Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Cadbury Egg Cookie Bars. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Instead of using butter or a lot of oil, I used almond butter which works great as a healthy fat in baked goods. You can use peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter or oat butter as well.

Eggs are going to add to the overall texture of these cookies bars, making them really fluffy.

Coconut sugar is an unrefined sweetener that I love to use in my recipes. Alternatively, you can use cane sugar, brown sugar or even maple syrup, agave or date syrup.

Coconut oil is going to make these bars moist, you can use butter or any other oil such as extra virgin olive oil, or avocado oil.

Vanilla extract adds flavor to every baked good.

Use a plant based milk to keep these dairy free, otherwise any milk or nut milk alternative will work.

Almond flour gives these cookie bars a lovely, but subtle nutty taste while creating a light a fluffy texture.

Oat flour is going to help bind all the ingredients together while providing a dense texture for these cookie bars.

Baking soda helps these bars rise and have a fluffy texture.

A touch of salt balances out all the flavors.

Use Cadbury eggs for a festive touch, otherwise you can use M&M’s, Unreal candies, or just chocolate chips.
