Chewy Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

I love baking for a gathering. It gives me a chance to make treats that my family might snub. Oatmeal, coconut, and toffee. Not always popular with my crew. Only me.

So I baked up a batch of this Oatmeal Cookies Recipe to take to my sister’s house in Colorado. Us Weber girls stick together when it comes to sweets. I knew Maddy would help me eat them. And love them every bit as much as I do!

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

We’re now in the midst of winter, and I’m pining for the sultry dog days of summer. One of the best ways to keep warm during the winter doldrums is to turn on the oven and bake something yummy! These easy oatmeal cookies are perfect for lunch boxes, after school snacks, and any occasion where you need to bring a dessert. Plus, cookies are the perfect, portable treat when traveling. I’ve carried a cake in a metal baking dish through TSA at our airport, but putting cookies in my suitcase was much less trying on my arm muscles!

Oatmeal Cookie Recipes are one of my biggest weaknesses. I have to promise not to start taste testing the dough or I’ll eat more than I care to admit! I was on good behavior with this latest batch, even though I loaded them with my favorite add-ins, toffee, white chocolate, and coconut!!! But feel free to use dark chocolate instead of white chocolate, skip the toffee and add a second type of chocolate chip or totally omit the coconut. They’ll still taste delicious!! How to make the best oatmeal cookies is in your hands!!

A Few Tips for Making these Loaded Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:

Many of these cookie making tips are universal for all cookie baking, but worth repeating if you’re a novice baker.

  • PRO-Tip: Have your eggs and butter at room temperature unless otherwise specified. This helps for easy incorporation into the dough.
  • Line your baking sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Silpats are a nice alternative, but you do need to wash them after use.
  • PRO-Tip: Do not overmix the dough. I tend to make most cookie doughs by hand, using a wooden spoon to mix instead of a mixer. This limits the development of gluten and minimizes air being added to the dough, making more tender and chewy cookies respectively.
  • Use a cookie disher to scoop out even sized dough balls to bake.
  • With cookie dough filled with add-ins, it’s hard to form perfectly round dough balls. So one of my tricks is to tap the hot, fresh out of the oven cookies, into rounder shapes using my spatula.
  • Let your cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Let the baking sheet cool before reusing. You do not want the dough to start melting before it gets into the oven.
  • If you notice your cookies seem flat, consider chilling the dough for an hour, then scooping out another batch.
