Butterscotch Oat Bars

I made these for my Staff Meeting this week and they went down a treat. I wasn't at the meeting but I got lots of compliments when I got back. They are yummy and you can now find butterscotch chips in Sainsburys.

Butterscotch Oat Bars (from Jay's Baking Me Crazy)

155g plain flour
180g oats
½ tsp salt
115g butter
130g butterscotch chips
200g brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla

For the glaze
50g brown sugar
2 tbsp water
90g butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 23cm x 23cm pan with baking parchment.

Put the butterscotch chips in a large bowl. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until nutty brown in color, about 10 mins, stirring regularly with a whisk to prevent burning.

Pour the butter over butterscotch chips and stir until chips are completely melted and smooth.

Stir in sugar and mix until dissolved. Add the vanilla and the egg and mix well. Stir in the flour, oats and salt.

Press into the greased and lined pan and bake for 18-20 mins.

When you take the bars out of the oven, make the glaze. Mix the water and brown sugar in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 30-60 secs or until it starts to just boil.

Remove from the microwave and add the butterscotch chips, stir until completely smooth. Pour over the warm bars. Leave to cool fully, at least 2 hours, before cutting into squares.
