ohmygosh they look amazing! I’ll be honest….I haven’t purchased those M & Ms because they kind of sound gross to me…but I know a lot of people have said they’re delicious. Definitely a yayyy on the pumpkin

Julie September 23, 2013 at 10:56 am

How were they on their own?

Janetha September 23, 2013 at 11:09 am

i have never met an M&m i didn’t like…

kendrra thoms September 23, 2013 at 10:58 am

i WILL be making these this fall! woo hoo for easy dessert! thanks for the recipe!

lindsay September 23, 2013 at 11:38 am

I can’t believe how simple these are! Definitely going to give it a try. I’m not usually big on the spice part of pumpkin spice, but it’s worth a try! I might sub in just regular mms. Thanks for the recipe!

Madison September 23, 2013 at 11:43 am

I LOVE pumpkin and I love these cookies! Thank you for sharing. :)

Annette@FitnessPerks September 23, 2013 at 11:43 am

I love simple recipes. ;)

Sara @ fitcupcaker September 23, 2013 at 11:58 am

target, of course! they have everything :) I looked at kroger for those m&m and they didnt have them! Cookies look so good!

Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries September 23, 2013 at 12:16 pm

Uh you better believe I’m making these! Loooove pumpkin! Those M&Ms intrigue me…

momma b. September 23, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Ummm I need to try one or two of these!! They look and sound deee-licious!

Love, love, love, love anything pumpkin……
Fall dessert would have to be scones aka pillows of heaven :-)

Love you!!

Nicole @ Fruit 'N' Fitness September 23, 2013 at 1:21 pm

Love it! Pumpkin is always, always a good choice :). I must go to target to get these m&m’s, I heard they are the only ones selling them. I also love that cookies, in moderation, are allowed on the challenge. I hope!

Janetha September 23, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Wellllll.. you’re not supposed to have cookies. Technically.. ahaha.

Bonnie September 23, 2013 at 2:18 pm

ha! I was wondering if you were “allowed” to eat them…I love that you did! You are really doing amazing with your challenge – I know you wouldn’t go overboard and that a cookie in moderation won’t affect you. ;) Well done! …and now I will go to Target and see if those M&M’s are in Canada on the weekend! :D

marie September 25, 2013 at 10:05 am

Bonnie- did you find them in Canada?? I was wondering that too!

purelytwins September 23, 2013 at 1:42 pm

love pumpkin :)
we just went to the store and stocked up!!

Katie September 23, 2013 at 4:11 pm

They had a bowl of those m&ms at church this weekend, and I think i walked by it (took a handful) about sixteen times.

Jay Scott September 23, 2013 at 5:59 pm

Pumpkin Spice M&M’s don’t sound gross to me! I’m planning out my Halloween night (I always eat all of my cravings – but just for one night). I”m going to have to put these cookies on the possibilities list! I can’t believe there is nothing but spice cake mix and pumpkin in there. Talk about easy!


Janetha September 24, 2013 at 10:02 am

I do the same thing with cravings :)

jodie September 23, 2013 at 6:10 pm

Did you taste them?? Or are you making them for someone else? They look great!

Janetha September 24, 2013 at 10:02 am

I make baked goods a few times a week for my office!

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles September 23, 2013 at 6:24 pm

Can never go wrong with pumpkin ;-) I saw those M&Ms when I was in the States – now I wish I had picked up a bag!

Lisa September 23, 2013 at 6:37 pm

oh, I will definitely be making these!!! Y-U-M!!! :-)

Lisa @ Lisa Living Well September 23, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Mmm…I definitely need to make those this weekend! I am obsessed with pumpkin this time of year too.

Nicole September 23, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Omg pumpkin, I want these cookies now!! I’ll have to keep an eye out for those M&M’s.

Corrie Anne September 23, 2013 at 7:25 pm

This looks like a great Cookie Friday idea!! Love pumpkin!

Caitlyn September 23, 2013 at 9:04 pm

“Pumpkin, it’s what Autumn is about!” it!!!

I really badly want to make these cookies. I have no will power, so I can’t until Halloween. Mission tomorrow: Target for Pumpkin M&M’s!

Carbzilla September 23, 2013 at 10:33 pm

I hope pumpkin replaced the Candy Corn ones cuz those were Gross with a capital G!

PS we’ve been thinking of getting a new dog, and I found some rescue Entlebucher mixes! Such cute dogs, and I know that Penny’s such a sweet girl! Tempting!

Leslie September 24, 2013 at 7:50 am

When I saw the picture of the M&M’s bag I knew I was doomed ;-) These sound perfect for this fall. Thanks for sharing!

Christin@christinjoyful September 24, 2013 at 8:32 am

Sinead September 24, 2013 at 1:49 pm

I made a pumpkin loaf last week which was pretty good. I love pumpkin everything but unfortunately here in Ireland most shops don’t stock those varieties. Most be a USA thing!!!

Biz September 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm

What the fuck??!! I need to go to Target – stat!! OMG, I am a pumpkin whore – love everything about it and am surprised I’ve gone this long into September without making anything pumpkin yet!

These are the first things on the list to make with pumpkin:

Janetha September 25, 2013 at 9:04 am

hahahah i love you

STUFT Mama September 24, 2013 at 4:44 pm

Hope @ With A Side Of Hope September 25, 2013 at 6:08 am

These cookies look fantastic! I definitely need to pick up a bag of those m&m’s and make these :)

Betty September 25, 2013 at 8:01 am

Sarah @ September 25, 2013 at 10:50 am

omggggggggg. Reason #8625298 Park City needs a Target. And this reason tops the list!!! Those cookies look delicious!

Katy O September 26, 2013 at 1:45 pm

I made these last night for a gathering and they were a hit! I couldn’t find the pumpkin spice M&M’s so I used cinnamon chips and white chocolate chips!! :)

Janetha September 27, 2013 at 11:49 am

oh great tip! xo

Katie September 30, 2013 at 6:20 am

Made these last night…They are so soft and delicious…However I sent them off to work with my loves so I didn’t eat them all since I’m trying to get this post- baby body back! Ha ;)

Janetha September 30, 2013 at 8:39 am

kristen @ livinlifeinlouie October 1, 2013 at 1:04 pm
