Brown Sugar Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars

I go through some weird phases.  The most recent one has been a butterscotch phase.  Bri's dad is big fan of butterscotch and it was just his birthday!  So, I made some butterscotch bars.  And now, I am really into butterscotch!

Butterscotch is super weird.  I mean, what is it?  So, my friend and I looked it up and found out that it is a delightful combination of brown sugar and butter! No wonder it is so delicious!

These butterscotch bars are super easy and I adapted them for a previous time by swapping the sugar for light brown sugar.  Brown sugar, butter, and butterscotch all combined in a great oatmeal bar!  You have to make these!

Brown Sugar Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars

1 cup flour
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups old-fashioned oats
12 oz butterscotch chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a 13 by 9 inch pan
2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together.
3. In a large bowl, beat the butter with the brown sugar until well combined.  Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.  Add in the flour mixture and slowly mix until just combined.  Add in the oats and chips and stir to combine evenly throughout the mixture.
4. Spread the batter into your prepared pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes.  The edges should be slightly browned.  Let cool completely and then cut into bars.

Enjoy :)
