Chocolate Chip Toffee Oatmeal Cookies

The flavors in these cookies are out-of-bounds! Toffee bits. Chocolate Chips. Coconut. Oatmeal. It’s enough to make your head spin!

Made entirely with brown sugar, they have notes of buttery toffee running through them punctuated by semi-sweet chocolate chips and the chewy texture of coconut and oats.

If you like salty with your sweet –  a little sprinkle of coarse salt on top will rock your world.

These were much better a few hours out of the oven then straight from the oven while still warm. Although seemingly harmless in appearance these aren’t your average, every day cookie. Coming from someone who doesn’t even like cookies all that much – there’s something about their soft chewiness and warm flavors that is completely addictive.

I got tired of going back for “just one more” and started eating them two at a time. Stacked on top of each other. Double deckers.

Doubly delicious.

    I love this recipe. I always have trouble with my baking soda/baking powder ratios in oatmeal cookie recipes. Sometimes I leave it all out and sometimes I use more powder than soda. I’ll have to try and equal ratio next time. I’ve made an almost identical cookie before, too.. oats, coconut, and toffee. can’t go wrong there!

      Hi Sally! I have that problem too! I made these without baking powder and they were super flat and spread out way too much. Adding the baking powder fixed that.

    Not being a cookie fan, if you can even believe that after all the sweets I post, I agree soft and chewy is a must.

    Beautiful display, as always Reeni!

    Have a glorious week
