Eat Well: The Best Chocolate Chip Sandwich Bars Ever

DSC_8930

Prepare yourself: I'm about to make a big claim. These chocolate chip cookies bars are the best thing I've ever baked. I know - I don't really bake that often. I'm here to argue that I bake just often enough for that claim to mean something. And if you bake these yourself, you'll totally be on my side.

Since I've been an adult, I've been a little resistant to baking. I think it's the perceived girliness of the thing - something in me has always been opposed to doing overly girly things (like loving chick flicks or using Pinterest or writing a fashion blog...oh wait), and baking falls squarely in that category. However, every once in awhile I'll realize that nobody cares if baking is girly...and you get to eat delicious treats afterwards. So once in a blue moon I furtively troll Pinterest for dessert recipes that look amazing.

I followed this recipe to a T, except I didn't use oats in my batter. I actually love chocolate chip oat cookies, but I realized too late that I didn't have the right kind of oats on hand. With or without them, these treats will be amazing - seriously, I can't recommend them highly enough.

I hope you all had a great Monday - mine was surprisingly nice. I went to work dreading a few of the projects I had to tackle, but left feeling happy with the work I'd done and excited for the next day. Doesn't it feel wonderful when that happens? Here's hoping today is just as great.
