Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Skor Cookies

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!



  1. Best.cookie.ever. I've been looking for the perfect recipe - and this is it! Soft, chewy, sweet and the right combo of chocolate, cinammon, oatmeal and skor bits. I'll be your taste tester anytime!

  2. Ice cream sandwiches? Now you're talking! Love the idea of adding Skor bits.

  3. This is the best tasting cookie I've ever made (and i've made plenty of cookies!). However, I will reinforce the importance of rolling them into balls before baking. I did not do this with the first batch and they turned out very flat and thin (they still tasted good though!). Overall, I will definitely be making these again.
