Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are loaded with peanut butter and gooey chocolate chips. Soft cookie bars with peanut butter and chocolate for a dessert everyone will enjoy. Made gluten free and refined sugar-free.
Best combo ever!
There’s no surprise here that I am a huge fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combination so it was obvious to me I had to make yet another peanut butter and chocolate bar recipe. I currently have a few here on the blog and they are all very different. My previous ones are super dense and fudgy–almost brownie like. These cookie bars however, have more of crisp to them and they serve a larger crowd!
I used a cookie sheet pan for this recipe, pressing the dough into a thin even layer. For a denser and more chewy cookie bar, use a small pan to create a thicker layer. Undercook the bars slightly so the center is still gooey!
What I used in the cookie bars…
peanut butter – duh!
zero calorie brown sugar -yes, that exists!
zero calorie granulated sweetener – more excited stuff!
gluten free baking flour
vanilla, salt, baking powder
flaked sea salt
I know, more than likely you don’t have zero calorie brown sugar on hand and that’s okay, substituting with coconut sugar also work!
