Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These bars require a glass of milk (or almond milk), they are rich and delicious.  My little one said, mom this are just like brownies, but like cookies.  I think that's the perfect description...they have the texture of a brownie, but taste like a rich chocolate chip cookie.  They really are divine!  I made 2 batches in less than 24 hours, because we went through them so fast!  I'm positive you'll love these.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
2 cups coconut sugar
2/3 cup palm oil shortening
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups GF flour blend
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life mini chips)

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream the sugar and shortening together in a mixing bowl.  Add in eggs, one at a time, and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour blend, baking powder, and salt.  Add the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Grease a 9x13 pan.  Spread/press dough into the pan with greased hands (the dough is more like a very thick brownie batter, it's sticky!).  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the bars to cool before cutting and enjoying.

  2. In place of the palm oil shortening, can I use regular shortening? Or butter? I need these to be gluten free. They look great!

    1. Yes, you could use regular shortening, or even try half and half shortening and butter.

    2. Great, thank you so much!
