These copycat cookie bars are a dead ringer for some popular treats at a large coffee chain. Best of all, they have less than half the calories and fat of the originals - with an even better flavor! These chewy delights have cranberries and white chocolate chips inside, and are topped with a low-sugar cream cheese frosting, chopped dried low-sugar cranberries and a drizzle of melted white chocolate. They're sweet, but not ridiculously so, like the original.
These bars are perfect for afternoon coffee or tea, or to bring to the office for a party. Make a double batch. They'll go fast!
The recipe is adapted from one by the Cookie Rookie. We made significant changes to the baking time and adapted the ingredients a little. The 9x13 pan makes about 15 triangular servings. We didn't do a new calculation, but this size bar is around 115 calories (the original is a whopping 340). These are best kept refrigerated.
