We all know by now that cookies are an absolute fav in this household. Well, cookie bars are just as loved, if not more (by me especially) and today I’m bringing you the ultimate cookie bar that is a must try!
I’d have never of thought of putting these ingredients together but honestly… it’s a winning combo.
A post I saw on Pinterest caught my eye straight away when put these ingredients together to make a cookie bar and I instantly knew I had to give these ingredients a try myself. (the original recipe: https://bakerbynature.com/brown-butter-honey-pistachio-cookie-bars/) DAMN! I’m glad I did, as these are blooming delicious.
Soft. Chewy. Moist. Flavourful. Seriously what more could you ask for when making a cookie bar? I know I say this a lot now days but I think these could possibly be up there with the best cookie bars I’ve ever made. Seriously, myself and my family are obsessed.
Put it this way; my mum who is wholeheartedly honest with me when it comes to my bakes, said and I quote ‘these cookie bars are up there with the best bake you’ve ever done’. So, there you go people, you’ve heard it from mumma dev, these are blooming delicious and you must make them ASAP!

Overall Time: 45 Minutes

- 1 Large Egg

How To Make Cookie Bars:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line a brownie tin with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C / 160C Fan / Gas Mark 4.
- Secondly, in a medium sized sauce pan, on a medium-low heat, place your 141g of unsalted butter and cook the butter until its completely melted and has began to brown (TIP: you’ll know it’s beginning to brown as the butter releases a nutty aroma).
- Once the butter has browned, add it to a large mixing bowl alongside 200g of light brown sugar and 3.5tbsp of honey and using an electric whisk, beat the ingredients together until smooth.
- Now, beat in the egg and yolk.
- Next, using a spatula, fold the plain flour and 1tsp of salt into the wet mixture (TIP: try not to over mix the mixture as it’ll become dense).
- Pour the batter into the brownie tin and sprinkle the 75g of chopped pistachios over the top.
- Place the brownie tin into the oven for around 25-30 minutes until the edges are set and the top is golden.
- Finally, once baked, take the tin out the oven and allow the cookie bars to cool in the tin for 10-15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool further.

I’d say they are one of the better nuts for sure. They are my mums absolute fav! These bars are honestly super yummy. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
I love browned butter but always worry I’m burning it.
I totally get that. I usually take mine off the heat as soon as I smell the nutty aroma, it hits you pretty quickly! I hope that helps. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
Ooh fab recipe! I love cookies but I’ve never actually tried a cookie bar before and these look amazing – it’s such a unique combination! Thanks for sharing x

I love the sound of these! I love pistachio and honey is a great way to sweeten things and it brings such a gorgeous taste!
They are perfect together, aren’t they? I love honey as a sweetener, it’s become a favourite of mine to use in recipes recently. These bars are just delish with the sweetness of the honey alongside the other ingredients! Thank you so much for commenting Xo
These are right up my street with the honey and the pistachio, the latter I never seen to use enough when cooking x
Honestly, these ingredients pair so beautifully together – I’m obsessed! Defiantly worth putting them together in a recipe, I think you’ll love it. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
This sounds really nice! I would have never thought of such a combination of ingredients. I am loving this blog, all these different recipes you post about. Thanks for sharing!
Neither had I until I came across this recipe and now I’m obsessed haha. These are just delicious. Ah thank you so much, that means the world! Thank you so much for commenting Xo
These brown butter squares definitely look bloomy delicious. They remind me of cassava pone. The pistachio adds a delicious texture to the bars.
They really are delicious! Ooo I hadn’t heard of cassava pone before but WOW, it looks delicious. They really do. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
I don’t think I’ve heard of a cookie recipe like this before. I do love a good cookie though, but I’m not a fan of pistachios, so I’ll have to remove them from the recipe
You can’t beat a good cookie, can you? You could defiantly take the pistachios off and it’ll still be a super yummy sweet treat to have. Or you could swap them out for something you’d prefer! Thank you so much for commenting Xo
My Mum would love these! I will have to make these for when she next visits me. Thank you for sharing!
Oo my mum is obsessed with these, it’s one of her favourite bakes I’ve ever done apparently! You’ll have to let me know what she thinks, I hope she loves them. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
