These butterscotch bars are a textural and flavorful delight and inspired by one of our favorite Cooks Country recipes for Revel Bars. A chewy base of oats, almonds, and brown sugar serves as the foundation for a gooey, thick layer of butterscotch, which supports a crunchy streusel topping. Resting the bars after broiling them is important for retaining their shape. We found that 4 to 6 hours of cooling time is generally long enough to set the filling; we hate to make you wait that long, but we promise that it’s worth it.

Note: the ooey gooey nature of these bars makes extraction from the pan challenging, so we recommend thoroughly spraying the pan and lining with a foil sling. The sling allows you to easily extricate the bars, so be sure the foil overhangs the two long sides of the pan for easy lifting.

  • Servings: 10 bars
  • Difficulty: 1 hour and 30 minutes
  • Print


  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup almonds or pecans, chopped
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tbsp
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup butterscotch chips
  • ½ cup (4 oz) sweetened condensed milk


1) Spray Suvie pan thoroughly with cooking spray, then line with an aluminum foil sling, ensuring the foil extends over the two long sides of the pan. Spray pan again with cooking spray.


2) In a large bowl, whisk together oats, flour, sugar, almonds, baking soda, and ½ tsp salt. In a second bowl, whisk together melted butter, egg, and vanilla.


3) Add butter mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients, stirring to incorporate. Set aside ¾ cup of the dough mixture for topping.


4) Press remaining dough into the bottom of the prepared Suvie pan.


5) In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat butterscotch chips, sweetened condensed milk, ½ tsp salt, and 1 tbsp butter at 50% power for 1-2 minutes, or until chips are melted, stirring halfway through. Pour butterscotch mixture over the crust and spread into an even layer.


6) Crumble remaining reserved topping evenly over the butterscotch layer.


7) Insert pan into the bottom zone of Suvie, input settings, and cook now or schedule.

Bottom Zone: Slow Cook High for 1 hour

8) Once bars have finished cooking, broil for 5 minutes, or until topping is browned. Watch the topping carefully to ensure it doesn’t burn. To avoid overcooking: do not leave bars unattended during this step!


9) Remove pan from Suvie, transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely to set the butterscotch filling, about 4-6 hours. Run a metal knife around the edges of the pan and then, using the foil sling, lift bars out of the pan. Cut bars into pieces and serve. Enjoy!


Coffee Pairing

There are no wrong choices when pairing coffee with butterscotch. The rich sweetness of the butterscotch will be balanced out by the coffee regardless of what brew you choose. However, if you’re struggling to pick we recommend starting out with Mocha Java.
