Breakfast Bars: Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Bars {Gluten-free}

chocolate chunk cookie bars gluten free

I’ve been dying to get my hands on some coconut flour.  It’s hard to come by here. A friend told of me of a place where I could get it, so I immediately went out looking for this vegetarian restaurant slash health food products store.  I sat in traffic, rushed through my errands and finally saw the light of heaven shining upon this store :).  But it was closed.  I was so annoyed. It was in the middle of the day who closes a store in the middle of the day.

Anyways, I tried my luck one more time and it was open.  I bought some coconut flour but unfortunately, she said they were out of coconut oil.  I guess I’ll have to make another trip.

I immediately got home and baked. I tried my first batch of chocolate bars, they were okay but I knew it was missing something. I wasn’t sure but after playing around with the recipe I found a winner. I quickly realized that coconut flour makes my recipes a bit more crumbly but I was surprised with how well these bars held up together.  I could pick them up with my fingers without it becoming a crumbly mess.

Here’s my winner recipe for my breakfast bars Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Bars {grain-free} made from coconut flour. I definitely would say these bars fall under the “healthier” or “skinny” recipe category. The flaxseed, oats, coconut flour and oil are all good for ya ingredients and it only uses 1/3 cup of brown sugar or you can use honey.  I did make them with honey the first time around and it definitely changed the flavor. They are still good but not as yummy as they were with brown sugar.
