Sugar Cookie Bars

Soft frosted sugar cookie bars…

Sugar Cookie Bars

Made from scratch, and iced with my secretly healthy frosting recipe.

These bars are nothing short of holiday magic!

No eggs and no butter are needed for the bars, which can be refined-flour-free as well. They’re like eating a homemade frosted sugar cookie… but even better!

Sugar Cookie Bars


  • 1 1/2 cups spelt flour or white flour (or Bob’s gf plus 1/4 tsp xanthan gum) (130g)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar or xylitol
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • optional, homemade sprinkles


Preheat oven to 325 F, grease an 8×8 pan, and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix very well. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla and milk and oil. (If using coconut oil, it’s always a good idea to gently heat your milk to room temperature first.) Pour dry into wet and mix again. Transfer to the prepared pan, and smooth out. Bake 13 minutes.  They will look very underdone when you take them out, but that’s okay! Just let them cool for at least 10 minutes before touching. If desired, frost with your favorite frosting. (The frosting recipe I used is linked under the first photo in this post.)

      I made a batch of these last night and was planning to bring them to an office holiday lunch today, but they were so good that I ended up eating a few too many last night and had to make a second batch! At least they aren’t difficult to make.

      Thanks for the recipe. It’s keeper!

    do previous pre-orders count? Already pre-ordered and can’t wait for it to come out! btw, these cookie bars look awesome!

  2. Jaclyn says

    That’s so exciting to hear that So Delicious makes cool whip now! I can tolerate some dairy, but I love finding alternatives. These bars look delicious!

  3. Ella R says

    AH I wish you had posted these sooner. I recently made some unhealthy sugar cookie bars for a bake sale, and they were a bit dry. I will definitely try these next time! They sound so delicious. Frosting just makes soft sugar cookies perfect.

  4. Lindsey @ Simply Lindsey says

    I love the idea of sugar cookie bars instead of the cookies. I love the texture of bars so much more!

  5. Victoria says

    damn this looks tasty, cant wait to try 😀 making your crustless chocolate pumpkin pie today! oh and also, this is more in response to yesterdays post about cookies but i think a new gingerbread cookie recipe could be cool!!

    Hi Katie!

    God Bless You for Spreading the Divine Vegan word! Just ordered your new CCK as a Gift. Will So Deicious l be Delivering the New Coco Whip to Canadian book pre- orders, as well?

    Love your site!

    I think I’m probably the only one….but I think the iPhone photos look SO much more delicious than the ‘shopped ones! Although the purple frosting is very enticing despite the fact that I don’t use food coloring ever….

    The only problem is, I can’t see these making up to 16 bars. For me, at the most, it’d be like 9….and I’d still eat two at once!

  8. Michelle T. says

    Hi Katie! Was wondering what kind of sugar you use for your recipes… Regular granulated or can I use organic pure cane?
    Your book is on my xmas wishlist, I hope I get it from the hubby! 🙂

  9. Safina says

    Katie, could you make a recipe for Healthy Gingerbread Men with Healthy Icing to decorate them with? I’ve been looking for a healthy gingerbread men recipe with a lot less butter and sugar. Thanks! 🙂

  10. Karla says

    Hi there,

    I made these bars last night and they turned out AWESOME! I ate my portion with just a little bit of raw honey on top and I completely loved it. Thanks for the recipe Katie!

  11. Maria G. says

    That purple frosting looks cute! Did you use artificial color for that one? Also, is it the tofu-cashew version? It looks so good!
