- 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.
