If you love no bake cookies AND you love oatmeal scotchies: these NO BAKE Oatmeal Scotchies are for you! Cookies packed with butterscotch flavor and ready on your table in minutes!


  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoom vanilla extract
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 3 cups quick cook oatmeal (dry)


  1. In large saucepan, on medium high heat, add butter, sugar and milk. Bring to a boil, and boil for a complete full minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, salt and butterscotch morsels.
  2. Stir for about 1-2 minutes, the butterscotch won't completely melt, it's okay. Fold in oatmeal.
  3. Drop by large cookie scoop (2 tablespoon) onto a large sheet of parchment paper. Allow to set and cool, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container. Enjoy.


  • Store uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Quick oats. These are more finely processed than old-fashioned oats, helping the cookies stick together without flour. DO NOT cook the oatmeal before adding to the recipe!
  • The butterscotch morsels won't fully melt when you stir them into the butter mixture. That's okay! As long as they are softened and gooey, the dough will come together well.
  • These cookies are very sweet. More like a fudge with oatmeal than a traditional baked cookie. A little goes a long way when it comes to no bake scotchies!
  • Change up the flavor. Make a batch of biscoff no bake cookies, nutella no bake cookies, or peanut butter no bake cookies by just changing out the butterscotch!
