Hello everyone!

I love cookies! If you can’t tell already by all the cookie recipes I have shared with you already… But I’m sure you knew that.

For a cookie lover like myself, having no brown sugar was not gonna stop me… especially when those pesky cravings were so strong! I mean seriously, what have you guys been doing during this quarantine besides baking and eating?!

I feel like I have gained so much weight, but hey it’s happy weight, right?!

Baking has helped me destress and stay calm during these uncertain time! I actually even put 20 of the best stress baking recipes together for you if you need something to do during this time.

I guess baking has been a blessing and a curse, I bake and destress. Then I freak out about using all the ingredients that I had so carefully purchased to last me a while. But don’t worry about that anymore! Now if you run out of brown sugar, you can still make incredible cookies without brown sugar.

These cookies that I made have the exact same texture and flavor of a regular traditional chocolate chip cookie without any brown sugar needed!

Tips for the perfect chocolate chip cookies without brown sugar

  • Don’t over bake the cookies– Just like any cookie recipe, these chocolate chip cookies with no brown sugar should not be over baked. They will continue baking as you pull them out of the oven. This technique will ensure that you get a soft and chewy center.
  • Make sure to refrigerate your cookie dough before baking – If you don’t have enough time and can’t do the full 8 hours or overnight, try and aim for at least 2 hours in the fridge. This will allow the dough to harden and come together and develop a better flavor.

How to store these easy M&M cookies ?

You can store these chocolate chip m&m’s cookie in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days or in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
