Healthy Seven Layer Bars
Seven Layer Bars are a classically UNhealthy dessert, with the graham cracker crust packed with butter, the sweetened shredded coconut covered in sugar and the condensed milk full of even more sugar… it’s a calorie bomb, fat bomb and sugar bomb.
While nothing is wrong with fat, per se — because healthy fats are good for you! — it’s just ridiculous how much can fit into one little square. I want my food to energize me and make me feel good, not weigh me down and make me feel like I need a nap.
So I made a healthier version without the butter and the added sugars, but most importantly, no partially hydrogenated oil or trans fats… just simple, pure, natural and wholesome ingredients. From the looks of it, can you even tell that these are good for you? No. These are sinless Seven Layer Bars, a healthier alternative that sure doesn’t taste healthy at all!
Healthy Seven Layer Bars? I think my heart is melting.
Chomp. Yum. Delicious.
Chewy yet crunchy, sweet and rich, buttery with gooey chocolate.
