Oatmeal Toffee Cookies with Toasted Coconut

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies with Toasted Coconut

I decided to go through my baking pantry for this week’s school lunch treat. I found some quick oats, two heath bars, and a bit of coconut so I decided to throw them together and make some cookies. I’ve had a big sweet tooth lately so why did I have to make cookies with all of my favorite ingredients? Now they are sitting on the counter taunting me. To make matters worse, my kids had one after school and said they are”SO AMAZING” and “totally blog worthy”.  I may just have to have one for dessert tonight.

How to Make Oatmeal Toffee Cookies with Toasted Coconut

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Beat the butter and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla then beat until well combined.

Pour the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl; mix well.

Gradually add the oat mixture to the butter mixture until combined. Add the crushed heath bars and half of the coconut. Mix until well combined.

Drop small rounded balls of cooking dough on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Flatten the cookies a little bit then sprinkle some of the remaining coconut evenly on top of each cookie.
