Cinnamon Chewy Bars

These bars are incredibly chewy and bursting with cinnamon flavor. I was inspired to make these after happening upon this blog. I've tweaked the recipe just a bit and I think the results are perfection! 

The tops of these bars are crunchy, but the insides are amazingly chewy. I promise that you'll be happily surprised after you've taken a bite.

These are a great alternative to a cookie or a brownie, plus, they are easy to whip up in just under half an hour! The best part? I had all these ingredients in my pantry and it required no trips to the grocery store (double bonus, am I right?).

Make a double batch and share with your friends! 

Thanks for stopping by! Recipe is below the photos.

Ingredients:

Flour, 2 cups
Cinnamon, 1 Tablespoon
Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda, 1/4 teaspoon
Light Brown Sugar, packed, 2 cups
Butter, 1/2 cup
Eggs, 2
Vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons

Directions:

  1. First, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix, and set aside. 
  2. Then, over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar. Stir together until smooth. This took me about 7 minutes. Be sure not to burn your sugar! 
  3. Once smooth, remove the sugar mixture and transfer to another small bowl. Allow this mixture to cool for approximately 8 minutes. 
  4. Once the mixture is cool, mix in eggs and vanilla extract. Then, mix in flour mixture. Combine until smooth. 
  5. In a greased pan, pour in mixture. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes. You'll know these bars are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remember: the top will crack! (That's a good thing). 
  6. Allow the bars to cool before cutting. Serve topped with a little bit of white sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy!
