Cinnamon Brown Sugar Bars are a moist delicious bar, topped with a cinnamon sugar topping. These bars are such a big hit in my house that I have to hide a few or I won’t get any to myself. Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream or make a cup of coffee and you’ll be in heaven!
It’s no secret around here that I’m really obsessed with bar recipes. They’re in fact my favorite form of dessert. I love how easy they are to throw together and for the most part bars are always fail proof. I also love that there is no mess when eating them. Maybe a few crumbs, but those are easy to clean up. 🙂
I have all sorts of bar recipes you can check out, but before you do you, need to make this recipe. These bars are the perfect combination of brown sugar and cinnamon. They remind me of a snickerdoodle cookie, but better! When I made them the kids and hubby were out of the house and I couldn’t help myself. I grabbed a huge slice, some vanilla ice cream and a cup of coffee. And I went to town. They were phenomenal!
I never told them that I sat and had dessert before lunch and dinner. They would have wanted a piece and I wasn’t sure I wanted to share yet. I get into big trouble with bars. I like them so much that I can eat them all day every day. They can be snacks or dessert. I don’t care as long as I can snack and eat. Most of the time I make any sort of bars, I have to get them out of the house asap because before you know it, I’ve eaten 5 slices. It really is a bad habit.
As you can tell I’m a huge sweet tooth girl. It’s pretty bad, so when ever I make desserts I drop them off to my hubby’s work or I make sure to take them to the next door neighbors. That way I won’t sit around eating all day. Food blogging’s a tough job, but someone has to do it, hehe.
I highly suggest the next time you’re in the mood for some bars or dessert, that you make these Cinnamon Brown Sugar Bars. They won’t last very long, so make sure to grab or hide a few slice for yourself.
