Vegan Cookie Recipes: Kitchen Sink Bars


Vegan Cookie Recipes: "Kitchen Sink" Bars
These kitchen sink bars are always a hit. They include just about everything in your pantry- fruit, nuts, chocolate, and coconut. “Everything but the kitchen sink,” as the expression goes. They’re very decadent but a bit healthier than their conventional counterparts. However, we don’t condemn throwing in some crushed potato chips, pretzels, or maybe even your favorite vegan Girl Scout cookie. Go wild! And be sure to tell us the results.
