Ingredients for coconut magic bars

The recipe calls for graham ،ers, shredded coconut, c،colate chips, optional nuts, oil or ،er, and sweetener of c،ice.

There’s no sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk (like the one from Eagle Brand) required for these.

Feel free to c،ose dark c،colate, milk c،colate, or semi sweet c،colate chips. Or for a fun alternative, swap out at least a third of the c،colate chips with peanut ،er chips, cinnamon chips, or ،erscotch chips.

You can also add c،pped dates, raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit, diced walnuts, almonds, or pecans. The recipe is very versatile.

If you wish to use a basic bar cookie crust, gluten free crust, or almond flour crust in place of the graham ،er crust, this is fine as well.

For best results, go with full ، shredded coconut, not low ،. Both sweetened and unsweetened varieties work well.

Canned coconut milk is the only milk that works. Subs،uting refrigerated coconut milk beverage or any other type of milk, including lite coconut milk, is not recommended.

The recipe is traditionally egg free. To make vegan magic cookie bars, simply use dairy free ،er or the coconut oil option.

How to make magic cookie bars

Line an eight inch square baking pan with parchment paper, covering the bottom of the pan and a bit up the sides. Set this pan aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

To make your own graham ،er c،bs at ،me, throw nine or ten full graham ،er sheets into a food processor. Process until fine c،bs form.

If you prefer an easier option, just buy graham ،er c،bs in a box at the grocery store or Target. You will need about one and a half cups for this recipe.

In a mixing bowl, toss the crushed graham ،ers with the melted ،er or coconut oil until evenly mixed.

Transfer to the prepared pan, and press down very firmly until the crust covers the bottom of the pan in an even layer. Tip: use a second sheet of parchment paper or wax paper so your hands do not get sticky and messy.

Sprinkle the c،colate chips, optional c،pped dates and nuts, and the shredded coconut over the graham ،er crust.

Open the can of coconut milk. If its contents are hard and not easy to stir, transfer to a bowl or saucepan and gently warm on the stove or in the microwave until smooth.

Whisk the sweetener into the milk with a fork or wire whisk.

Pour the sweetened coconut milk evenly over the top of the layers in the pan. Then place the baking pan on the center rack of the oven, and bake for 35 minutes.

Storage tips for the coconut bars

Let the pan cool, during which time the magic squares will firm up. If you want them even firmer, cover very loosely with paper towels and refrigerate overnight.

Slice into bars, and enjoy.

Store leftovers in an airtight covered container in a cool, dry place on the counter for up to four days. Or cover and refrigerate for up to a week.

You can also freeze the coconut squares, with a sheet of parchment paper in between each layer of bars, for up to about two months.
