Ok, y’all, I’m interrupting today’s typical programming to advise you of something that I just learned…
Did you realize that today is
National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day??
Now, this “holiday” would have flown right by without notice, if my friends from Quest Nutrition hadn’t reached out to me to notify me of the event!
Now.. you know someone with a blog called “No Thanks to Cake” has a few favorite chocolate chip cookies…
Chickfila has an INSANE chocolate chunk cookie!
My work likes to order Chickfila’s catering quite often, and they always bring a tray of cookies. I usually try to say no, but if I do… I always describe them as “worth-it” cookies. So good!
Woody Creek Bakery and Cafe sells these tiny chocolate chippers that I think are awesome too. Their tiny factor makes them perfect when you just need a bite of cookie!
Today, I met a brand new Chocolate Chip Cookie that is totally guilt-free, made from real ingredients, and loaded with protein: The Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar. O-M-G!!!
The lovely folks over at Quest sent me a whole box of these cookie dough bars, as well as a variety pack of their other flavors. They are SO GOOD! To find out which local stores sell these bars in your area, click here.
I find these bars to be so much more filling and to have a much better flavor that most bars I come across. They also have REAL ingredients, which makes me feel a little better about eating them as well.
For months, I’ve been seeing Quest “cookies” on Instagram and Pinterest, so I decided to try to make a batch of these baked goods in honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! Check out how good they came out!
I made my batch of “cookies” with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavored bar, but I can imagine that any of their flavors would be fabulous made into cookies. AND… there’s just one ingredient. See below!
Quest Bar Cookies

4. Roll each piece into a ball. Flatten the “dough” slightly before placing in the oven.
