2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup of coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional but this is what makes this cookie bar a little chewy)
1 cup of sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Lily’s stevia-sweetened chocolate chips )
1 cup of chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12×16 inch cookie sheet with parchment paper. )For thicker bars use 9×13 greased baking pan.

Add the five eggs one at a time, mix well making sure the eggs are well incorporated into the batter.
Fold in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum.
