Page's Chocolate Chip Delights

I love Chocolate chip cookies.  Add in the oatmeal and I am absolutely in heaven!  Here is a little twist to the traditional Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies.  Make sure you have a large glass of ice cold milk to enjoy with these delicious delights!  Yum!  

Page's Chocolate Chip Delights

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
3 cups Old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
toffee bits
milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In large mixing bowl, add in butter, brown sugar, white sugar and eggs.  Beat until creamy, then stir in vanilla extract. 

In a blender, pour in the 3 cups of oats.  Blend on low speed until oats are a fine powder.  

In a smaller mixing bowl, combine self-rising flour and oats.  Mix into the creamed mixture until thoroughly blended.  Drop by heaping tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Sprinkle toffee bits on top of each cookie.  Bake in preheated oven for 11 to 12 minutes.  As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, sprinkle each cookie with the milk chocolate chips.  Allow the cookies to cool on the baking dish for about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.  

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen
