Heyyy everyone! It’s been a while, and I’ve missed you! To make up for it, I’ve created something spectacular for you all to dig into. Everyone says they’re amazing. BUT, you can never fully trust people, so you better make these for yourself… 😉
Introducing: Chocolate Chip Cookie-Hazelnut Squares!!!! Yup, they’re 100% as insanely delicious as they sound. Just imagine a giant chocolate chip cookie topped with chocolate hazelnut butter, peanut butter cups, and roasted almonds, then cut into bite-sized squares. Uhhh… Yes, please! These cookie bars taste like a cross between a chocolate chip cookie, a brownie, and, well, a peanut butter cup. 🙂
To create these divine treats, I used my favorite products from Justin’s: their peanut butter cups and chocolate hazelnut butter. Justin’s makes the yummiest nut butters and peanut butter cups out there, so I knew I had to use them in a recipe.
A quick note: these treats are vegan, gluten-free and grain-free but they are not Paleo (they contain legumes and refined sugar.) So, I’ve created a Paleo option for you as well!!! To make these free of legumes and sugar, simply swap out the Justin’s butter for this chocolate hazelnut butter on my site, and the cups for these almond butter cups on my site. Voila!!
These chocolate chip cookie bites are such a treat to enjoy, and I’m sure you will all love them. The recipe yields a lot of bars because they are quite chocolaty and sweet (YUM!) so they can feed many people. I hope you enjoy these! Make sure to tag me if you make them @goodiesagainstthegrain on Insta, or leave a comment below this post. Have a great day everyone!
