Oatmeal Chip Bars

This recipe is from the Penzeys Fall 2011 catalog. I thought I'd give it a try since I've been wanting to make chocolate chip cookie bars for awhile now.  So far, they smell good in the oven. I hope everyone at work enjoys them tonight!

Oatmeal Chip Bars
1 C room temp butter
1 1/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C white sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2 C flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 C oats (regular or quick-cooking)
3/4 C chocolate chips
3/4 C butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Gradually add to creamed mixture.
Mix in oats and chips last.
Spread in a 9x13 pyrex or similar dish.  Bake for 25ish minutes.**
