Cookie bars were produced from mixtures of cassava and groundnut flours with cornstarch as binder. Box-Behnken response surface design for k=3 was used to study the effects of experimental variables for cassava flour (25-75%), groundnut flour (25-75%) and corn starch (5-15%). Effects of the experimental variables on physical properties of the cookie bars were assessed. Experimental variables had significant effect on the thickness and spread factor of the cookie bars.
