Ooey Goey Chocolate Cookie Bars

Hi. My name is Anneka Schneider, and I'm a sugar addict. I have since grown up from the typical college addictions like drinking and partying. Now, its all about the sugar. Its both my friend and my enemy, but I did this for you my friends. That's my excuse at least.

The mind of an addict is always thinking of different ways to ingest the drug of choice. In this case, I couldn't just do a simple cookie. I had to do a cookie bar with an ooey gooey layer on top. The chocolate cookie layer is the Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Post Punk Kitchen. I just cut the recipe in half, omitted the chocolate chips, and pressed it into my Perfect Brownie Pan. Ever seen it on TV? Its the brownie pan with a grid to make perfect squares. Well, I didn't use the grid, but I like that the bottom is detachable so that I can easily lift it out of the pan. The top layer is made of peanut butter but tastes a lot like caramel. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Chocolate Cookie Layer
6 Tbs safflower, peanut, or coconut oil
1 cup sugar
1 ts vanilla
2 ts whole or ground flax seeds
1/4 cup soy, almond, or rice milk
1 cup all purp or flour or white whole wheat
6 Tb cocoa powder
1/2 ts baking soda
1/4 ts salt

Blend milk and flax in a blender for 30 seconds or so. Set aside.

In a large bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

In a seperate large bowl cream together oil and sugar. Add the flax seed/soy milk mixture and mix well. Add the vanilla.

Pour wet mixture into the dry ingredients and beat until everything is incorporated. 

Press into a lightly oiled 11x7 in brownie pan.

Ooey Goey Layer
1 cup pb
1 cup sugar
1 ts vanilla
1/2 cup almond, soy or rice milk

Beat ingredients till smooth. Mixture will be thick. Pour onto the cookie layer and spread evenly, being careful not to break up the cookie.

Bake for 35 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.

  5. Nicole, thank you again for all your support. How did the bridal shower go? I highly recommend all the baked goods on Post Punk Kitchen. They are amazing and don't use ingredients people don't have.
