Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
I've sort of decided to have a theme for this week: Healthier Comfort Food!
 Some of our favorite guilty pleasures, made slightly less guilty!
Monday we had a homemade, preservative + corn syrup free chocolate syrup. Today I'm going to share a classic childhood treat-chocolate chip cookie bars! BUT made with whole wheat and no butter (just canola oil)!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
These cookie bars are so gooey and decadent, you really can't tell that anything about them is less than sinful. It's a perfect way to serve something a little healthier to a room full of kiddos (or a room full of one boyfriend, in my case). I'm not saying these are good for you by any means, however. Just, you know, a little less bad. These totally took me back to my childhood, and they're tasty as all get out!
