Healthy Magic Bars
Magic 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 Magic Bars, a healthier alternative that sure doesn’t taste healthy at all!
Chewy yet crunchy, sweet and buttery Magic Bars that are rich with gooey chocolate. I think my heart is melting. Melting like chocolate chips in the oven… 😉

I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But, I understand not having a recipe here can be frustrating. So, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I'll show you all the ingredients I use in the recipe. That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
With love and good eats,
