Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

Wait a second.. Cookie dough thats gluten-free, raw, eggless, dairy-free, AND insanely delicious? Oh yeah. It's possible. 

This simple cookie dough recipe is made with 100% healthy ingredients and it actually tastes like real cookie dough! It is great both when frozen and at room temperature... that is.. if it lasts long enough to get to room temperature. I brought these to my gym (yes, I bring baked goods to my gym!) and they were gone in seconds! They have a melt-in-your-mouth, chewy, chocolate-y flavor and texture that'll leave you wanting to make more.
