Sugar Cookie Bars:

  • 1/3 cup Earth Balance (or anther dairy free butter substitute)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1/3 cup Earth Balance (or another dairy free butter substitute)
  • 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp oat milk (or another milk substitute)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Optional for topping:

  • sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Earth Balance (or another dairy free butter spread) and sugar. Beat until well-combined. (I recommend using a stand mixer or hand mixer for this).
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until everything is just combined and your cookie dough forms.
  5. Press your cookie dough into your 8x8 dish. Flatten it out using your hands so it’s evenly dispersed throughout the dish. Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until cooked through and very lightly golden on top.
  6. Let the cookie bars cool. Once cooled completely, make the frosting: add earth balance, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl and beat until a nice fluffy frosting has formed. (I recommend using either a stand mixer or hand mixer for this).
  7. Spread frosting over cooled cookie bars, and optionally top with sprinkles. Cut into 9 bars and enjoy!
