Recipe: Malt Cookie Bars

Malt Cookie Bars at This Beautiful Frugal Life

I am the ambassador of all things malt. Most of the time I bring up my love of malts, most people look confused.  Growing up, a vanilla banana malt was a regular treat in my house. The familiar large tub of malted milk is now in my cupboard for my husband and I. If you haven’t given malts a try, your milkshake world is about to be rocked. Get yourself a tub and then use some of the powder to make these amazing malt bars. These are one type of baked good that is not best warm. You need to let these cool completely so the center can harden and I actually prefer them being in the fridge.


1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup malted milk powder
2 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips


Beat butter, brown sugar, malted milk powder, chocolate syrup, and vanilla for 2 minutes. Beat in the egg until well combined.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir to combine.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper. Press the cookie dough into the dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes. They will still seem gooey in the centers so let them cool completely before cutting into them
