Whole Wheat Double-Chip Oatmeal Scotchies

I’m supposing to be watching/cutting down on my carb intake, trying to lose some much unwanted pounds and all that. But well, old habits (and cravings) die hard and I really wanted a small nibble of something baked. So I decided to make a quick batch of bars and decided on this one, as I had all of the ingredients on hand. I of course altered a recipe I found to try and make it a little healthier (makes me feel less guilty for cheating) and came up with these:

Whole Wheat Double-Chip Oatmeal Scotchies:

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 ts baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • a big pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cups oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch chips
  • 6 TBLS softened butter
  • 1/3 white sugar
  • 1/3 brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray a 8 x 8 inch square baking pan and set aside.
  • Mix the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl, set aside.
  • In a larger bowl or mixing bowl cream the butter with the sugars. Add in the egg and vanilla and blend well.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the the mixing bowl with the wet ingredients and thoroughly blend.
  • Pour the mix into the baking pan, evenly distribute it and press down firmly.
  • Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until top is golden brown. Allow to cool before cutting.
