Recipe FAQs

Do I have to use olive oil?

No you can use coconut oil, but you will taste coconut in your cookie bars. You can also use avocado oil.

If I use coconut oil, how do I measure it?

Measure it in it’s melted state. I usually put a large spoonful into a microwave safe bowl, then microwave it. And then I pour the melted coconut oil into a measuring cup.

How Do I store these cookie bars?

You can store these in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week (if they last that long).

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix with a fork until blended. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl, whisk the oil and coconut sugar together. Then, add in the egg and egg yolk and whisk until creamy. Add the vanilla to the bowl and whisk again.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix together with a fork until well mixed. Fold in the chocolate chips. I personally like using a mixture of chocolate chunks and mini chocolate chips because this gives various amounts of chocolate in each bite.
  • Pour the cookie dough into the lined baking pan and evenly press/smooth it into an even layer. ( I used a rubber spatula to do so)
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly browned on the sides, and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • When you take the bars out of the oven, put the pan on top of a wire rack to cool for about an hour. Lift the bars out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut into 16 squares. 
  • ( Note: If you don’t want to wait an hour to eat these you could wait 15 minutes before cutting them and eat them while they are warm )
  • You can store these in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week (if they last that long).

Notes

  • Instead of tapioca flour, you can use arrowroot flour.
  • Instead of olive oil, you can use avocado oil or coconut oil. Measure the coconut oil in its melted state.
  • Instead of coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar. Just know brown sugar is not Paleo.
