Eggless cookies

Have you ever had eggless cookies? The edible cookie people love is actually eggless cookies but in dough form. Can I make a bar cookie that is also eggless cookies?

The answer came to me with cake mix cookies. It would be easy to turn the cake mix into eggless cookies!

Cake mix bar cookies

I could have just did a simple cake mix cookie like the Red Velvet Cake Mix Blossoms, but I wanted this to be a bar cookie, like brownies. It made sense that cake mix bar cookies would work for me. Why, well you have seen square cakes with a cake mix so why not a bar cookie!

Caramel bars

I am a huge lover of caramel. So I knew making these bar cookies as caramel bars would be a favorite in my house. Finding the right cake mix to make these caramel bars as eggless cookies was a bit of a lot of experimenting.

I came to find if I use Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil, which helped make the caramel bars taste better than regular vegetable oil. Still, these cake mix bar cookies needed something else.

 

Chocolate caramel

What would go well with caramel? That is easy, chocolate! A chocolate caramel combination is perfect. All I need was a chocolate cake mix! German chocolate proved to be amazing in this chocolate caramel cookie bar recipe. 

When I brought these wonderful chocolate caramel bars to work, my coworkers went crazy over them. They could not believe this was an eggless recipe!
