Butterlita Bars

This recipe comes from the the Bitchin Kitchen web site which is run by Faith Heinauer. This is what she said in describing Bitchin Kitchen:

" I grew up in a household that loved not only food, but also the creative process of cooking and entertaining. My father is a professional chef and my mother was a former pastry chef. After earning my degree in hotel and restaurant management, I joined my father's catering business and started teaching cooking classes. Growing up in the restaurant scene offers a lot of culinary observations; add my knack for experimenting in the kitchen, and you've got my collection of recipes and tricks of the trade. So, if you want to talk food, get a great recipe or hear the latest culinary scoop, you're at the right place!"

"Butterlita bars - Butterscotch-goodness meets chocolate and oats. It's a match made in heaven".


2 cups oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped
1 cup butterscotch sauce

  • Preheat the oven to 350º.
  • Grease and flour a 9 x 13-inch baking pan; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir together until thoroughly combined. Add the butter and mix until blended.
  • Distribute half of the mixture in the pan and gently press to form an even layer. Reserve the other half.
  • Bake the first layer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans over crust. Drizzle the butterscotch sauce over the pecans.
  • Evenly distribute the remaining oat mixture over the caramel layer. Gently press the crumb layer to make sure it is even.
  • Bake until top layer is golden brown, about 18 - 20 minutes.
  • Remove and cool completely.
  • Cut into little bite-size pieces – these babies are rich.
