Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
These bars are extremely simple, vegan, gf, refined sugar free, and taste like the chewiest oatmeal choc chip cookie ever! The dark chocolate in them complements the salt perfectly and the edges get all nice and golden brownnn
These cookie bars are 10/10. I cannot express how amazing these are. They give me flashbacks to way before I was into healthy baking, or baking at all, to when one of my best friend Ryan's mom would make these healthy dark chocolate oatmeal cookies with sea salt.
These cookies were extremely chewy and had dark chocolate and rich seas salt melting out the sides. I took a bite of one of these bars, and it was like I was back in 2015, in my Ryan's kitchen with all my best friends. Those were the days.
