Learn how to make soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie bars with self-rising flour. These easy 9×13 cookie bars are delicious and loaded with chocolate chips!




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with parchment paper
  • To prepare your cookie dough, first place softened unsalted butter in a large mixing bowl and use an electric hand mixer to mix until creamy and smooth. Next, add in light brown sugar and continue mixing until combined. Pour in granulated sugar and mix until smooth and combined. Lastly, add in two large eggs and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. 
  • Next, begin adding in the self-rising flour in batches, and continue mixing until incorporated. Turn off the electric hand mixer and fold in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips with a spatula. I used half milk chocolate chips and half dark chocolate chips for the perfect balance. 
  • Pour the cookie dough into the lined 9×13 pan, and use a spatula to evenly spread the batter in the pan, ensuring it gets to all of the corners. Top the cookie dough with the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. 
  • Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes and the cookie bars are a light golden brown. Let the bars cool completely on a cooling rack before cutting.
  • Once cooled, use a sharp knife and cut into 15-18 bars. If desired, serve with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!

Storage Instructions: Let the cookie bars cool completely, cut into bars, and store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days. If desired, reheat individual slices of the chocolate chip cookie bars in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to make them perfectly gooey and warm. They’re also perfectly delicious at room temperature.

Freezer Instructions:  Freeze cookie bars in a freezer safe bag or freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Once ready to eat, reheat individual servings in the microwave until warm.
