Light Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

“I love chocolate chip cookie bars, I lightened them up to include more whole grains, less fat and sugar. These are not as dense as traditional chocolate chip cookie bars, but they are super quick and easy to make which makes them great for potlucks! If you don't plan to use the pear baby food, use butter in its place (applesauce would make the bars much too 'cake-like.' Sometimes I like to add a few mini-chocolate chips into the dough before spreading into the pan. WW points = 2/serving”
