I mentioned in a post last week that I’m doing a bit of a diet regimen in order to lose the last bit of baby weight that’s clinging on for dear life. I’ve cut back on a lot of things and it’s been a little tough, but I’m finally seeing results. Which is both exciting and very motivating. Swimsuit season, here I come!
All that being said, while I’m avoiding sweets for the most part, I haven’t cut them out completely. In my opinion, life is just better with a little butter and sugar. And so I indulge every now and again in something homemade and worthwhile, and I feel really good about it. This last weekend I made a batch of these whole wheat chocolate chip cookie bars and loved every single bite.
These cookie bars are definitely worth breaking a diet for. They’re crisp on the outside and chewy in the center and the whole wheat lends a subtle nuttiness that sets them apart from traditional chocolate chip cookies. The walnuts were a last minute addition and I can’t imagine this dessert without them.
And I better leave it at that, because if I gush anymore about these cookie bars, I’m going to have to bake another batch.
