Crazy addictive chocolate chip cookie bars... like the lovechild of a chocolate chip cookie and a blueberry pie! Recipe link: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2015/08/13/chocolate-chip-blueberry-bars-flourless/

Gooey chocolate chip cookie bars filled with melty chocolate chips and sweet blueberries –  Blueberry lovers will go crazy for these!

And they’re the perfect healthy snack for back-to-school!

Pack the bars into a lunchbox, or serve with a cold glass of almond milk for a wholesome after-school snack. They’re also great for summer barbecues or picnics; summer is not over yet! And you can put your own spin on the recipe by using whatever fruit you have on hand—fresh raspberries, strawberries, or cherries would all work nicely here.

These soft chocolate chip blueberry bars are oil-free and give you an option to make them both gluten-free and flourless if you use almond meal or oat flour (rolled oats pulsed in a food processor until they achieve a flour-like texture).

You also have the choice of using almond butter or sunbutter instead of peanut butter here, making the chocolate chip blueberry bars perfect for peanut-free environments or for people with nut allergies.

Chocolate Chip Blueberry Bars – With A Flourless Option

Total Time: 20m
Yield: 12-16 bars
Print This Recipe 5/5

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup almond butter OR sunbutter
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, optional
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp flour – you can use spelt, white, sorghum, oat, almond meal, even or buckwheat (50g)
  • loosely packed 2/3 cup (60g) brown sugar or coconut sugar – I like Wholesome! Organic Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • loosely packed 2/3 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (90g)
  • additional 2 tbsp blueberries
  • chocolate chips if desired in the batter, plus 1-3 tbsp for the top
  • up to 2 tbsp milk of choice, only if needed

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 F, line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, and set aside. In a bowl, gently heat your almond butter if it’s not already stir-able. Stir in the applesauce and vanilla, and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, salt, flour, sugar, and chocolate chips if desired. Pour dry into wet and keep stirring—it will seem dry at first, so you’ll need to break up the nut butter and stop occasionally to scrape it off the spoon. Only if needed, slowly add up to 2 tbsp milk of choice while stirring. Don’t add extra milk; it eventually will get gooey like cookie dough. Add 2/3 cup blueberries and stir very gently so you don’t break the berries. Transfer batter to the prepared pan, smooth down evenly with a spatula or spoon, and press the remaining 2 tbsp blueberries + 1-3 tbsp chocolate chips into the top for presentation. Bake 15 minutes, then let sit at least 20 minutes, during which time they will firm up considerably. They also firm up even more if you let them sit overnight. Due to the perishable nature of the berries, leftovers should be stored in the fridge or freezer after a day.

    Looks amazing!!! Also double yay! So glad to see a recipe without artificial sugars/stevia! I know you always provide the option of traditional sugars including coconut sugar but its just so nice to see a recipe and nutritional content without it!

    • amanda says

      Stevia is actually not an artificial sweetener. I’ve never seen Katie’s posts call for artitifical sweeteners but maybe I am wrong? But I agree that I like when unrefined sugars are given as an option. I didn’t know about coconut sugar until I read this blog and now I use it all the time!

      • sanaz says

        Xylitol is listed in a bunch of the recipes. Like I said, she always gives options but its so nice to have a recipe that needs zero tweaking 🙂

        • Chocolate Covered Katie says

          Hi Sanaz,
          Xylitol is actually not an artificial sweetener; I’m not a fan of artificial sweeteners, and you won’t find them in any of my recipes. 🙂 But if you want to stay away from xylitol too, regular sugar or coconut sugar are always listed as options in the recipes and can be used in a 1-to-1 ratio for xylitol. Hope that helps!

    I just so happened to have fresh blueberries on hand and was thinking of ways to use them up. Opened my email and VOILA! Fate? I decided it was and now I am happily eating a gooey chocolatey snack. It was a good decision 🙂

  3. Amanda says

    I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the massive amount of fresh blueberries I just got. I think I have an answer! I can’t wait to try these!

  4. Lucie says

    These bars look so amazing Katie! I love blueberries and I can’t wait to make the almond packed version of these! Thanks for always listing so many alternative ingredients, it makes it so much easier!

  5. halfnews says

    Just made this for dessert (I used tahini since I didn’t have almond butter) and served it with freshly whipped cream. Delicious!

  6. Iris says

    Oh my… YUM! I just made these with fresh figs in place of the blueberries for I wanted something that was a fig and chocolate combo. Perfect beyond expectation!

    Thank you!

  7. Thunderbuns says

    Ohhh!! These pictures are so good, I’m going to have to try these. I don’t have a ton of blueberries at the moment, but plenty of raspberries, so hopefully that works alright:)

  8. Navie says

    OMG!!! Made these over the weekend and they were all gone in 2 days. Super easy and super delicious. They literally melt in your mouth.

  9. Lisa B says

    The new design is awesome especially for someone on mobile (which I do almost all of the time). Just a quick question, when I went on the site I didn’t see the most current post. Wi you have that in the future?

  10. Courtney says

    I finally made these and they are fantastic! I used cashew butter because that’s what I had on hand, but it worked well. Thank you for your delicious recipes! 🙂
