I had a craving for oatmeal cookies this weekend so I decided to whip up a batch of this classic with a sweet twist. This recipe is super easy and is by no means low fat but I do promise you will have 4+ dozen of deliciously chewy cookies. I can't stop eating them!
1 cup of softened butter
1 cup of golden brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (more if you wish)
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of Skor toffee bits
1 heaping cup of milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
With the help of a mixer beat together butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
Gradually add the dry mixture to your wet mixture. Beat until well blended.
Add the oats one cup at a time.
Once the oats appear coated with dough mix in the Skor bits and chocolate chips. Be careful not to over mix!
Using a teaspoon and your hands form dough into a 1"-1.5" balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies for no more than 10 minutes or until just golden on top. Let the cookies stand 5+ minutes before transferring them to your cooling racks. You'll notice that the cookies will be super soft until they set.
Serve with a tall glass of cold milk.
Alternatively you can bake larger cookies and create to die for ice cream sandwiches!
