Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Cookie Bars

Cookie bars are basically chocolate chip cookies in bar form, but are so much easier to make, and don’t require chilling the dough before baking.

These grain-free dark chocolate cookie bars are made with some of my pantry staples. They’re the perfect dessert for Passover or all year round!

These cookie bars are soft-baked with the perfect crisp edges. The combination of both chocolate chips and chunks give them the ultimate ratio of cookie:chocolate.

They’re grain-free and dairy-free, but honestly you’d never guess it!

What you’ll need to make these Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Cookie Bars

This recipe was based off of my chocolate chip cookie bar recipe, with just a few modifications. Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:

  • Almond flour- fine almond flour is my go-to for baking, like this one
  • Tapioca flour- tapioca flour is a starchy flour that’s perfect for most gluten-free baked goods. It helps bind the batter, and adds a crisp to these cookie bars
  • Eggs
  • Coconut sugar
  • Coconut oil- I like to opt for a refined version for a neutral tasting oil
  • Dark chocolate chips and chocolate chunks
  • Flakey sea salt
