These bars taste chometzdig! We make at least four trays of these over Pesach
- 6 eggs separated -
- 1 1/2 cups sugar -
- 1/2 cup oil -
- 3 tsp coffee dissolved in 1 Tbsp water -
- 1/2 cup ground nuts -
- 2 packages vanilla sugar -
- 3/4 cup potato starch -
- chocolate chips, optional -
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Beat egg whites until stiff. Set aside. Beat yolks with sugar until smooth and pale yellow. Add oil, coffee, nuts, and vanilla sugar. Mix well. Sift potato starch over batter while mixing, and mix just until incorporated. Pour into a 9x13-inch pan lined with baking paper. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top, if desired (recommended!). Bake for 40 minutes or until set.
Cool slightly. Cut into nice shapes with a cookie cutter, if desired, or cut into squares.
Tip These bars freeze well and taste great frozen.
Note To make low-fat, use just 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. That’s how we make them and they’re just as delicious.
Serving Idea Use these bars as a base for ice cream. Place a bar on a plate, scoop vanilla or chocolate ice cream on top, and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Top with candied nuts. Yum!
