I have tried making granola bars more times than I can count. And every single time, I’m not happy with the end product. I’ll keep trying though.
Until I find that perfect recipe, I’m happy making these as a substitute. They’re probably not as good for you as granola bars since they are much closer to a cookie than a granola bar, but they sure are good.They are a favorite snack around our house.
If you’re not a butterscotch fan, you can replace the butterscotch chips with raisins or chocolate chips.
Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 cup 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 15×10 baking (jelly-roll) pan and bake at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until lightly browned.
By the way, if you have a tried-and-true, never-fail granola recipe, I’d love to hear about it!!
