Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookie Bars

Soft and chewy, without any inkling of being under-baked. And with the little specs of melted dark chocolate, the sweet undertones of coconut sugar and the slightly nutty flavor of quinoa flour, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a tastier cookie bar.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Beat together softened coconut oil and coconut sugar until creamy. Add flax egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Add flour mixture into wet ingredients in three additions, mixing fully between each. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Cover bowl and chill dough for 1 - 2 hours.
  • With 30 minutes left in the chilling, preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Remove dough from fridge and let sit for 5 minutes. Transfer the dough to the pan, pressing it down until it reaches the edges. Smooth it over with a pasty roller (or your hands), so it’s flat.
  • Bake bars for 20 – 25 minutes until edges are brown and the center still feels a little soft.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on pan for at least 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack (without cutting them) and cool the bars completely. Cut into squares and enjoy!
