No Bake Oatmeal Scotchies cookie recipe: your favorite classic butterscotch oatmeal cookie in a delicious no bake dessert!

Why this Recipe Works

When I left for college, oatmeal butterscotch cookies were the one treat I asked my mom to make for me on weekends I came home. I also asked for a box full of Kraft mac and cheese, Cool Ranch Doritos, and Ramen…not exactly a creative cook back then.

But when it came to cookies, I would much rather have butterscotch over Chocolate Chip Cookies or Peanut Butter Cookies.

I love butterscotch.

These Oatmeal Scotchie Bars are one of my favorite cookie bars! Have you tried them yet?

I also love No Bake Cookies. When the weather hits 90 degrees F and I have zero desire to turn on my oven, I choose no bake cookies as my stand-by dessert.

So it occurred to me, why not combine my favorite cookies with a no bake recipe??

These can be whipped up from start to finish in about 15 minutes. I like these cold, so storing them in a covered container in the refrigerator is perfect!

Comments & Reviews

  1. I wish I would have read the comments first. While these are VERY good they are almost too sweet to enjoy. I’d definitely cut the sugar in half (or even more) next timeI also sprinkled some course salt to make them salted butterscotch no bake cookies. Unfortunately they were too sweet for us and we threw most of them away 😞

  2. Love this twist! No bake cookies are where it’s at with the weather so crazy hot! Can’t wait to try!
