Vegan Chocolate Chip Speculoos Cookie Bars

Sunday, December 22, 2013

These cookie bars are fantastic!! They taste exactly like a cookie but in bar form. They're chewy and the outer layer has a nice crunch to it. I think they'll make the perfect addition to any holiday cookie platter.

These are sneaky cookie bars because they appear to be a classic chocolate chip bar but once you take a bite the spice-y warmth of speculoos (cookie butter) will slowly reveal itself to you and you'll be in love. Speculoos really makes these bars something special...for a special time of year!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Speculoos Cookie Bars 
adapted from the wonderful Connoisseurus Veg

1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. non-dairy milk 
2 tbsp. ground flax seed
10 tbsp. vegan margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup smooth cookie butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour (half all purpose, half soft whole wheat)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 10-12 oz. bag vegan chocolate chips like Enjoy Life chocolate chunks

Mix flax with milk and let stand until thickened. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9x13 inch pan. In a large bowl sift together flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. 
Meanwhile, in a sauce pan over med-low heat melt the margarine and sugar. Once those two are completely melted remove from heat and add the cookie butter, vanilla and flax mixture. 
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined then fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread into the pan and bake for 25 mins.
