Oatmeal Scotchie Muffins

If you like biting into a warm oatmeal scotchie cookie and who doesn’t, you will absolutely love these muffins. They are so good! This recipe for oatmeal scotchie muffins has ingredients almost identical to the cookie. And just like the cookies, these too are hard to resist. My hubby who has told me for over thirty years how much he doesn’t like butterscotch, ate four muffins. Not to shabby for someone who doesn’t like butterscotch.

No Need For 

Oatmeal Scotchie Muffins are so delicious, there really is no need for any butter or jam. If you do want to top these muffins with something, a light drizzle of honey would be super or maybe a light smear of cinnamon butter. Whether you choose to top these muffins with a topping or decide to eat them plain, one thing is for certain, they’re terrific. Biting into a oatmeal scotchie muffin is like biting into a warm oatmeal cookie!

Best Way to Describe

The best way way to describe oatmeal scotchie muffins would be to say that they are a combination of a warm oatmeal scotchie cookie and baked oatmeal all rolled into one giant muffin. How good does that sound! I’m not sure why but I never really liked ‘butterscotch’ anything until I got older. That could very well be because my grandma always had butterscotch buttons or disc candies. I’ve eaten my fair share of butterscotch buttons that’s for sure!
