These vegan chocolate chip cookie bars are a perfect dessert if you can’t decide between cookies and brownies! This is actually a very special recipe by my lovely assistant, Molly. If you don’t know, Molly has been working with me since early 2019 and in our recent YouTube video, linked below, Molly picked recipes for me for a full day of eating! I was so happy with the recipes she shared that I wanted to feature them here so you can all try them yourselves. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Vegan Cookie Bars Recipe

Hi guys, it’s me, Molly. This recipe came about from a frequent activity I call “freestyle baking”.  When I am craving something sweet, I will feel inspired by whatever I see in the kitchen and create a new recipe I have never had before. It often ranges from cookies or a loaf. This time, I created a hybrid version of the classic blondies and chocolate chip cookies. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Are there other ways to make it? I encourage you to add any of your preferred mix-ins, my favourites are chopped chocolate-covered pretzels, peanut butter swirl, or anything you happen to have and you want to add to the freestyle.

This is a simple vegan dessert recipe that I hope you’ll really love!

Vegan Cookie Bars

Chocolate chip cookies were one of the first recipes I learned to cook. The inspiration came from my mother who was not so gifted baking and my father who enjoyed snacking on sweets with me in the afternoons. One day, I had a sweet tooth craving and I couldn’t decide if I wanted chocolate chip cookies or brownies, so I came up with these chocolate chip cookie bars. A no-fail unique sweet treat.

This recipe is so easy to make, mix the butter and sugar, add vegan egg and vanilla, mix the dry ingredients then fold in the chocolate chips. Finally pour evenly in a loaf pan and bake until golden and done. Slice and enjoy!

How many servings does this make?

This recipe makes about 8-10 cookie bars, but you can easily double or even triple the recipe and bake it in a larger dish.

Can I make it ahead of time?

You can make the cookie dough batter a day or 2 beforehand, cover and leave it in the fridge until ready to bake. After baking, these will last tightly wrapped in the fridge for up to 4 days.

  • Blondies are my go-to, used to be the only thing I made in the kitchen as a teenager. I am eager to try these as they seem a bit different than blondies! Curious about the egg replacer, too. In baking, I have always substituted 1/4cup applesauce for an egg. Thanks Molly!
