Servings 15


  • 1 cup Butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon Salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon¬†
  • 3 cups Oats
  • 1 cup Butterscotch chips


  • Beat the butter or margarine with the sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue beating until well combined.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add to the mixing bowl and beat just until combined.
  • By hand, stir in the oats and butterscotch chips. Press into a greased 15x10 baking (jelly-roll) pan and bake at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until lightly browned.


  • Customize by swapping some or all of the butterscotch chips for chocolate chips, peanut chips, raisins, dried cranberries, or whatever you can come up with!
  • Reduce the amount of oats you add to just 2 cups for a more cookie bar-like texture.
  • If you bake in a 13 x 9 casserole dish (instead of a 15 x 10 baking sheet), be prepared to add about 5 minutes to the cooking time and watch carefully.
