Cinnamon Brown Sugar Bars
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.

These look great! I love anything cinnamon and brown sugar.
I need to start making more bars, especially after seeing this gorgeousness! Cinnamon and brown sugar steals my heart every time. These looks SO good, Cyndi! I wish I had a bar (or three) to go along with my morning cup of coffee!
A snickerdoodle in bar form? Yes, please! These bars sound absolutely delicious – can’t go wrong with cinnamon and brown sugar!
I love bar recipes as well, I just don’t have the patience for finicky desserts! And anything cinnamon is my favorite anyways, so I really need to try these!
Mmm bar desserts are my favorite too and I love that these have brown sugar instead of white sugar with the cinnamon. Such a good flavor combo!!
Theae sounds so deeeelish!! On my must bake list ?
Thank you Holly! I hope you enjoy them! 🙂
I’ve got these in the oven! They already smell divine, can’t wait to see how they turn out.
Hi Sarah! I hope you loved them as much as I do. Those are one of my all time favorite bars. Enjoy! 🙂

I just love the combination of brown sugar and cinnamon. The bars look so delicious, and its great that they can be eaten as a snack or dessert.
Thank you and I totally agree!
Currently eating! They are DELICIOUS!
These turned out even better than I thought they would! For the topping, I used 3 T of sugar and 1 T of cinnamon because I didn’t want the cinnamon flavor to be too overwhelming. They’re super moist and delicious, and I feel like I might add chopped nuts next time for some texture variety.
Can you make these without a standing mixer?
Delicious! I was looking for inexpensive snacks to feed my teenagers during Covid-19 schooling at home and these fit the bill. Hubby took extra to work for co-workers as well. Thanks for an excellent recipe.
These are delicious and definitely hit the spot as a after dinner desert and with my morning coffee. i did not have enough butter softened and I was very impatient so I substituted with coconut oil and it turned out great!
Simple, delicious and filling. I’m never one to leave comments, but this recipe is the best! My whole batch went in 1 night with my friends! Thank you – my baking credentials are increasing 🙂
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make! Thank you for the recipe 🙂
I made these and even my husband, who is not a cookie fan, ate them! They were fantastic; just what I was looking for. The only change I would make is to halve the sugar on top, as it was a LOT. But I will definitely make them again.
Made these today. They are amazing. I also made a cream cheese frosting to throw on top because why not
This was my first time making a cinnamon bar, and definitely won’t be the last! So unbelievably delicious and my entire family asked for the recipe. The only change I will make the next time is to reduce the amount of cinnamon in the topping, as the cinnamon on top was a little too bitter (maybe 1 1/2 tsp instead).
These will now take the place of snickerdoodles for holiday baking, thank you!
Excellent! Like snickerdoodles in bar form. They came together quickly and easily, no issues with baking. I halved the amount of cinnamon and sugar for the topping. The full amount would have been A LOT. I suggested to my husband that we freeze half the bars because I was worried we wouldn’t eat them all quickly enough, and he said, “Oh don’t worry, I’ll eat them in time. Can I have yours too?” Safe to say that we will be making these again.
It was amazing and a great experience to do with friends ❤
