Recipe of the Week: Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

If you love chocolate chip cookies, this recipe is for you! This is one of my favorite sweet treats that I make for special occasions or if I have girlfriends coming over. It is quick, easy, and dare a say a healthy with a small punch of protein and fiber? This recipe comes from Tone It Up and it is amazing!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained (160z)
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I only use 1 cup)
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350 ° degrees. Spray a 9×9 pan with coconut oil spray.
STEP 2: Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor (except for the chocolate chips) and blend until smooth (I used my Ninja!). Add chocolate chips to the batter and mix with a wooden spatula, being careful of the blade. Pour into baking pan and sprinkle with a few more chocolate chips on top.
STEP 3: Bake for 45 to 60 minutes depending on what size dish you are using. You’ll know they are done when the top is slightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow bars to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting.
STEP 4: Try not to eat all of them in one sitting!!!!!!
Enjoy!
