Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

Pin It

Few things in life are better than a delicious oatmeal cookie. That is unless you STUFF those cookies full of crispity Butterfingers!

Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

I keep meaning to make my own, homemade butterfingers. It's been on my foodie bucket list for a long time. I am actually ashamed just HOW long it's been on there, neglected. Especially once I heard that you can make them with just 3 ingredients! *sigh*

I guess I will just have to settle for these right now.



Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from Quaker oats vanishing oatmeal cookie recipe
      makes 24
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C sugar
1 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 C quick oats
12 mini Butterfinger bars {or 2 regular size}, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar and sugar together. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and oats. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix just to combine.{Do not over mix.} Gently mix in the chopped Butterfingers. Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. {Good luck NOT eating the dough!}

Bake for 11-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and after a minute, remove cookies and cool on a cooling rack.


I just love the chunks of orange candy. Mmmmmm.
For these cookies, I used mini Butterfingers, but the regular size would also work great. 


Can't get enough Butterfinger bliss in your life? {Hey, no one's judging here!} Try my Butterfinger Popcorn recipe!

  7. They look so yummy. I have a whole folder full of bookmarked sites of recipes I want to use as a base. I also have tons of printed recipes I want to use as a base. Tonight my daughter said "mom we have too many possible dinners" I laughed so hard.

  9. Exactly how much weight do you think I should gain?! My husband would LOVE these!! Did these end up being a soft oatmeal cookie or more crisp?

    1. Hmmm, I would say both, (I know, that's weird) but probably a little more crispy.

  10. I don't know if these would make it to the oven because the dough looks too good.

  12. Made these cookies last night to take to a friend and they turned out wonderful and tasty. They are a soft cookie with a crunch. My great granddaughter was snatching them right off the cooling rack and telling me they were so good. I will be making these over and over again. I love oatmeal cookies and I love Butterfingers so the combo is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing:)
