Chocolate caramel gooey bars is a sinfully delicious chocolate cookie bar treat that will not be able to stop eating. The best part is they are semi-healthy with no eggs and it uses Barlean’s butter flavored coconut Oil.
It is CHOCTOBER time again! I took part in this last year with my recipes: Fall Apple Salad With Chocolate Vinaigrette, Peanut Butter Dream Brownies, and Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookie Bars. So when the opportunity came to be in this wonderful event sponsored by The PinterTest Kitchen and Imperial Sugar, I quickly jumped at the chance. I love this event and it really helps me get creative with this chocolate themed event.
I received a package from Barlean’s that contained this butter flavored coconut oil for this event to develop recipes. I know coconut oil is healthy for you. I also know it is a good substitute for butter.
I admit I never baked with it before. I used coconut oil for oil pulling, don’t laugh. I read it could improve oral health, so I gave it a try, I saw improvement, but it too much to do every day for 20 minutes a day.
I have had this recipe that I acquired. It was a clipping from a newspaper stuffed in an old church cookbook I got at an estate sale. It really sounded simple but it had steps in it that I knew there are shortcuts for those steps, like using caramel ice cream sauce instead of making your own.

I took what could have been a time-consuming recipe and made it a little quicker to make. What impressed me with this recipe it was egg free. So substituting the Barlean’s Butter flavored coconut oil for melted butter would work well with this recipe.

I admit I use my work to test out many of my recipes, these were a huge hit. In fact, I was told by one the girls, who is new, “I am going to get fat if you do this all the time, these are so good, I can’t quit eating them.” Well, I joked, That is my plan, I want to make you all fat, so I look skinny! All seriousness, these turned out very well and is perfect for me to kick off my #CHOCTOBERFEST recipes.
