Chocolate chip cookie dough bars

School is almost out, and this is one of our favorite healthier snacks we have on repeat. It can also make a delicious dessert for those special occasions too! 

I don't know about you, but I feel like I become a restaurant during the school holidays, with requests for food on the hour. This is a healthy snack I can make ahead of time, refrigerate and my kids can pull out to enjoy any time of day to fullfill those cravings. 

Note, it does melt so be sure to keep refrigerated until ready to consume, or it can get a little messy), these cookie dough bars are so easy to make and don’t require baking.


Cookie dough:

3/4 cup almond flour

3/4 cup oat flour

1/4 cup maple syrup
