This month’s Fill the Cookie Jar theme is back to school or kids favorites. For some reason when I think back to school, I think oatmeal, but I also think I am suddenly really busy. The No Bake Butterscotch Cookies work for both – they have oatmeal and they are super quick and easy. Now, I will warn you, they are really, really sweet. My daughter had a friend over when I was making them, and I even asked the two of them if they were too sweet. There response was to say that there were really sweet, and then a few minutes later, “Can we have more?” So, sometimes sweet is good. Oh, and if you are still thinking about the detox post from yesterday, yes, I am still eating healthy. I made these a couple of weeks ago.
The recipe for these cookies is based on the traditional no bake cookie recipe. I just left out the cocoa and replaced the peanut butter with butterscotch chips. I then folded more butterscotch chips into the cookies before dropping them onto the cookie sheet. The second addition of butterscotch chips mostly melted in with the cookies too, which I wasn’t really expecting, but was good anyway. Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to scroll down and see the other Fill the Cookie Jar posts this month!

I love butterscotch! These cookies look so easy and so delicious. Thank you for sharing them.
I’ve never made no bake cookies, but I’m definitely going to make your no bake butterscotch cookies, they sound so delicious. I can’t wait to try them.
No bake cookies are so easy. I like the chocolate and hazelnut even better, I think. But, my daughter likes these.
these look yummy!
I love butterscotch and what is better than a no bake cookie? I have to say that I don’t think there is such a thing as too sweet! Thanks for being a part of the Fill The Cookie Jar Facebook group!

I used to make something similar to this…. years ago! I loved them, although I did love super sweet much more back then. I do know my husband will love these, and quick recipes like this are what I need to send things in the semi with him!
They would be great for snacking on the road.

I love butterscotch chips, but I haven’t yet found them in the UK. I’ve pinned so I can make them the next time I’m home in Canada. They look delicious!
I have no idea with food laws, etc., but you might be able to order them from somewhere.

When I saw this recipe on the list.. I had to chuckle as this is a cookie that I was planning on making for this month’s cookie. We often had no bake cookies for after school lunch. I need to try butterscotch in my cookies.
Great minds think alike!
