oatmeal coconut dark chocolate and toffee chip cookies

I've mentioned Tiffany's blog, Eat at Home a few times recently. My life has been pretty hectic the past couple of months and I've found myself running out of inspiration in the kitchen, especially at dinnertime. Thank goodness for Tiffany's weekly menus, complete with shopping list and recipes. The recipes are affordable, easy to prepare and best of all, delicious. Another bonus is the fact that my son is enjoying these recipes. He is my picky eater so I'm always thrilled when I don't have to whip up a second meal for his dining pleasure.

Tiffany's weekly menus always include one dessert recipe. The weekly menu I chose for this past week included a recipe for cookies. Tiffany calls these gems "Way to a Man's Heart Cookies". Well, I think they should be named, "Way to ANYBODY'S Heart Cookies". They are packed with all sorts of scrumptious-ness. Oats, coconut, chocolate chips and Heath toffee chips are a heart warming combination to be sure.

I only made a couple of changes to the original recipe. I used dark chocolate chips in place of the semi sweet chips and I threw in a tablespoon of ground golden flax. The flax made me feel a little less guilty about consuming such sweet goodness.

I'll let you hop over to Eat at Home for the recipe. While you're there be sure and stay a while and have a peek around!

HaPpY mOnDaY!!

Coming up this week...A fabulous giveaway to celebrate year number two for theUngourmet. ;) Don't miss it!

Now I am not normally a sweets girl--or a chocolate girl--but these cookies sound good enough to bring me to the dark side. Yum.

You made them healthy! Love it!

Well these cookies certainly denote the way to MY heart! I love anything that involves coconut. And dark chocolate. And toffee. Oh my,

i already love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but the fact that theres coconut added in makes me want these even more!!! theres nothing like a hint of coconut in baking that really makes the taste buds jump <3

Beautiful shot of those amazing cookies!!!

Stella said...

Hey Kim, I on-line missed you (smile)! I can see that you're doing well though-these cookies look scrumptious. And I might have added something like flax too. It's always nice for a dessert to at least have a redeeming quality;)
p.s. Your site looks great. I can't figure out if anything is different, but I think there is...?

Reading the title alone made my mouth water. Couldn't be a greater collection of ingredients in a cookie!! Amazing!

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Ooh yum! Those look tasty! And I like the milk in the little jar. :)

I definitely go through phases where I can't even BEGIN to think of something to make for dinner! I just stare into the cupboards and my mind draws a total blank. I hate that!

Debbie said...

I think you've been out to get me lately! All these incredibly irresistible sweets!

Monet said...

I always like adding flax to my cookies (they help me with the guilt factor too!) These cookies would certainly win my heart! I love chocolate and heath bars. Yum! Thank you for sharing, sweet woman!

Jeannie said...

A healthier version of chocolate cookie? hmmm, maybe I should start baking these instead of my usual very sinful ones! Looks delicious!

They are the best thing ever even if though don't seem like it but yours sound pretty darn good to. Might make them this weekend when this batch is eaten up. We go thru cookies like in 3 days! XO
