These little morsels are going to be the SOFTEST, CHEWIEST oatmeal cookies you’ll ever have.

Each cookie is speckled with bits of toffee and are so amazingly scrumptious that you won’t even realize that they’re vegan and are practically guilt-free! Who says cookies can’t be made healthy and delicious at the same time?

We rarely ever have toffee around the house because it’s one of those treats that ends up sitting in our snack cupboard for much too long.

Why? Because toffee tends to be too sweet for our liking and after a few pieces or three, we get sick of it and so it gets tossed aside 🙁

But, along came my most brilliant idea yet,

Why not chop it all up and toss it in a batch of cookies? I mean everything tastes even more amazing in cookies! 🙂

Plus, I could easily lower the amount of sugar I add to the cookie recipe to mellow out the sweetness of the toffee!

Sounds like a deliciously ingenious win-win solution to a “problem” if you ask me!

And so, about an hour later, the first of many batches of these oatmeal toffee cookie babies were born. 😛

I saw first of many batches because we still have a truckload of toffee in our pantry and they ended up being so soft and chewy that they disappeared in no time!
