  4. In a food processor or blender, process oats until finely ground.

  5. Transfer ground oats to a medium sized bowl and stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  6. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined. Add flour mixture, in small additions, until well mixed. Stir in butterscotch chips and bacon.

  7. Place heaping tbsp (15 mL) of dough 2” (5 cm) apart on prepared baking sheets.
