Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, and Secrets of Eating Well
Serves: yields 24 bars
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the softened butter and brown sugar, until it's uniformly brown. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat well on medium speed to combine (about 1 minute).
  3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. With the stand mixer running on low, add a little at a time to the butter mixture until just incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and mix briefly to combine.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread out into one even layer.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting into 24 bars. Enjoy!
