What’s easier than making cookies? Making cookie BARS! One batch, one pan, done! These bars have the flavors of a scotcheroo packed into an oatmeal bar. Yum!
I write a cooking blog, but my baking skills are always a work in progress. I love having home baked goods at home, but a lot of the time they don’t turn out how I want them to! Ugh. That’s why I migrate toward easy goodies such as cookie bars. These Scotcheroo Oatmeal Cookie Bars are a mash-up of my favorite potluck dessert – scotcheroos, and an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I’ve made lots of different recipes for cookie bars over the years, and I feel like these are a great blend of all of them. Check out Tastes Better From Scratch blog for a great, basic oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bar too.
Loaded with oatmeal, butterscotch, and chocolate these can be cut into small squares because they are quite rich. Meaning one pan will feed a crowd! Or in my case, my hungry husband for 3 days. Did I lose anyone at the word “scotcheroo”? I feel like I have met people who have no idea what these are. Maybe it’s a Midwest thing? You should Google it if you don’t know what they are. They’re basically an amped up peanut butter-y rice krispie treat with a chocolate-butterscotch “frosting”.
