A simple recipe for those who want to make chocolate chip cookies without the hassle of dropping batter into individual cookies. These buttery, chewy bar cookies are totally scrumptious... Make them with or without the coconut and/or nuts. If desired, substitute white, milk chocolate, bittersweet, or peanut butter chips for the semisweet chips called for in the recipe.
I followed the recipe omitting the coconut and egg yolk. I was surprised at the batter (appeared too little for the pan and overly greasy), however, they baked up beautifully. Toasted coconut was a nice recommendation.
These are amazing!! I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose for just a little more fiber/protein. Baked for 25 minutes. Came out PERFECT! Will be making these again and again and again . . .
