Caramel Apple Milky Way Stuffed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Caramel Apple Milky Way Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesRemember last Friday when I promised you ridiculous cookies? Well, HERE THEY ARE in all their glory! Have you seen these Caramel Apple Milky Way’s at Target amongst the Halloween candy? Well, my friend bought a bag, gave me one to try and got me addicted.

So, I got 14,000 bags, naturally.

After the first 7200 bags, I decided to shove them into these cookies…cause that’s healthier than eating them plain. YEAH. My idea of healthy is totally warped. But I think you knew that already. Also, oats and peanut butter are healthy in the correct application. This is not necessarily the healthiest application.

But it’s almost Halloween, so we should all collectively get used to the higher sugar intake. Agreed? Ok good. Glad we’re on the same page.
cookies 1Anyways, these are almost the exact same cookies as these ones, but with a few small modifications. And I didn’t add all the step by step photos in this post either. If you want to see how to make this cookie dough step by step, you can check that out here.

Ok, so step one is to make this big fatty bowl of cookie dough. This is a beautiful sight.

  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, or softened butter
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butters and sugars together. Stir in egg and vanilla bean paste and whip until light in color and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Slowly stir in baking soda, salt, flour and oats until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Using a cookie scoop, create 8 cookie dough balls on your prepared baking sheet.

  1. The fact that you were able to make a PB + Oatmeal + Choc Chip cookie all in one AND then add in so many other awesome things…I need these! They look wonderful!

  2. How i would love to have a bite… yummy cookies

  3. Wow, you are killing me with these cookies… they look way too good.

    I’ve been trying to avoid buying those milky ways but now I’m not sure I can resist any longer!

  4. Can you believe I haven’t tried those candy bars yet?? Where have I been???

    These cookies look seriously good. I need a dozen!!

  5. I’ve never seen milky way in that flavor before. Yum! I think I can get addicted to this one, just like you. 😀

  6. Oh my word, these look amazing!!! I haven’t seen these Milky Ways yet, but you better believe I’ll be looking for them this week!

    Also wanted to say that I love your blog, all your recipes, and you’re a great writer 🙂 I constantly giggle or smile when reading your posts. You actually inspired me in some of my own blog posts.

    Thanks for sharing, Lauren!


  7. I bought a bag of those but didn’t like them:( I am sure they are good in a cookie though!

  8. Um I need to go to Target this moment and get those chocolates. Thank you, and I hate you, and I love you…all at the same time 😛

  9. Oh my goodness… You are totally KILLING ME with these recipes in way that my hips are angry but my mouth and tummy are in the middle of having their very first blog crush. They are head over heels, I think. I found you through pinterest and probably pinned half of your pumpkin recipes which my daughter is super grateful for. Thank you sooo much and I just wanted to let you know that you are the bomb… A pumpkin filled one. And if you had a lurker that looked at almost all of your pumpkin titled recipes the other day… That was me. Not a random crazy person. Or at least, not random to me. LOL. Anyway… Our household is grateful for your mad recipe skillz even if our scales are a lil unhappy. :o)

  10. How could anyone not love these?? I haven’t seen these chocolate bars in Canada, I wonder if they’ll be making an appearance.

  11. I can’t tell you how sad it makes me that we don’t get different flavoured Milky Way’s here in the UK. These sound amazing! I wonder how they would taste with regular old bars instead.

    • Just use snickers bars or anything else chocolatey!

  12. These look AMAZING.

    Has anyone given you a cookbook deal yet? I’m talking to my publisher!

  13. Holy yum. I’m madly in love with these bad boys. Oatmeal, peanut butter AND those ridiculously tasty caramel apple milky ways? Can I move in with you?

  14. Longest cookie name ever. I love it.

    I’ll take three. Maybe four.

  15. I have not been able to get my hands on these little candies! I must find them and soon.

  16. Do cookies get any better than this? Seriously, I think these would compare to those Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies! And that’s saying a lot, considering I am addicted to those things! 😛

  17. I couldn’t find those candies anywhere but I used Milky Way Midnights and Milky Way Caramel and they were a huuuge hit! Thanks soo much for all of your great recipes!
