Oatmeal Brookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A delicious oatmeal scotchie covering a fudgy brownie!

Are you made at me for not posting in a long time? Don’t be.  I was on vacation.  And then I was taking a nap.  Like a lot of naps.  Sleeping is good for the soul and the body.  And so are these brookies.  If you are not familiar with the term brookie, think of it as a brownie and a cookie, but in a bar form.  This brookie is the classic oatmeal butterscotch on top of a brownie.  I mailed them to my friend Ellie who is hanging out off the grid this summer.  The only problem with mailing these was that I sent her most of the pan and didn’t get to eat many of them myself.  But the few that I kept with me were amazing.
