Don’t Forget The Chocolate Chips

My favorite chocolate chips, that I use almost exclusively in my own recipes, are Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed I love to add mini chocolate chips to recipes, both for taste and presentation.

Just look at these gorgeous Brownie Batter Bars!

It’s much easier to spread mini chips out evenly in baked goods so you get chocolate in every single bite, whereas with larger chocolate chips you might get one bite with chocolate and then another with no chocolate at all.

People often write in to ask me how I can eat chocolate chips as a vegan.

The Enjoy Life chips I recommended above actually are vegan, non-GMO, and free from 14 common allergens, including gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, and nuts. (They also come in Semi-Sweet Mega Chunks and Dark Chocolate Morsels.) You can find the brand in many regular grocery stores or online.

Breakfast On The Go

Of the thousands of recipes I’ve posted here on the blog, my mom will tell you that these breakfast squares are her all-time favorite.

She calls them “boatmeal” (for baked oatmeal) and will often text me on the weekend that she’s made another batch to take into work every morning during the week.

Because leftovers freeze well, you can easily plan ahead and freeze whatever you aren’t going to eat within 4-5 days, to keep an instant healthy breakfast on hand for rushed mornings or any time you don’t feel like cooking.

    I use chocolate chips in brownies, peanut butter balls, oatmeal balls, out if the bag. (Out of the bag is my favorite!)

  2. Tricia Wassel says

    So many things I would do with these. Chocolate chip bars, add to pancakes, brownies, chocolate chip cheesecake, the list never ends. I don’t know when the giveaway ended, but would love to be added if there is a new giveaway. And I love your recipes!!! I can’t wait to try this one. Love the coconut ice cream, keto cheesecake.

  3. Kierstyn B. says

    When you store these bars in the freezer, do they come out ready to eat or should they be left out to thaw or something?

  4. Brandy says

    Have you tried sweetening with chopped dates or date paste instead of agave or stevia?
    I would use the chocolate chips in cookies, blondies and cookie dough ice cream!

  5. M. says

    I would love to eat the chips as is or add to baked or unbaked goodies. I think Kate’s recipes are just amazing. I would so appreciate getting the chocolate chips. Thank you.
