Meet my husbands favorite cookie. These are the “hey, take these up north with you” cookies. They’re also my “Oh my gosh! I just forgot to get the only two things you asked me to pick up from the grocery store. Peace offering?” cookies. I know that if I present these cookies to him, all will be well.

Many years ago, a nurse I worked with Michelle brought in these cookies to work to pass out. I of course accepted (who passes up free cookies?) and took a bite… and died right there in my scrubs at my desk. They are really REALLLLY good cookies. They are soft and chewy, with crispy candy-like edges!

Now I know some of you who aren’t huge fan of coconut may turn your nose up at these. So did my husband until I held him down and shoved one in his mouth. Oh would you look at that?! He actually likes loves them and now he claims they’re his favorite cookies. Crazy. I don’t think there is an over whelming coco-nutty flavor, and neither does Pat.

Promise.

These oatmeal chocolate chip toffee cookies have so much going on in them you won’t know which ingredient is your favorite. Will it be the chocolate? The toffee bits? Oatmeal? Or will it be the love-to-hate ingredient coconut?

To Make These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies You Will Need:

  • unbleached all-purpose flour
  • baking soda
  • cinnamon
  • salt
  • softened unsalted butter
  • dark brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • large eggs
  • chocolate chips
  • toffee bits-o-brickle
  • quick cooking oats
  • coconut flakes.

To start, preheat your oven to 375° and line two rimmed baking pans with either parchment paper or silicon baking mats.

Then in a small bowl, whisk together 1-3/4 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon each ground cinnamon and baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Once combined, set this off to the side.

Meanwhile in the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, throw in two sticks of room temperature unsalted butter. Mix on low until creamy (30 seconds or so) then add in the 2 cups of dark brown sugar. Continue to mix until incorporated and the butter/sugar mixture is light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Add in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extra and add one egg in at a time, mixing well after each one.

Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just incorporated.

Next, gradually add in the 3 cups of quick oats, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.

Now is the time, I highly suggest you turn to your most sturdy spatula. I have honestly broken a cheap, plastic-handled spatula on this cookie dough before. And the motor on my kitchen aid can only handle so much.

Trust me on this.

Then add in the entire bag of toffee (bits o’ brickle), the cup of sweetened coconut flakes and the (semi-sweet or milk chocolate) chocolate chips. If using regular chocolate chips, I would about a heaping cup or more. And if you’re using larger chunked chocolate chips (like I am above) I would add 1-1/2 cups orrrr the entire bag. Totally up to you.

If using regular chocolate chips, use a 2 tablespoon scoop. Therefore, if using chocolate chunks, I recommend a 3 tablespoon scoop to measure the cookie dough. Place the cookie dough onto the prepared pans, leaving an inch or so in-between each cookie.

Lastly, bake in your preheated 375° oven for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating the pan to ensure even baking. Then, once baked, remove the cookies and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before removing.

THE BEST.

Finely it’s time to enjoy one of these oatmeal chocolate chip toffee cookies.

Now, look at the bottom of this cookie! Because of toffee that has melted and then cooled, it gives these oatmeal chocolate chip toffee cookies a candy-like crunch to the bottom. Which is my favorite part. Normally no one would care about the bottom of their cookie, but when it comes to these however, it’s a thing totally worth noticing.

  • 1 cup coconut flakes (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • 1 cup up to 1 (10 ounce) bag semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (use however much you like!)**

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 375° line your baking sheets with parchment or a silicon mat.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer - fitted with your paddle attachment, add in the softened butter and mix until creamy. Next, add in the dark brown sugar and mix until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Then add in the vanilla and one egg at a time, mixing well after each egg. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.

Next add in half of the flour mixture, mixing on low until all ingredients are incorporated. Then repeat with the remaining flour. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.

Gradually add in the quick oats, mixing until combined. Then with a sturdy spatula, stir in by hand the toffee bits, coconut and chocolate chips. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl one last time.

Use a (2 or 3 tablespoon**) cookie scoop to measure the cookie dough and place an inch or so apart on prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes and let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from pan as the toffee may stick.

**if using regular size chocolate chips, I would go for the 2 tablespoon scoop. Use the 3 tablespoon scoop if using larger chocolate chunks.
