These Maple Glazed Cinnamon Chip Bars are an easy-to-make fall treat that’s packed with flavor thanks to cinnamon baking chips and a sweet maple glaze.
Thank you so much for joining me and Julie Blanner back here for Day 3 of Fall Cookie Week (FCW). Today we’re baking Maple Glazed Cinnamon Chip Bars!
Maple Glazed Cinnamon Chip Bars
Every once and a while, I like to include a non-traditional cookie in Fall Cookie Week. I especially like to make bar cookies because they are easy and fast to put together. All you need is one pan. There’s no shaping, rolling, or cutting. Just bake and cut!
How to Make Maple Glazed Cinnamon Chip Bars:
Some of the great flavor in these bars comes from cinnamon chips. Cinnamon chips are a relatively new product. Similar to chocolate chips, they can be melted, mixed into baked goods, melted, or sprinkled on top of them.
These chips get folded into the cookie dough that is then spread into a pan. Once the baked dough comes out of the oven and has a chance to cool, it is drizzled with a sweet maple glaze. I strongly recommend using pure maple syrup in the glaze. My favorite is Finding Home Farms.
Once the glaze sets up, slice the baked dough into bars. Your easy and flavorful fall treat is now ready to be enjoyed.

- 1 cup butter softened
- 2 cups brown sugar packed
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup cinnamon baking chips divided
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Pinch of kosher salt
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the butter and brown until well blended. Then, beat in the vanilla and eggs, one at a time.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Slowly beat the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Stir in the cinnamon chips, reserving a few for the top. Lightly spread the dough into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Sprinkle the top evenly with the reserved cinnamon chips.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, create the glaze by whisking together the confectioners' sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and kosher salt. Add enough maple syrup to create a drizzling consistency. Drizzle on top of the pan of baked cookie dough.
After the glaze is set, cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
