Portland Bar Cookies is a 7-layer decadent dessert that many Portland, Oregon natives grew up with.
I’ll never forget the first Portland Bar cookie I tasted at the old Wizer’s market in Lake Oswego, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. Chocolatey deliciousness, with sweet and creamy centers over a buttery graham cracker crust. Who wouldn’t love these?
Similar to the magic bar cookies we all love at Christmas with the addition of butterscotch chips and two kinds of nuts.
While this isn’t the original recipe — it’s a close adaptation and one we absolutely love… anytime of the year!
An easy and delicious bar cookie that’s sweet and amazingly unforgettable.
Portland Bar Cookies
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
15 graham crackers, crushed (2 cups of graham cracker crumbs)
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup pecans (roughly chopped)
1/2 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. With nonstick cooking spray, lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish. Line with parchment paper.
Melt 1 stick of butter and crush graham crackers until finely ground. Combine the butter and crushed graham crackers until combined. Press into the bottom of the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle butterscotch chips over the graham cracker layer. Then drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the top. Finally, sprinkle coconut, chocolate chips, pecans, and walnuts over the top. Press down gently with the back of a spoon.
Bake in a 350ºF oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
