Maple Bacon Ginger Oatmeal Scotchies

Oatmeal Scotchies get a sweet and spicy twist by using maple syrup instead of sugar, crisp bacon, and crystallized ginger nibs. Oatmeal and butterscotch never tasted so good!

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 cups flour

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
  • 12 ounce package butterscotch baking chips
  • 1/2 cup crystallized ginger chips
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits, crisply fried

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Beat butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla together until smooth.
  • Gradually beat in the flour mixture.

Notes

I suggest actually leaving these cookies out. They lost their crispiness when stored in a zip lock bag and cookie jar.
