Secret Ingredient Heath Bar Cookies

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

I made these cookies last night and, holy yum, I can’t stop thinking about them. Ok, maybe it’s because I haven’t eaten anything today and all I can think about is food, but these cookies are definitely something special.

Secret Ingredient Heath Bar Cookies

Secret ingredient? Ooh, yes. It definitely adds a little something-something to the recipe. It’s not the bits of Heath Bar though. It’s actually a tiny amount of rum extract. The rum flavor mixed with brown sugar, maple syrup, toffee, and chocolate is absolutely incredible… and, apparently, unforgettable.

The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy with bits of Heath bar mixed throughout. They are seriously amazing. I’m already planning to eat the rest of the batch tomorrow!

  1. Haha, I misread them as “health” bar cookies. Then I looked at the ingredients and was like, “since when are Heath Bars healthy? … Oh!”

    These do look holy yum!

  2. Yum those look good! Especially since I’m on day 3 of a week long sugar detox. Today has been the worst of it so far. I would eat that whole plate of cookies- hot with milk-right now!! Hope your prep is going okay-I’ve been thinking about you today!

  3. Oh those look incredible! My mom’s favorite candy bar is a Heath bar and with Mother’s Day coming up, these might be a fabulous sweet treat for her…Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. Those looks amazing: the first reflex that comes to mind is “They look so good, they CANNOT be healthy.”

    Of course I do not mind being proven wrong…

  5. Having trouble finding rum extract – any suggestions for a substitute, or is it OK to just leave it out?

  6. If I don’t have almond flour and coconut oil, do you know what other baking ingredients can be used to substitute these?

  7. These look wicked good! I think I might add homemade caramel to them instead of the Heath bar. I love your blog!

  8. Yum! My hubby loves home-made cookies. I’ll make them coming monday. Almond meal and coconut oil are a great combination.

    Thanks a lot for the recipe πŸ™‚
