Cookie Butter Bars

There’s something about cookie butter that’s just so addicting. Is it the smooth, creamy texture? The rich, cookie flavor? Or the fact that it’s just so darn easy to eat straight out of the jar? Whatever it is, I can’t get enough of this stuff. I’ve been known to eat it by the spoonful, spread it on my favorite snacks, and definitely bake it into recipes. If you’re not careful, it’s easy to go through a whole jar in one sitting! These Cookie Butter Bars are one of the ways I have put cookie butter into baked goods, and these are some of the most delicious things I have ever tried.

Cookie butter bars
  • They are incredibly tasty.
  • The combination of cookie butter and chocolate chips is irresistible.
  • These are super simple to make
  • They are done in less than 30 minutes
  • You can make them ahead of time and they will last for up to 5 days
  • They are a great way to use up any leftover cookie butter you might have.

Tips for baking these

  • Ensure you do not overbake these, over 25 minutes and they could get too dry.
  • Line the pan with parchment paper so you can easily remove the bars to cut them
  • Store these in an airtight container for up to five days, or freeze them for later.

Different Mix-Ins

There are a few different options that can be used in place of chocolate chips in these cookie bars. You could switch it up and use white chocolate, peanut butter chips, or M&Ms. You could also try dried fruit, chopped nuts, or even toffee pieces are all great substitutes that will add a different flavor to the bars. Whatever you use, make sure to add it at the end of the recipe so that it doesn’t get lost in the batter.
