Did you know that January is Oatmeal Month?
I just found out myself, and I’m really kind of excited. We love oatmeal cookies, breads, muffins, and treats of all kinds around here. So we’ll have to see what we can come up with during the course of the month.
I decided to make yet another simple dessert that can be made any night of the week. Most of us have the basics right in our cupboard.
As you would suspect we start out with the basic ingredients, oatmeal of course, chocolate chips, a Golden Vanilla cake mix, Heath Chocolate Toffee Bits, butter and eggs.
Honestly, I don’t usually have Heath Toffee Bits, but today I had them and they are so good in these cookies. But if you don’t have them, don’t worry use 1/2 cup of anything you like chopped into pieces.
It could even be your favorite cereal.
Just your basic cookie dough waiting to be scooped onto a baking sheet.
Now all you need is a cold glass of milk and you’re set…
Oatmeal Chocolate Toffee Cookies
1 cake mix – golden vanilla, yellow, or white – I used golden vanilla
1/3 butter, softened but not melted
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits
1/2 cup chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a spoon, mix cake mix and quick oats together. With same spoon, add eggs, and butter to the mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough balls onto a cookie sheet lined with a baking mat, or lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake 9-12 minutes or until light golden brown edges. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before moving. Remove cookies and place on nonstick rack to cool.
You can use milk chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips or even dark chocolate chips for this recipe. Use whatever you like.
Have a great rest of the day everyone!
