cinnamon roll chocolate chip cookie bars

Combining two favorites into one yummy recipe. Cinnamon roll meets chocolate chip cookie dough to make one soft and yummy bar!

Cinnamon roll chocolate chip cookie dough bar recipe that is gluten, grain and dairy free.

We have a confession to make.

We weren’t going to share this recipe. We showed us making it on snapchat (loriandmichelle). And we didn’t think it came out at first…but after a few bites we were sold.

We looked at each other and knew we had to share this with you.

Second confession:we made this recipe with the intent on sharing it with Gary. That didn’t happen. We had a hard time sharing.

We aren’t really sure how we came up with this recipe idea but it was written down in our notebook with a million other recipe ideas. It just sounded like something we would enjoy and we wanted to see if we were right. We basically got a serious craving for chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls. What to do? How about combining the two!

hey ladies! is tigernut flour analogous to any other flour?

We feel you can replace any flour for it, it does absorb water but not like coconut flour.

Oh i have yet to find tiger nut flour here in the UK – but these looks fabulous! Just been trying out your plantain recipes too as I managed to get hold of some and am now obsessed with them!

haha yay for plantains!

Looks delish! I have the tigetnut flour but I can’t do coconut or almond… I don’t digest them well. I’m not sure what else to try in place. If you have any suggestions – do share! I’ll have to search out monk fruit… which I believe is a sweetener so maybe stevia could work in place.

Thanks!

We would suggest doing 2/3 cup tigernut and 1/4 cup chestnut or plantains flour if you want to keep it grain free. Or do 1/4 cup arrowroot or tapioca should work too.

What can we replace the monk fruit with? I looked up monk fruit… Stupid expensive?
I would love to try this recipe but need a sub… Would a fig purée work?

Reply
purelytwins January 8, 2017 - 11:43 pm

You can use any sugar to replace the 2 tbsp monk fruit. Fig puree is a liquid sweetener and might alter the final product.
