Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Adapted from King Arthur flour
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ -2 cups brown sugar
2 ¼ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp coffee powder
10 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 ½ -2 cups of chocolate chips or mix of chips and nuts
Melt butter in a large pan. Take off fire.
Add sugar, vanilla essence and stir well. Allow to cool slightly.
Add one egg at a time and beat well.
Add flour, baking powder and coffee powder and stir to combine.
Add chocolate chips and/or nuts and stir.
Line a baking tray (9”x13”) with wax paper and grease lightly. Pour the batter into the pan.
Bake in preheated oven at 160 degree Celsius for 25-30 mins until the tops are set.
If over baked, it becomes too dry. It is better to take out when slightly soft; it will set as it cools.
Cool completely before slicing.
