These gluten free cookie bars are just the best.

A chocolate chip cookie taste with a brownie texture…what could be better?

Cookie bars are one of my favorite recipes to make. 

These gluten free cookie bars are incredibly moist, full of flavor, and healthy enough to eat for a snack!

How to make gluten free cookie bars

Beat peanut butter, melted coconut oil, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl until well combined.

Add eggs to the batter and beat well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: baking soda, salt, coconut flour, oat flour, and rolled oats

Add dry ingredients to wet and mix together.

Fold in the chocolate chips

Grease a 13 X 9 casserole dish and pour in the batter.

Use a spatula to flatten out the bars evenly into the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or just as a snack!

These are protein packed and full of feel good ingredients.

While I personally don’t have a gluten intolerance, I enjoy creating recipes that my gluten-free readers can enjoy.

I’ve also noticed that gluten-free desserts tend to make me feel better and are lighter in general.

So good that it tasted like a fancy dessert you might order at your favorite restaurant!

I feel like a lot of gluten free recipes tend to get a bad rap.

I have definitely tasted some bland or texturally-challenged recipes.

It can be difficult to get the texture right when baking without gluten.

I’ve sort of made it my mission to make a good collection of gluten free recipes for everyone to enjoy.

I even wrote a roundup of 25 gluten free dairy free desserts that I have personally made and loved!

These bars are made with oat flour, coconut flour, and rolled oats.

Peanut butter holds it all together and adds protein too.

I use all natural peanut butter in this recipe, and it’s the only kind I buy.

If you are looking to buy healthy peanut butter, just be sure the ingredient label only has two ingredients: peanuts and salt.

Need any more convincing? Don’t walk but RUN to make these.

Even my picky toddler that eats practically nothing laughed out loud and danced when he tasted one of these.

SO. GOOD.

These are so good I want to eat the whole pan! Do you know the nutrition facts? Do they need to be refrigerated?

So glad you enjoyed the recipe! I don't provide nutritional info (yet!), but you can calculate it online. I do refrigerate mine for longer keeping, but they will last a few days at room temperature!

Hi, Any ideas on what I can substitute in place of the oat flour? Thank you!!

If you can't find oat flour, you can make it! All you have to do is grind up gluten free oats in a blender!

Hi Laura: I just made these and they are amazing. Thanks for the great recipe. I have to be so careful with gluten and also with lactose that I appreciate a good recipe I can work with. I did a few additions and they turned out great! Didn't have any coconut flour so used 1 cup oat flour and also used Quaker gluten free oats instead of rolled oats, can't be too careful. Also added 1/2 cup organic applesauce and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and used dark chocolate morsels (no milk solids) instead of chocolate chips. Since I already know how bad gluten free stuff is to fall apart after baking, I added 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum to the dry mixture. I made these for my neighborhood poker game and expect rave reviews tomorrow night. I am on my way to get some vanilla So Delicious coconut milk ice cream at the Natural Grocery store for topping.
