This recipe for Oatmeal Cookies with Heath Toffee Bits is a slight variation on a oatmeal cookie recipe I have from Quaker Oats. Warren loves oatmeal cookies and he loves Heath Bars… so I thought …why not combine the two. The result was a pretty darn good cookie, one my son would have loved in his lunch box.
When my son was in grammar school his school didn’t have a cafeteria so he had to bring his lunch… I always included a fruit and a sweet…. often a 2 or 3 homemade cookies. I especially liked to experiment with add-ins. I always started my Christmas cookie baking around Thanksgiving, so his lunch box desserts were a variety of cookies I baked. I never sent him with chips or junk food… little did I know he would auction off his “Mother’s homemade cookies” for Cheetos and Fritos… so much for no junk food…. I guess I should be proud … apparently my homemade cookies fetched 2 to 1…. So my son made out like a bandit.
The recipe is simple and you can find a bag of Heath Bits in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
These are delicious and a great addition to cookies you make for the holidays, as well as, a great lunch box dessert anytime.
