Made this and it turned out really good, really moist and chocolatey. No-one knew about the courgettes!-04 Oct 2011


I have made this recipe many times now, and it gets rave reviews every time. I top this cake (because it is a cake!) with a chocolate cream cheese icing. It's dense and moist and delicious, it gets even better after a day or two (but doesn't always last that long) and it freezes well.-30 Mar 2004

I can't figure out why this recipe is called Chocolate bars, when it really is a cake. The author of the recipe even calls them cookies!This is a cake, folks. It is good chocolate cake and a good way to use up extra zucchini.For the calorie counters:I substitued Lighter Bake for the butter, and it cuts the fat yet you lose no moisture or taste. I also cut the sugar some.-03 Aug 2001

Baked Kinder Cookie Dough Slices (GF)

These gluten free Kinder cookie dough slices are my new favourite treat! Crisp at the edges with beautifully soft cookie dough in the centre, studded with chocolate chips and pockets of melted Kinder bar, they are harrrrd to resist.

Honestly, is there anything better than warm cookie dough packed with chocolate? I don’t think so (although there is a close rival in the form of my salted caramel swirl brownies)!

For the ultimate dessert, try warming one of these slices in the microwave for 30 seconds, then topping with a scoop of your favourite ice cream. Heaven on a plate!

My Kinder cookie slices are a quick treat to bake, only needing 16 minutes in the oven, and they can be eaten whilst still warm. This makes them ideal when you want to whip up something incredibly delicious, incredibly quickly!

Once baked, they will keep well for a few days in an airtight tin. As they still very soft cookie dough in the centre, they stay nice and squidgy and don’t dry out quickly. That’s a problem I found with some other cookie bar recipes.

You can them eat them as they are or give them a little warm up in the microwave (30 seconds does the trick) to get the Kinder chocolate all melty again.

I use the standard Kinder chocolate bars, which in the UK are gluten free and certified by Coeliac UK (at the time of writing). I believe they are gluten free in other parts of the world too, but please always check labels before baking with Kinder bars. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

If you can’t find Kinder bars in the shops (I buy mine in Coop or Tesco), then feel free to switch in a different treat. See the substitutions section below for more details.


Chocolate: I use Kinder chocolate for these cookie dough slices, but you can use any chocolate treats you like. Double check that your choice is gluten free and then press into the top of the cookie dough before you bake it.

As for the chocolate drops, I use Callebaut Belgian milk chocolate drops in my bars, but any variety of choc chip will do. Again, do check that your chosen brand is gluten free as some cooking chocolate is not suitable for coeliacs.

Sugar: my cookie dough has a beautiful golden hue from the use of dark brown sugar, which also lends a slight caramelised taste to the final cookie slices. If you don’t have dark brown sugar, light brown will work just fine.

Flour: I have been using FREEE by Doves Farm gluten free plain flour for these recently, but other flours varieties I enjoy baking with are the Shipton Mill and Marks & Spencer gluten free flours. Lidl do a great gluten free plain flour too, although I can never find it in the shops these days.

If you only have self raising flour, skip the addition of baking powder. You will them end up with the same sort of texture (with very mild rise).

Any Other Questions?

Feel free to drop me an email at [email protected] if you have questions about this recipe. Or perhaps other baking requests! I love a challenge :).

Otherwise, I really hope you enjoy these gluten free Kinder cookie dough slices!

Chocolate smoothie with hidden courgette

Really? A chocolate smoothie with COURGETTE! No, I didn’t go crazy. This taste sooo good! The frozen courgette with cacao creates a milkshake-like drink that I often make for my husband and myself in the afternoon as an extra energy boost.

Sometimes you just need something simple, easy to eat and after a short break continuing with the next challenge. This smoothie is perfect for such occasions. You often see similar recipes with frozen banana. That is of course also be delicious but I was looking for a recipe without a banana flavor and more greens in it. I tried with the frozen courgette and it just turned out great!

Frozen courgette

So simple but still, the instructions0)
– Take a yellow, green or white courgette. Rinse and pad it dry with a kitchen towel. No need to peel it.
– Cut it into slices of about 1/2 cm and cut each slice into quarters.
– Lay them flat in a freezer bag, try to avoid the pieces to lie on top of each other. Place the bag flat in the freezer for about 4 hours.
– When the courgette is frozen, you can tie the bag. Doing it this way, it becomes easy to portion the frozen courgette to your future smoothies. If you are making spiralized courgette pasta every now and then, just add the small pieces that are left to the bag. In that way you can make use of everything and avoid food waste. A win-win!
