Mini Egg Oatmeal Cookies

My family Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a a classic, so I used that cookie recipe as a base and just switched up the chocolate chips for Mini Eggs.

Easter is next weekend and you know what that means — a new Mini Egg recipe! I made Mini Egg Pancakes last year and Mini Egg Cookies a couple of years ago and by far, the Mini Egg Cookies are the most popular, so I decided to stay on the cookie theme, but this year opted for Oatmeal Cookies.

My family Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a a classic, so I used that cookie recipe as a base and just switched up the chocolate chips for Mini Eggs. I crushed up some of the Mini Eggs to incorporate into the cookie dough and then topped each cookie with a whole Mini Egg. You could use Mini Eggs or Eggies, whichever you prefer!

Mini Egg Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup crushed Mini Eggs
  • 36 whole Mini Eggs
  1. Set oven to 350º F.
  2. Cream together the margarine, white sugar and brown sugar.
  3. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add in the salt, baking soda, flour and oatmeal. Mix to incorporate.
  5. Gently mix in the crushed Mini Eggs.
  6. Use a cookie scoop to portion out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Top each ball of cookie dough with a whole Mini Egg.
  7. Bake for 11 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven, allow them to set a bit on the cookie sheet and then move them to a cooling rack to allow them to cool completely.

The cookies turned out really well. The Oatmeal Cookie recipe is always great and I thought that the Mini Eggs were a really fun addition for Easter.

… and because we don’t need 3 dozen cookies kicking around at home, there will be a bunch of cookies going to work with both me and Byron. I figure it’s never a bad idea to bring cookies to work when you are the new girl at the office.

Happy Sunday!
