oatmeal toffee cookies

These cookies ROCK ... they are easy, so yummy and only 90 calories.  I was feeling skeptical when I saw only 1/4 cup of butter and I was almost tempted to increase it but, the point was a light cookie.  I was so surprised (although my picture does not show it) they were thick and golden with a soft center and no crispy edges.  These are definitely going to be a easy go to cookie.  Please try these I want to see if you enjoy these 90 calorie treats as much as I do.

oatmeal toffee cookies
adapted: cooking light

3.4 ounces all-purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/3 cup heath bar bits

Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Stir in heath bar bits.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray or silpat sheets. Bake at 350° for 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans 1 minute. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
