Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


My blondie-esque chocolate chip cookie bars are gluten-free and made with a natural sugar substitute, maple sugar. And, curve ball, I use cannellini beans in my chocolate chip cookie bars, too. The results are delicious.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup maple sugar
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • one 13.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and dried
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter, melted
  • ½ cup walnuts, crushed
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. Add everything except walnuts and chocolate chips to a high-powered blender, blending on high until well combined. (You can also use a food processor.)
  3. Pour mixture into an 8 x 8 pan.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over the mixture.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Top with coconut kefir and honey if desired.
