  • 1 stick salted butter 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil measured in liquid form
  • 3 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 and 1/2 cup rolled oats


  • Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang so you can lift the bars out for easy cutting and serving later. 
  • Make the batter: Melt butter and whisk together with the melted coconut oil in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugars, then the eggs + vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and stir until almost combined, but there are still some streaks of flour remaining. Add butterscotch chips and oats, and stir in. There should be no flour streaks anymore. 
  • Bake: Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 29-32 minutes. The bars will look done - the edges will be slightly puffed and the center will appear set. A toothpick inserted in the center will have some moist blondie crumbs (not really crumbs, but not quite batter either) on it. They're done at this point! 
  • Serve + Store: Let cool completely before cutting if you want the squares to hold their shapes. If that doesn't matter, dig in as soon as you want! The center will be pretty gooey when they first come out of the oven, but they'll set up more and more the longer they cool. 
    You can quick cool them in the fridge - let them cool in the pan on a cooling rack at room temp for 30 minutes after removing from the oven, then loosely place a piece of foil over the top of the pan and chill in the fridge until cooled.
