These Loaded Oatmeal Cookies are full of caramel bits, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and toffee bits. There is so much deliciousness going on here!
I’m feeling like a wee bit of a dork and my ego has been slightly wounded. Here’s why . . .
The other day there was some garbage and recycling sitting on my back porch that needed to be taken out to the garbage cans. I knew if I waited for my boys to take it out, it would probably never happen, so I decided to haul it out myself.
I didn’t have my shoes on, so trying to get it done quickly, I walked over to the shoe basket by our garage door and just stuck my feet into a pair of my boy’s snow boots. I didn’t take the time to tie them or even put my feet in all the way (huge mistake!). I took about 5 steps and next thing I knew I was doing a face plant onto our tile floor. . . ouch! It happened so fast, there was nothing I could do to catch myself. It was like you see in cartoons or movies when shoelaces are tied together as a joke, and when the person goes to walk, they can’t.
Well that’s exactly was happened, only the shoelaces weren’t tied together, I had just stepped on one of them so when I went to step with that foot, it didn’t go anywhere. . . . duh!!!
I laid on the floor, let out a big “oooowwww”, but no one came to my rescue so I gingerly stood up and took the garbage out, after I tucked the shoelaces into the boots. So the moral of this story is, tie your shoes laces people, or better yet, make your kids take out the garbage.
These Loaded Oatmeal Cookies are buttery, crispy, chewy and chock full of caramel bits, white and butterscotch chips and toffee bits. Talk about a delectable oatmeal cookie. I actually could have eaten the entire bowl of dough . . .watch out, it’s so, so good.
I thought about calling them Caramel White Chocolate Butterscotch Toffee Oatmeal Cookies, but that was just waaay to long, so I decided on loaded oatmeal cookies, because that’s exactly what they are. . . loaded with lots and lots of yummy stuff.

Ok, can you say heaven in a cookie???? These were sooooooo good!!! My family totally devoured these cookies. I love the oatmeal, caramel, different chips and toffee bits combination. Plus, we decided since there were oats in there, we could eat more. Healthier, right? Holy moly, I think I’ll go have more:)
I’m so glad you loved them as much as we did! They’re kind of addicting, don’t you think? I totally agree with the oatmeal thing, they’ve got to be slightly healthier, right?! Thanks for the comment!
do you think I could use Old Fashioned oats instead of quick oats?
Yes Carissa, you should be fine using old fashioned oats. Thanks for looking.
