Oatmeal Butterscotch Blondies

These are my favorite thing to eat right now. Sweet, rich, chewy, chunky, crazy delicious blondies. The simple vanilla batter is overstuffed with walnuts, oats, butterscotch, and chocolate chips.

Obviously the add-ins can be altered and adjusted to suit your tastes, but the great thing about these bars is their ability to satisfy a lot of sweet desires.

The batter is so easy even a blonde could make it (ba damp ching). One bowl a whisk and a spatula are all you'll need to get the blondie batter made.

Place brown sugar, vanilla and salt in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir and allow the mixture to sit for 2 minutes. The butter melts the sugar and this is what creates the papery thin coating on top of the bars.

Bake at 325 and make sure not to over bake your treats. As soon as the edges begin to lightly brown the blondies are done. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

Woops! Couldn't wait. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Butterscotch Blondies

1 stick of butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 and line 8" pan with aluminum foil. Spray with canola oil spray. Melt butter. Meanwhile add brown sugar, vanilla and salt to a large bowl. Pour melted butter over sugar, stir slightly and let sit for 2 minutes. Whisk ingredients together until smooth. Add egg and mix to blend. Add flour and use a spatula to stir until halfway incorporated. Add chips, nuts, and oats and stir until everything is combined. Batter will be thick.

Pour into prepared pan and spread batter to the edges. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until the top has a sheen and edges are lightly golden. Cool completely before cutting into pieces with a sharp knife.
