Are you like me and have a BIG sweet tooth? Then, this dessert is perfect for you! I recently had a Potluck with some friends from church and I decided to make these babies. I didn’t feel like making just a plain ole cookie or brownie. So I made a brownie bar with not just two layers, but THREE. Yes, Three Scrumptious Layers! I had leftovers from the Potluck and even brought some into work the next day. They were a huge hit both times. They are full of flavor, chewy, and yummy! I decided to combine three brownies/cookie recipes. 🙂 The bottom layer is peanut butter cookie, the middle is a chocolate brownie, and the top layer is oatmeal butterscotch, or what some people call Oatmeal Scotchie!
- 16 oz package of refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough
- 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup cocoa
- ¼ tsp salt
- 3 eggs
- ¾ Cup Canola Oil
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 ½ water
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temp
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 ¼ cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat the oven to 350ºF/176ºC. Line a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil then spray with cooking spray (I use canola oil) and lightly flour the bottom.
Combine together the dry ingredients for the brownies: sugar, flour, cocoa and salt. Note: If you don’t feel like doing this part you can use 1 box of brownie mix in place of the dry ingredients.
Then, whisk in the eggs, oil, water, and vanilla until there are no lumps.
Place the brownie mix to the side and use a new bowl to make the oatmeal scotchie dough. Mix together the butter and sugars.
Beat in the egg, until incorporated (20-35 secs).
Add the vanilla.
Add the flour.
Now, using a spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the oats and butterscotch chips.
Now, time to place the ingredients into the pan! Yay!
First, spread the peanut butter dough across the bottom. It may help to use the back of a spoon because the dough is sticky.
Slowly pour the brownie batter across the top of the peanut butter cookie layer.
Add the oatmeal scotchie dough in small spoonfuls across the brownie layer. Be sure not the push the dough into brownie layers because you want to try your best to keep the layers separate. Note: You will not cover all the brownie batter.
Now, bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top layer becomes golden brown.
Allow to cool, then you can pull the foil out of the pan (this makes the brownies/bars easier to cut).
Cut into slices and serve.
