A bit different than your average oatmeal cookie, these Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies are delightfully chewy and full of flavourful butterscotch chips!Jump to Recipe
There is just something so satisfying about a good oatmeal cookie. They have a certain cozy and homemade comforting quality to them. Not to mention, they are definitely waaaaay healthier than regular cookies with all of the oatmeal added... Basically breakfast cookies, am I right?!

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies
- baking sheet(s)
- parchment paper or silicone baking mat(s)
- mixing bowl
- electric handheld mixer
- measuring cups & spoons
- silicone spatula
- 1 cup salted butter, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ½ cups butterscotch chips
- Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or silicone baking mats or spray with nonstick spray.
- Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric handheld mixer on high speed for 1 minute. Add the eggs, vanilla, and salt and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Add the oats, flour, and baking soda and mix at low speed until just combined. Fold in the butterscotch chips.
- Scoop the dough using a medium cookie scoop or teaspoon onto the prepared baking sheets, 12 cookies per pan. Bake cookies one pan at a time in the preheated oven for 9-12 minutes or until golden around the edges and just slightly soft looking on top. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling while you bake the remaining pans of cookies. Enjoy!
