad you liked the recipe! Hope your class enjoys them. Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. Just an FYI, but you may or may not know that Weight Watcher's has a cake recipe...just cake mix and diet soda (diet coke/pepsi for chocolate cake, diet cream soda for vanilla cake, etc.)

    No eggs, no oil, etc.

    I'm sure it would work for cupcakes too...just an idea for the egg boy :)

    Love the blog!
