Get ready to be obsessed with these very easy coconut chocolate snickerdoodle bars.
You know that (super annoying) saying, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”? That question weighs heavy on my mind regularly because, frankly, a lot of things taste better to me than being skinny. Like, most things taste better. I have mentioned a few times lately that I am making some half-hearted efforts to lose ten pounds. The problem is, do you know what losing weight requires? Eating less! That sounds like a really bad deal to me! So, lately I’ve been having an internal struggle over dieting to slim down versus eating what I want (within reason) and being happy with myself. Today, I am clearly leaning toward the latter. Who wants to diet when you could be eating coconut chocolate snickerdoodle bars? I’m kind of embarrassed to share glamour shots of these heavenly good bar cookies because they are ridiculously easy to make thanks to cookie mix. Of course, you could substitute your favorite homemade snickerdoodle dough here. I might do that next time, but I happened to have snickerdoodle mix in my pantry that I bought half off after the holidays, which is how these cookie bars were born! I’m still going to try to drum up the motivation to exercise more and not eat quite so much, but you can’t make me give up dessert! There is no way skinny can taste as good as chocolate, coconut, and cinnamon!
What else can you do with cake and cookie mixes? Let me show you!
