Toffee-Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Jennifer, Bake or Break

Whole wheat flour is an often overlooked baking ingredient in many kitchens. However, it is a great substitute for traditional flour in many recipes, like this one for oatmeal cookies.

These cookies are everything I love about oatmeal cookies – lots of oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. The addition of toffee chips and toasted almonds add some crunch and another boost of flavor.

Use softened butter for cookies and cakes.

Bringing butter to room temperature helps it incorporate better with other ingredients.
