These Oatmeal Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are loaded with chocolate chips, toffee bits and oatmeal. . . does it get any better? They’re soft, chewy with just a slight crisp on the edges, they’re crazy delicious!
Happy Wednesday, my friends! I know I said I was posting a new recipe yesterday but stuff happened. Ugh. I couldn’t log in to my email to give you this awesome cookie recipe from another one of my new contributors!! Meet Jodi from 5 Boys Baker below. She is my new blogging buddy and such an amazing foodie. I LOVE her recipes and her blog, and I know you will too! I am so excited she is a part of my team. 🙂
Hi! I’m Jodi and I blog over at 5 Boys Baker. I’m so excited for this chance to be a contributor here on Holly’s blog. I’ve loved and followed her blog for years and absolutely love her recipes!
In case you couldn’t tell from the name of my blog I have 5 sons. I am completely outnumbered at my house, even our dog is a boy. Life with boys has definitely been an adventure and I wouldn’t trade a second of it. My boys are my greatest taste testers and every recipe I post has to be given the “BW” thumbs up from them. If you’re wondering what “BW” is, it means blog worthy. That’s been our thing around here since I started my blog. My boys taste everything I make and will say “definitely BW mom” or definitely not BW.
I have loved to bake for as long as I remember. My sweet grandma and mom taught me everything I know and it’s because I them that I love to bake. Cookies are definitely one of my favorite things to make. I think I have more cookie recipes on my site than anything else. There is nothing better than a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie, or any kind of cookie. But I’m not going to lie, it’s all about the dough too. What is it about cookie dough that makes it impossible to not eat? Are you a cookie dough lover like me?
That being said, I figured my first guest post here on Life in the Lofthouse obviously needed to be a cookie recipe.
These Oatmeal Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies have quickly become a favorite at our house. They’re loaded with chocolate chips, toffee bits and oatmeal. . . does it get any better? They’re soft, chewy with just a slight crisp on the edges, they’re crazy delicious! Like I mentioned before, cookie dough is totally my thing and this cookie dough is insanely good. When I make these I probably eat more dough than I do cookies. Ok, who am I kidding, I do that with almost any cookie dough (lol!).
Skor bits are my absolute favorite, but sadly they stopped selling them in the United States years ago (that was a sad, sad day). You can find them online (a little pricey, but kinda worth it) or if you’re ever in Canada you can buy them there. I’ve had two friends go to Canada this past year and have been kind enough to grab me some (best friends ever!!).
I hope you love these as much as we do.
