Girl Guide Cookie Bars

  • Author: Katherine
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 24 cookie bars 1x


This is my FAVORITE Girl Guide cookie recipe! Soft and chewy cookie bars studded with delicious chocolate and vanilla Girl Guide cookie chunks.


  • 2/3 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 16 Girl Guide cookies*, crushed/chopped into small pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil – leave enough hanging over the sides so you can easily grab and lift the bars out of the pan later. Spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or using a hand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. With the mixer running on low, add the eggs one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, as needed. Add in the vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  4. With the mixer running on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet until fully incorporated. Using a spatula, fold in the crushed cookies.
  5. Press the batter evenly into the pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes.* Let the bars cool for at least 15-20 minutes before grabbing the edge of the foil and lifting the bars out of the pan. Cut into 24 bars.

Bars will keep at room temperature, in a sealed container, for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.


  1. Substitute Girl Guide cookies for any other type of sandwich cookie that can be crushed (Oreo, etc)
  2. I took my bars out at 20 minutes and they were fairly gooey.
