This is the Rebar Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and it’s fantastic! I was looking for the recipe on my blog to link to my most recent pictures and realised I hadn’t shared it yet. The chopped apricots are a really nice sweet touch that you’d totally miss if you didn’t know they were in there. I almost always double this recipe.

  3. Oh pure heaven!!!! I made these this evening and pratically made myself sick from eating too many (horrible will power). I substituted a 1/2 c flour with ground oatmeal b/c I love the tast of oatmeal in cookies. Love the apricot addition. This is my favorite cookie recipe now, thanks for sharing it!

    I was looking for this recipe for my blog since I just made them and wanted to share. I didn’t have chocolate chips so instead I used 1 1/2 dark chocolate with sea salt bars and chopped them up in the food processor. I also substituted pomegranate craisins since I didn’t have apricots. OMG… these cookies were soooo good! I’ll have to try them the “normal” way but dang this version was the bomb. EVERYONE loved them! And it’s such an easy recipe! I LOVE the Rebar cookbook and the restaurant. Thanks for sharing the recipe online. I’ll be sharing it soon too! :)
