Hey there! It’s Aida from The Crafting Foodie. I hope you’re enjoying the end of summer, and that the transition to the school year is going smoothly. Today I’m sharing these Kitchen Sink Cookies. They make the perfect lunchbox treat or an after-school snack.
These chewy, soft Kitchen Sink Cookies are filled with chocolate chips, white chocolate, oatmeal, M&M’s and one unique add-in that gives these cookies a salty, crunch.
I love cookies. They’re so easy to make, and they can be eaten on the go. Plus, they make a pretty perfect snack. You can grab one as you head out the door for gymnastics or you can pack them in a lunchbox as an extra treat.
These Kitchen Sink Cookies are jam-packed with delicious add-in’s. The oatmeal in the cookie gives it flavor and it’s deliciously chewy texture. The chips (both chocolate and white) add richness, and the M&M’s give the cookies color and a tiny bit of crunch.
My favorite addition to the cookie is crushed pretzel pieces. They give these cookies a great hit of salt and much-needed texture. I also think that the pretzels make a great replacement for nuts. Nut allergies are so prevalent that these cookies are perfect for a nut-free classroom or school.
