Healthy Chocolate Cookie Bars are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free and vegan soft and chewy chocolate cookie bars. I’m obsessed with this recipe!
This recipe is based off my Brownie Cookies recipe. Since making this brownie cookies about million times I decided I wanted to make them into something new, thus, the healthy chocolate cookie bars are born.
After a number of technical difficulties with the blog this past week I believe we’re back in business! Apologies to anyone this affected if you couldn’t get to the recipes you wanted or needed. Fingers crossed I have solved all the problems and we can get back to the delicious treats.
These are the easiest cookie bars imaginable. Just a bowl and spoon is required. Even if you aren’t gluten free, I recommend using a gluten free flour mix for these as the gluten free flour gives these cookie bars such a unique and melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Think of a soft and chewy shortbread. So a soft cookie bar that when it hits your tongue starts to melt.
Trust me! You want that texture.
