A “Healthy” Twist to Cinnamon?

I’m not promising these don’t have some calories – but hey, they do have cinnamon in them. And remember my post from yesterday and how “healthy” cinnamon can be!

(by Reeni)
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
1 package butterscotch chips, 11 ounces
1 cup chopped nuts, optional
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 – 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
a dash of salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9x2 baking pan. Line with parchment if desired and lightly grease again.
2. In a large bowl beat the butter, both sugars, and cinnamon together until creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs; beat well.
3. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet mixture 1/3 at a time, beating well after each addition.
4. Stir in butterscotch chips and nuts. Spread in pan.
5. Bake for 30 minutes until center is set and top is golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
6. In a large bowl beat all the ingredients for the cream cheese frosting until light and fluffy about 6-7 minutes.
7. Frost bars and refrigerate an hour or two before slicing. Slice into 1 or 2-inch squares, wiping the knife after each cut if needed. Store in fridge or in a very cool place.
