Do you remember in your old life when you ate everything? Well I do. I cooked and baked all the time, not unlike now. Although then, I didn’t need to worry about substitutions. Everyone could eat everything… I used to make Magic Bars all the time! My daughter and her friends would love to come over and eat them. I had been thinking about them recently. First I had to make the sweetened condensed milk. After a couple of tries, I was able to get that to work. The rest was actually very easy!

Now these are not exactly the same as my old ones, but if I do say so myself, they are a fantastic substitution!

Paleo Magic Bars

Magic Bars (Paleo/ Vegan/ Gluten Free/ Dairy Free)

2 c. almond flour

1/2 c. dates (pitted)

1/4 c. coconut oil

1 batch sweetened condensed coconut milk

1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut

1 c. chopped nuts (I used walnuts)

1 c. dairy free dark chocolate -chopped (I used Enjoy Life)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Soak dates in boiling water for 5 minutes to soften them. Drain dates and add them as well as the almond flour and coconut oil to the food processor. Pulse until mixed thoroughly.  Press mixture into a parchment paper lined 9″ by 13″ pan. Top with sweetened condensed milk, then coconut, nuts, and chocolate.

    • They are delicious! Especially when you can’t eat regular chocolate bars.

  1. Oh wow they looks so, so good, I think I’l make these with coconut flour rather than almonds as I can’t eat nuts. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x

  2. I haven’t baked with dates – any substitutions out there? Banana? Applesauce? If it’s just for the sweetness….maple syrup? Thanks! these look awesome!

  3. OMG! These look amazing! I’m drooling over here… seriously ;p I have a potluck coming up and I was racking my brain trying to think of something to make for dessert, but wanted something different. I am so excited you posted this. I am totally making this for my potluck *squee!*
