Oatmeal Scotchies

Boy were these bars good.  Since I'm watching how much I eat lately I only had one of these but that was no problem since the rest disappeared pretty quickly. I brought some to work and they were gone by lunch time......I think these would be really good also with a peanut butter and chocolate chip combo. I found this recipe over at Katy's blog Food for a Hungry Soul. I have to say that this soul here is hungry all the time lately!!!  Anyhow, if you are not familiar with Katy's blog please go over and check it out. She has so many good recipes!

Preheat over to 350 degrees F.  Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. 
2 C all- purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C butter, softened
3/4 C white sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 C quick cooking rolled oats
2 C butterscotch chips, divided

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; whisk together.  Add rolled oats and 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips and stir to blend.
In a large bowl, beat butter and both sugars until smooth.  Beat in eggs to make a creamy mixture.
Gradually add flour to butter sugar mixture.  Beat well to combine.
Press dough into prepared pan.  Sprinkle top with remaining butterscotch chips.
Bake for 30 - 35 minutes.  Let cool completely before slicing.
Makes 24 bars

Gifting baked goods to coworkers is the best way to stay on track. This way you have one and don't feel deprived...but also don't eat ten. :P Oatmeal scotchies sound so good to me right now!

I double the chips and LIVE on these. I freeze them and eat them for weeks at a time!
