Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Years ago, before any special ingredients came out from Trim Healthy Mama I created a recipe for chocolate chip cookie bars. They were very well received, but I wanted to give them an update with some new ingredients. These cookies made my husbands eyes light up! Chocolate chip cookie bars are his favorite and he was very happy with the way these turned out! If you want to try the original version I will include that recipe in the notes below.
These cookies are delicious the first day they are made, but like most THM baked goods they are even BETTER the next day! I am so excited to have this recipe re-vamped for you!

- Xes sweetener or gentle sweet
- THM Super Sweet
- black strap molasses
- butter softened
- vanilla extract
- caramel extract optional
- THM baking blend

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together butter, sweeteners and molasses.

Add vanilla and caramel extracts and mix thoroughly.
Add all dry ingredients except chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread batter in a greased 9×13 pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. (Begin checking at 20 minutes so that they do not overbake.)

For individual cookies, drop batter by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Original Recipe (No Special Ingredients):
3/4 cup THM brown sugar (if you don’t have this already made up you can just use 3/4 cup erythritol or xylitol and add 1/2 tsp molasses and 1/8 tsp maple or butterscotch extract to your recipe. For the recipe to make brown sugar to have on hand please visit Gwen’s Nest.)
1-2 tsp pure stevia extract (Like THM brand. Your batter should be sweeter than you think the finished product should be because the sweetness will lessen when you bake them.)

1/2 tsp caramel extract
1/2 cup almond flour
3/4 cup oat fiber
1/4 c whey protein powder
