Ingredients Needed

  • Almond Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Baking Powder + Baking Soda
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate Chunks

Substitutions

Flours: We haven’t tried this with any other flours. If you do experiment, let us know how it goes!

Coconut Sugar: This can likely be swapped with maple sugar, or even brown sugar, but we don’t recommend swapping it with honey or maple syrup.

Eggs: We haven’t tried this with an egg substitute.

Butter: You can use equal parts room temperature coconut oil.

Chocolate Chips: Want to add in something else, or in addition, to chocolate chips? Go for it. We’re thinking nuts would be good in this!

I love how easy this recipe is! Anytime you only need 1 bowl, a few ingredients and less than 30 minutes to get a sweet treat on the table is a winning recipe to me. To make this recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven and prepare a baking pan! We recommend putting in a parchment sling for easy removal.
  2. Mix together the dry.
  3. Add in the wet.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Transfer to the baking dish, and bake!

Storing Cookie Bars

As with any cookie bar recipe, these are pretty awesome on the day they are made. On day 1, the edges are nice and crispy and the middle is soft. The good news is that they’ll also pretty awesome days later when stored at room temperature or even in the freezer! You can store these in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or the freezer for up to 6 months. Our family loves eating these cold, straight from the freezer, but you can also let it sit at room temperature to warm up for about 20 minutes.

  • Method: Bake
  • Diet: Gluten Free

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
  • Coarse sea salt, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare an 8″ baking dish by greasing it and lining it with a parchment paper sling.
  2. To a large bowl, add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt and combine until it comes all together.
  3. Add in softened butter, egg, vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and place better into the prepared pan. The batter will be fairly thick. Using a spatula press the batter down evenly into the pan and smooth over the top (alternatively, simply wet hands lightly and gently pat the top to smooth it out). Add more chocolate chips, if desired, to the top of the batter.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, 20 minutes for more underbaked-style.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Remove the bars gently from the pan with your parchment sling, and let cool on a rack. 
  7. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt, if desired, then cut into 9 portions and enjoy.

Notes

 

Can sub coconut oil for the butter.

Works with maple sugar or coconut sugar.

  1. Made these for game night with some friends – everyone with different dietary preferences (some gluten & dairy free while other love all the gluten and dairy). These came out great and everyone loved them – I used coconut oil to make the dairy free as well as enjoy life chocolate chips. So good!
