This weeks guest recipe post is from my friend Nadia!  I have been following Nadia on Instagram for nearly a year and her recipes make me salivate every time she posts.  She has a way of making super healthy meals look elegant and delicious, and such a balance in the way she cooks which I love.  Make sure to check her out on Instagram, and her fabulous blog to see more recipes like this. She was sweet enough to share a Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Recipe with me today.  These babies are gluten, diary, and refined sugar free!

A little note from Nadia

Simply put, I live for food. Now I know that sounds dramatic, but cooking/eating is my biggest passion in life. Growing up multicultural (Mexican mother & Syrian/French father, raised in Mexico, lived in France and finally the US) really developed my love for food and cooking style. I started my blog and Instagram account about a year ago to share my food point of view with the world. I used to be a restaurant chef, who fell in love with healthy living so most of the recipes I create will have a healthy twist to them, but I will share indulgent eats here and there because I am all about living a truly balanced life. Plus, what’s life without good wine and dessert, right?

Now more about these crazy good chocolate chip bars. I have 2 cookie monsters at home, so this was created with them in mind. I am pleased to report that my husband (basically healthy food hater) was a fan, he ate ½ the batch by himself and actually asked for more, Aleluya!

A really good tip here is that if you don’t have oat flour, it is really easy to make. For this recipe, I actually just blended 1 ¾ cup of gluten free oats until it was fine enough to look like flour. Another thing I will add, is that I use the KAL brand of liquid stevia because it is the one that tastes best to me, but feel free to use whichever one you have. You can also use any chocolate chips you want, I use the Lily’s brand because they are sweetened with stevia.

    Those look delicious! And I’m impressed by how despite being gluten-free- they don’t appear to be dry and crumbly. Saving this recipe for later! Thank you for sharing.
