GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE BARS

Posted on

My daughter requested a “chocolate chip cookie cake” for his 6th birthday party. I found this recipe via Pinterest, and could not have been more pleased.

This is seriously one of the most delicious things I’ve ever baked. My husband says they’re dangerous. I think I agree. We’ll have to only make these when we have people to share with!

All the yummy flavor of my chewy gluten-free chocolate chip cookies in a much easier, quicker bar cookie form!
