Recipe: Oatmeal Cookies with Heath Toffee Bits

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.

First time I started making them was back in 2008 and got the recipe from the back of the heath bar bit bag. Now in December 2010 It's no longer there and thanks to this website I can now make them again.
