Vegan Chocolate Chip Bars

Vegan Chocolate Chip Bars

As you have probably noticed I love a good cookie. I like mini cookies, loaded cookies and chocolate cookies. There are times, however, when I don’t feel like making the effort to create individual cookies. My solution is to make cookie bars. I make a quick cookie batter, add it to a greased pan and bake. You can relax or get busy on other kitchen tasks while your bars bake. The resulting vegan chocolate chip bars are delicious.

I originally tried making my mini chocolate chip batter into bars, but the dough was much too wet. I went back to the drawing board and created this recipe from scratch. For texture I added pretzels and pecans. You can of course use whatever add ins you like. Any kind of nut would work here, as would coconut shreds.

I love the salty crunch pretzels add to these bars. Use a thin pretzel in the recipe. Thicker pretzels they will create an odd texture in your bar.

You can cut these as small or large as you like. They make a great item to take to a party or picnic since you can cut them in advance. Leave them in the pan for easy transportation.
