  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and line an 8X8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
  •  In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix the butter and both sugars until well combined and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until combined. 
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. 
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and evenly spread it out. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center, comes out clean. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into pieces.


  • STORE - Store in an air-tight container for up to one week.
  • FREEZE - Transfer cooled cookie bars {preferably pre-cut into squares} to an airtight container or freezer-safe zip-top bag. Line layers with wax or parchment paper, if needed. Freeze for up to 3 months.
