Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (Gluten Free)

These chewy and decadent gluten free chocolate chip cookie bars are an awesome gluten free version of an old favorite.

While I’m not saying they never make their way into a lunchbox, but generally due to their sugar content, they are usually reserved for after school or special occasion treats. A ‘sometimes’ food is what we like to call them in our home.

They are seriously delicious though, so enjoy them.

In fact, I have to cut them into extra small squares so that they go a bit further! Plus, I wish I could tell you if they freeze well…. but I’ve never once had any left over to freeze.

I’m sure they would go well after being frozen, however I would suggest freezing them on the same day you bake them for the best results.
