Oatmeal Jumble Cookies

I combined a favorite bar recipe and cookie recipe to come up with these cookies. They stay chewy and keep well.

    Yummy cookies. I didn't have butterscotch chips on hand but had white chocolate chips so used those. I reduced the baking time by a minute and allowed the cookies to set on the baking sheet another minute before I removed them to the cooling rack. They were perfectly done. I stored them in an air tight container so they stayed chewy. An excellent cookie.

    May not need to bake them the full 10 minutes. Delicious! I love the combination of flavors. Tastes like a homemade granola bar. A nice hardy cookie to ship overseas :)
