Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by  

"LOVE 'em cookies. 'Thanks mom,' said my son. These cookies were a test, and they scored an 'A+.' Made with whole-wheat flour and flax, they are a nice change to the everyday chocolate chip."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.
  3. Beat the butter, brown sugar, flax seed, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg until completely incorporated. Beat in the last egg along with the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Fold oats and butterscotch chips into the dough just enough to evenly combine; drop by ice cream scoop or heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheets for 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack to cool completely.

Crisp and delicious! I added a banana to keep them together more, which made a rounder, fuller cookie, instead of ones that spread a bit thinner like the photo. I also did 1/2 butterscotch chips and 1/2 white chocolate. I used all 12 oz, although I agree with Joey Joan (previous reviewer) that you don't need all 12 oz.

Pretty good cookie. I substituted the flax seed for wheat bran and cut the butter to 1/2 cup with 3 tablespoons vegetable oil and the sugar to 1/3 of a cup. Still very sweet. Mine didn't melt though and I ended up flatening them with a fork.

A nice crisp cookie with a very good flavor. I only used about half the amount of butterscotch chips I think 12 oz would have been way to many.
