You guys. It’s October. Where on earth did the year go?
I must say though, that it totally doesn’t feel like October here in L.A. For example, yesterday was 91 degrees. What the heck? All I want in life is to throw on my boots and leggings and a big baggy shirt and throw something delicious in the oven, curl up on the couch and watch Homeland on repeat. Is that too much to ask? I sure hope not.
Anyways, now that October is officially here, I’m fully prepared to start baking and braising and cooking up a storm. And my first project: Chewy M&M Oatmeal Cookies. They remind me of home. And so I’m going to pretend that it’s in the 60′s in LA, and start my baking extravaganza. And then eat like 20 of them in honor of my dad’s birthday this week. I’m fairly certain he would totally approve.
And these Chewy M&M Oatmeal Cookies are epic! Chewy. Filled with Oats. And dotted with delicious M&M’s. Could you really ask for anything else?
So while I’m pretending that fall is here, those of you living in the rest of the country where you are actually getting to enjoy fall, you should totally make these. They will make you happy. Especially if you snack on a few about 7 minutes after they come out of the oven. They’ll be extra chewy and the chocolate will still be melted and delicious.
And my fellow Southern Californians, let’s just throw a scoop of ice cream on these and call it a day, shall we?
