Cowboy Cookies with Toffee Bits (no coconut)

I love cookies. I’d almost rather eat a cookie than any other dessert.  Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite especially the way Mom makes hers (check that recipe here). But now that I’ve discovered this treasured Cowboy Cookie recipe, Mom’s have some competition.

This cowboy cookie recipe has oats (old fashioned or quick oats), chocolate chips, and Toffee Bits (Heath). While some cowboy cookie recipes feature other ingredients, this is a cowboy cookie without coconut and nuts.

Toffee chips are typically found in bags in the same aisle as the other chocolate chips and baking supplies. The Heath brand are easy to find, or get them in our Amazon Store (check out our Pantry Essentials section).  If all else fails, buy larger Heath bars and chop them into small pieces.

Cowboy Cookies with Oatmeal

My kids had a snow day from school earlier this year; actually let me rephrase that, it was technically an e-learning day which means I was in charge of helping them with their daily school work from home.

Thank goodness that one of the lessons was to make cookies and work on measurements. That was a relief.

I let my middle daughter pick out a cookie recipe, and she picked these Cowboy Cookies with Oatmeal from an old teacher cookbook.

Letting the kids or grandkids help with baking is a great way to work on fractions. We got all the cups and measuring spoons out, and I made my daughter read me the name of each cup. It’s a very logical way to think about fractions, and such a great life lesson too!
