Butterscotch & White Chocolate Chip Oat Drops

It’s winter big time right now where I live!  We are under a heavy snowfall warning, and could get up to 25cm of snow in total!  Not to mention that tonight we could see -20 degrees C temperatures.  It’s so wintery and beautiful!  No really, it is!  😉  I love this weather around the holiday season (but ask me how I feel about it come March…now that’s a different story).

Anyway, it’s the perfect kind of weather for making cookies!  Cozy, warm, gooey cookies!

These cookies are so great!  They’re soft and flavourful, and they make a perfect nut-free snack for the kids lunch boxes!  I also love this recipe because it makes a huge batch!  Lots for eating, lots for freezing!

    This recipe sounds delicious and I can’t wait to try it. But as the mother of two kids who are peanut and tree nut allergic, I find it impossible to find butterscotch chipits that are safe for my kids. Every label I have seen says they “may contain traces of peanuts or nuts”. If you know of some safe butterscotch chipits for peanut/nut allergic people, please let me know.

  2. Have these cookies in the oven right now! I cannot wait to try them. I was looking for something different than the typical oatmeal and raisin cookie and came across this recipe on pinterest!

  4. […] Butterscotch and White Chocolate Chip Oat Drops – from A Pretty Life 2012 (First, adding coconut is a must!! Second with the addition of Butterscotch and White Chocolate they were a little too sweet for me, so next time I would try adding 3/4 cups total of a mixture of the two chips. Otherwise they were a delicious twist on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie) […]
