Scotch (Butterscotch) Bars

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Vitameatavegamin Gi

From Cooking Light Magazine, these are dense and chewy and are a classic combination of oats and butterscotch. Be sure to not over-bake them because they dry out fast. It's a sweet, light treat!

These are pretty good, although I needed to add some water to the batter to get everything mixed together. They do dry out very quickly, I think adding some yogurt or buttermilk might help them.
