Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I came across a photo of cookie bars on the internet the other day and decided to give them a whirl. All I can say is, what a revelation – minimum ingredients, no fussing around shaping them and you end up with delicious fail-safe cookies, whipped up in a maximum of half an hour. So, next time you have friends over and think you need to nip to the shops to get some cookies, think again!

These will be perfect for today’s picnic on Olympic Torch Day. We’re having a whole school trip (plus parents) to watch the Olympic Torch relay go past which is going to be an historic, if fleeting moment. It’s very exciting, and it means the games are getting closer…. roll on The London Olympics ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Your dessert recipes are going to be the end of me being a thin vegan…… I have to make this. Like now.

      1. And showing others that desserts can be delicious without eggs and dairy. I made a different version over the weekend because I forgot about these. Now I need to try yours! I love that it has cocoa powder added in!

  2. How did you know I was craving chocolate? ๐Ÿ™‚
    These bars look seriously tasty, and I love the simplicity of the ingredients.
