Butterscotch Oat Bars

Butterscotch Oat Bars

Jenna Long

These bar cookies are a great replacement to the classic brownie! Try using grated orange zest in the place of the vanilla for a citrusy twist!

These bars are really good! I followed the recipe to the letter...except i only had a 9x13 pan, so I baked the bars for about 30 minutes, until they were golden brown on top and the center was set. These aren't too sweet and have a nice oat-y flavor and crumb. They beg for a glass of cold milk! Be sure to completely cool the bars prior to cutting...don't be tempted to try them early because they will just fall apart while warm!


This was just okay for me. I would suggest adding a teaspoon of salt to balance out the sweetness of these bars.


As other reviewers suggested I added about 1/2 teaspoon salt to counteract the sweetness and the taste was great. Also, as another reviewer noted this is basically the recipe on the back of the Nestle Butterscotch chip package. I was looking to halve the recipe(didn't want 4 doz. cookies) and was able to recalculate it here. I would make this again.
