Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars


  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, oil, granulated sugar and vanilla.

Add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir until just combined; don't overmix.

Turn dough out into prepared pan, using a spatula or fingers to smash dough into corners. Smooth top lightly with a spatula.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Gently press them into the dough.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes (for crispier sticks, add 2 to 5 minutes to baking time), or just until set in the center; don't overbake because sticks firm up as they cool. Allow to cool completely in pan completely.

Once cool, cut into sticks. Sticks will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
