Description

Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie Bars: a simple vegan and gluten-free recipe for the deliciously chewy, super-chunky chocolate chip cookie bars.


Ingredients

Scale

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted, natural nut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¼ cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Add-in Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: coconut oil, nut butter, maple syrup, sugar and vanilla.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: oats, flour, flax, cinnamon, walnuts and salt.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Stir together until well-incorporated. I like to fold the mixture together with a rubber spatula. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour this mixture into your baking pan. Using a rubber spatula, spread into an even layer.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Keep in mind that the bars will harden as they cool.
  7. Allow to cool on a cooling rack. Slice into 16 bars. Enjoy!

Notes

– Store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
– You can easily swap out the nuts for another ingredient, like cacao nibs or dried fruit. 🙂
