Change your perspective, change your life!
While, yes, this motto can be applied to this recipe (somehow presenting a chocolate chip cookie in bar form makes it seem like a completely new and exciting dessert), I think it has even greater impact when applied to life in general.
I think it's particularly needed lately.
If only all of the xenophobic, racist, sexist, classist, white supremacist people in the world would take a moment to change their perspective, we would be on our way to a better world.
This recipe won't change the world, but maybe it can put a little smile on your face knowing it comes with a special message of love and peace...and because it tastes good.
