Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Meets Maple Blondies!
When you can’t decipher if it’s a cookie bar or a blondie bar, you just fuse them together into one! Introducing –> Maple Chocolate Chip Cookie Blondie Bars, the love child of a cookie bar and a blondie.
We’re huge dessert fans here at Fit Foodie Finds and sometimes they deserve to be made with the good stuff:
These bars are a spin-off of my mom’s famous cookie bars, but I of course made them a little more Fit Foodie, but removing some sugar and swapping it with maple syrup for that warm, rich flavor.
Why you’ll love it!
Serves a crowd
Sweet and chocolatey
Easy to make
Flour: flour is the main ingredient in this recipe. We haven’t tested it with anything other than all-purpose because that’s how my mom makes them.
Butter: butter is used as the fat and really adds that yummy cookie bar flavor.
Brown sugar: light brown sugar is what makes these more of a blondie.
Chocolate chips: what would a cookie blondie bar be without chocolate chips?
Maple syrup: I subbed out a full cup of brown sugar and used 1/2 cup of maple syrup from my mom’s original recipe to give them a warmer flavor and less sugar.
Eggs: eggs are used to bind all ingredients together.
Mix dry: combine, flour baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
Cream butter and sugar: use a stand mixer to cream the butter and brown sugar. Then, add maple syrup and vanilla and mix again. Slowly add the eggs and mix.
Combine: add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until combined. Finally, add in chocolate chips.
Transfer and Bake: transfer the batter into a greased 9×12-inch pan and bake at 350ºF for 20-25 minutes or until the top begins to brown.
Cool and Slice: let blondie bars cool completely before slicing into diamond shapes and serving.
Store blondie bars in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days. For best results, store them in the fridge.
To freeze: slice bars and then separate them out onto a baking sheet so they aren’t touching. Freeze for 30 minutes. Once they are partially frozen, transfer them into an airtight container or gallon-size plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
