We are big cookie people around here but I don't always have the patience to make a big batch of cookies. These Congo Bars are so easy to make and taste just as (or more) delicious as homemade chocolate chip cookies!
Congo Bars Recipe:
2 3/4 c. all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. butter, softened
2 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 package milk chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Combine butter and sugar using a mixer until blended. Add eggs, one at a time to sugar mixture, mixing on low in between each addition. Add vanilla and mix. Add flour and mix until combined. Stir in chips and then pecans.

Coat a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray and spread batter evenly into dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Make sure you don’t over bake.

    I have these in the oven right now! My lil’ guy will be excited about them once he’s home from school. :) I didn’t have any milk chocolate chips on hand, so I made them with semi sweet. No doubt they will still taste amazing!

    Tonight is the second time I have made these for my kids (and me…oh yes…for me, as well) and they are absolutely delicious!
    Thanks for the awesome recipe!

    I plan on making these tonight so my daughter can take these tomorrow for her summer school class. My daughter turned 5 year old today. Thanks for a nice simple quick recipe. I love looking at your blog. :)

    These were delicious. Pretty quick and easy. Nice and soft. I added pecans and walnuts. Will definitely be making these again! Would be delicious heated up with some ice cream on top!

    I had a craving for something sweet and had all the ingredients on hand. They were so quick to make and turned out DELICIOUS! I satisfied my craving and now am left with the rest of the batch! Good thing I halved it because they are going to be all gone very soon!

    I am super excited to try these, I have decided to give up on chocolate chip cookies and try making them into bar, I can make breads, and cakes and other good items, but I just can’t get the chocolate chip cookies right, I hope this works!

      I have the same problem, my choco chippers suckers! However, I made this recipe into cookies – I just dropped them by tablespoons onto the cookie sheet and they came out fabulous…now I have a good recipe for choco chips!
