Quick Cookie Bars



 I love to bake and chocolate chip cookies are the boy’s favorite.

Lately, I feel like I have had no extra time to do ANY baking and when I do, I’m interrupted constantly and for some reason, they just don’t come out as well as they should.  You think it has to do with having 4 active boys around?  I needed to figure out a chocolate chip cookie in a bar.  A recipe I could just quickly mix up and throw in a pan.

During the past few weeks, I have tried two different cookie bar recipes.  They were either really greasy on the bottom or very dry and the kids didn’t like them.  Today I decided to make my own up and they turned out pretty good!  I was shocked! Ha!

Quick Cookies Bars

Step 1:
Dump all of the following ingredients into a bowl and mix it all up. 

I told you I wanted easy :-)!

½ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup melted butter
2 eggs
1 ½ tsp vanilla

Step 2:
Mix in the following:

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup chopped pecans

Step 3:
Place it all in an 8×8 pan sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake for 25-30 min at 350 degrees.
Let it cool and cut them into bars and your done!

These are so easy!!!

If you have any quick one pan cookie bars that you make, I’d love to hear about them.

Have a great week and thanks Mandy for having me!!!
