Oh Yum! Part I: Grain-Free Magic Cookie Bars

We are revisiting some favorite recipes from years past and I hope you enjoy this one.

It’s a new month and a new Lauren’s Kitchen theme! Here’s what I am going for in this Oh Yum! series: Gluten Free (grain free if possible), Refined Sugar-Free, Dairy Free, and FLAVOR FULL! I’ll be sharing a Hubele family-tested recipe each week to give you a nice repertoire of treats heading into summer. And I know my family is just going to hate the job of taste testing these ideas. 😉

So let’s get this party started with the perfect re-do of the classic Magic Cookie Bar. Three delightful layers make up these crowd pleasing bars. Be sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to stash a few away in your freezer.

Ingredients
For the Coconut Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
Pinch of salt

For the Cookie Crust
1/2 cup hazelnut flour (almond flour will work too)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup coconut oil or butter, melted (Earth Balance coconut spread)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 egg (may be replaced with a flax “egg” or commercial egg replacer)
1 teaspoon vanilla

For the Bars
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips (vegan, gluten free brand please!)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Enjoy!
