The most common thing I hear from people who are getting started with a healthier lifestyle is, “That means I can’t have sweets!” That statement is a myth for sure! When it comes to eating healthy, it’s all about moderation! 

While you do not want cookies being 90% of your diet, it is okay to have them! Even better when you use whole ingredients, which is what I am going to show you today!

These chocolate chip cookie bars are paleo-friendly, vegan friendly, and there’s no refined sugar! By using a mixture of coconut and almond flour, we make these gluten-free but they still have the texture of a fresh-baked gooey cookie!

Tips for Making

  • Don’t forget to line your pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • You will want to get them in an airtight container as soon as they cool so they don’t dry out. If they start drying out they will lose that moist, fudgy texture.
  • As a variation, you can add up to 1 cup of nuts for an extra crunch!

Can You Make a Double Batch of Cookie Bars? 

Yes! If you want to make a double batch of bars, just double the ingredients and use a 9×13 baking pan instead!

Don’t forget to line and/or grease it to keep them from sticking.

Instructions for Freezing 

Follow the instructions for baking the bars, then let them cool completely. Place them in a freezer-friendly container in single layers, using parchment or freezer if needed to separate layers.
