Happy Earth Day! Any big plans for the day? Are you planting a tree or cleaning up the neighborhood? These are the kind of activities we used to do when I was a kid and hopefully in a few years when my little ones are old enough to appreciate it, we’ll do them too. Today I am sharing a super easy and delicious cookie bar recipe, White Chocolate Fruity Pebble Bars. I just love the fun bright colors in them, they make the perfect Earth Day treat to share.
A fruity twist on the classic “Congo Bar” these White Chocolate Fruity Pebble Bars are a take on the crispy chocolate chip oat cookies I made last month. I just loved the texture of the crisp rice cereal in these soft cookie bars and you can never go wrong with adding a bit of white chocolate.
However you decide to celebrate Earth Day, I hope you’ll enjoy these cookie bars; happy baking!
