These cookie bars are SO decadent, but pretty healthy! I like to have an arsenal of healthier baked goods to make at home when we want something sweet. And while these are better than some huge pre-packaged muffin or cookie, they’ll still leave you feeling satisfied. Plus…chocolate and butterscotch are never bad ideas.
