i was cleaning out my pantry and discovered a HUGE container of oats. i’m not really one for oatmeal and same goes for oatmeal raisin cookies, so i had to do some brainstorming to come up with a way to use AND enjoy my oats. what i came up with is a chewy, sweet, melty, cookie that i find goes very well with coffee and also holds it’s chew for the long haul. that, my friends, is a winning cookie.



  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 + 2tbs flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

preheat oven to 375.

combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl, set aside.

in a separate bowl, cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar. add egg and vanilla. blend until smooth.

add dry ingredients to wet ingredients – beat until just mixed.

stir in oats and chips.

scoop out rounded tbs onto greased cookie sheet.

bake 9-12 minutes.
