Oatmeal Trash Cookies | You may wonder what that means. Well……it means you can add any leftover treats you have in the pantry. These cookies have a little bit of everything in them and are super flavorful. Like, pretzels, dried cranberries, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, toffee bits and nuts! Perfect for a bake sale, take along to a potluck or barbecue! Don’t forget about game day!
I named these cookies, oatmeal trash cookies because I used up the my leftover chips, nuts, toffee bits and dried cranberries. Don’t know what to do with that last 1/2 cup? Now you do!
These oatmeal trash cookies are moist and full of flavor. I love sweet and salty together and that’s what these cookies deliver. Don’t have the same leftovers? Use what you have….just keep the measurement down to 1/2 cup per ingredient. If you don’t have pretzels, another great way to add a salty touch is with coarsely smashed potato chips.
