Oatmeal Toffee Cookies Recipe

Kelsey Banfield | The Naptime Chef

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies are best enjoyed, well, anytime! So delicious.

I don’t bake as much in the summer, mostly because the oven heats up my house too much. My oven is old and poorly insulated, so I am almost instantly sweating once the preheating stage is finished.

So, when I do bake, I make it count.

I stick to our favorite recipes like these oatmeal toffee cookies that can withstand the humidity without going stale in less than a day. I also double up on recipes like these and freeze half for later.

The beauty of these cookies is that they aren’t weighed down with dark, rich chocolate flavors which can be overbearing in the summer months. Instead, they are light and buttery and almost crispy.

They are moist in the middle, and the oatmeal cinnamon combination is reminiscent of the old oatmeal raisin cookie.

However, instead of fruit, I use little toffee bits that give them an extra sweetness and candy-like twist. Their sturdy texture makes them perfect for transporting to the beach for picnics.

They also hold up well if they are made into sandwiches with a thick slab of ice cream. I'm eyeing up this homemade peanut butter ice cream, for sure.

Since school is out, I can also say that these cookies are excellent for making with kids. Since there is no major trick or delicate step, it is easy to get the kids in the kitchen with you, hand them the bowl, and let them take charge.

Also, if they feel like making up their own recipe, hand them the reigns and let them give it a try. Chocolate chips, M&M’s, peanut butter chips, and shredded coconut would all taste amazing.

You could even add a little more spice to flavor them more intensely, or remove it altogether for a milder treat. And don’t forget: buy a large selection of ice cream to sandwich in the middle.

When it comes to ice cream sandwiches these really make the best!
