This has been tweaked since I put it on. Don't seal the bag when crushing the biscuits as it will pop open and explode everywhere!-03 Apr 2015

Dreamy Magical Bars Made Skinny
Many of you know these outrageously delicious bars as Magic Bars or Hello Dolly’s. I’m calling them, “Magical Bars” because they are just that! In fact, they’re probably the best bars ever created, even this skinny version is pretty amazing. Super rich and decadent and just six ingredients layered right in the pan. They’re a whole lot skinnier because I’m using reduced-fat butter, fat-free sweetened condensed milk, and a lot less chocolate, nuts, and coconut. Each delectable bar has 133 calories, 6 grams of fat and 6 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints, and 6 Green WW SmartPoints. These freeze great too!
1¼ cup graham cracker crumbs
½ cup flaked coconut (sweetened)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 oz) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a 13 x 9 baking pan, generously coat all sides with cooking spray with flour in it. I used Pam cooking spray with flour in it. If you don’t have it, coat with cooking spray and sprinkle bottom and sides with a little flour. Add butter and place in the oven to melt. This will take no more than a minute or two.
3. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the top of the butter and pat down a little. Do not mix.
4. Sprinkle the coconut evenly over the crumbs.
5. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the coconut.
6. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the chips. To make the milk easier to drizzle, place the can in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes.
8. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
9. Cut into 24 squares while still somewhat hot. If you let them cool they become very difficult to cut!
Sweetened condensed milk is what binds all of the ingredients together in these Magical Bars. It’s normally made from a mixture of whole milk and sugar that has about 60% of its water removed. Its consistency is thick and sticky like honey and is very sweet tasting. I’m using a fat-free version made with nonfat milk.
You’ll find graham cracker crumbs in a box in the baking section of most supermarkets.

Creamy Chocolate Coconut Bar Recipe
Still, while we were taking photos of my Creamy Coconut Bars, I saw that I went a little too far. The crust was really for Coconut Bars but I also had a little too much beautiful layer with pudding and cream so my bars really looked at least a little like a cake. Well, OK, when things really stood that way, I decided to make the piece which I will take photos of a little bigger like, say, the one for Chocolate Lasagna and take pictures like that.
And so, after an hour of playing with our camera, my husband couldn’t wait to try what was on the table.
„Ok, can I try this cake already? Ooops, bars!“ He was very inpatient. He ate the first piece in one bite and took another big one.
„Wether bars or cake, one thing is sure! This is fantastic! I love the taste of coconuts on these creams! The only thing is… there goes my diet again“ he concluded while he was licking the spoon.
And so, I leave up to you to decide whether you will call my Creamy Coconut Bars „cake“ or „bars“. But, one thing is sure, you will not make a mistake if you decide to make them yourselves. Cheers!
Dreamy Paleo S’mores Bars (The Best Paleo Dessert Ever!)
Who doesn’t love s’mores? It’s so yummy that it’s even why it got its name of “some mores”. I’ve tried to look into who invented this delicious snack, but the only information that I can find is that the first published recipe for s’mores originated all the way back in 1927. Ever since then, s’mores has been a classic staple to enjoy around a warm, cozy campfire. Since I love going camping with my family and friends, I thought it was only appropriate to share a recipe that makes some unbelievably good paleo-friendly s’more bars. Everything that you know and love about s’mores is found in these bars -- three delicious layers featuring a cookie crust, marshmallow, and chocolate.
The Cookie Crust
After preheating your oven to 350, the first step to making these delicious s’more bars is preparing the cookie crust base. Traditionally, s’mores is made with graham crackers, but in order to make this recipe appropriate for paleo followers, we’ll be using our own homemade base. Almond flour is the main ingredient used, which should come as no surprise to regular readers since it’s such a staple in many of my baking recipes. Unlike refined wheat flour, using flour made with almonds provides a wide range of health benefits. Some of the benefits of almonds include lowering cholesterol levels, relieving oxidative stress, and even lowering inflammation. (1) After combining the almond flour with the honey, coconut oil, and egg, line your baking tray with the crust mixture. The next step is to bake it for 10 to 15 minutes.
The Marshmallow Layer
Next up is the marshmallow layer. Making paleo style marshmallows is a relatively simple process, and it involves sprinkling grass fed gelatin into one quarter of a cup of water. The reason we opt to use grass fed gelatin is because it’s a much more nutrient dense option, offering more vitamins and antioxidants. (2) While your gelatin mixture is hydrating, you should be combining another quarter cup of water with the honey and vanilla extract. Heat this mixture up, and then combine it with your gelatin bowl. Transfer this new mixture to your baking pan on top of your crust and let it sit for six to eight hours until the marshmallow sets and dries.
The Chocolate Layer
Finally, we come to the chocolate layer. There’s nothing fancy going on here as it’s just a simple matter of melting your sugar and dairy-free dark chocolate together with coconut oil. Pour this mixture over top of the marshmallow layer and place it in the fridge for a few hours until the whole thing properly sets.
After refrigerating this dish, you can cut it into the bars and serve. And just like that, you’ve got yourself an amazingly yummy paleo version of a classic s’mores snack. That’s one of the main things that I love about living a paleo lifestyle — finding new, healthy ways to still be able to enjoy all of my favorite foods and desserts that I enjoyed growing up.
Here are a couple of other favorite recipe examples of mine that I can still enjoy thanks to adding a few clever paleo twists to things. As you can see, going paleo doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — I still love to enjoy things like pancakes, ice cream, and s’mores.
Oh boy are you gonna make friends FAST with this amazing recipe! You guys. These bars are what dreams are made of – no joke. First of all let’s talk about the flavor. Chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, and marshmallows. I know. Stop drooling. The first three are melted together to create the most dreamy concoction know to man. It’s spoon-licking worthy for sure.
Marshmallows are then covered in that creamy, dreamy awesomeness and poured into a baking dish to set up. A handful of M&Ms are sprinkled on top…wait, make that two handfuls, and then off to the fridge they go.
Did I miss anything? Nope. That took all of three minutes you guys. And then a couple hours later you pull this out…
Cut into bars are wait for the compliments to start rolling in. They will come.
I love recipes that call for a bag of this a bag of that and so on. This one fits the bill. A bag of chocolate chips, a bag of butterscotch chips, a bag of marshmallows, a cup of peanut butter and a cup of M&Ms. Done and done.
One trick to these easy bars, use non-stick foil. I use non-stick foil for baking exclusively. It’s extra sturdy and I never have to worry about sticking. The foil peels off so easily and you don’t have to worry about prepping a pan. Plus, if you play your cards right, you can avoid washing the 9吉 baking dish you used. #imlazy
Obviously the red and green M&Ms make these bars perfect for the holidays. Duh. And I know my readers are cray cray smart enough to figure out that using regular M&Ms would be the way to go the rest of the year, right? I plan on making these M&M’s Marshmallow Dream Bars once a week until I have to be wheeled out of my house. #winningatlife

Health Benefits of Coconut
Did you know that the coconut gets its name from the Spanish "coco," meaning "monkey face"? Aside from being funny-looking, there are many health benefits associated with eating coconut. In fact, the coconut is so healthy, that Pacific Islanders call the coconut palm "The Tree of Life," as coconuts are used as a source of both food and medicine. Around the world, coconut is used to treat asthma, baldness, colds, dysentery, earache, fever, gingivitis, kidney stones, lice, malnutrition, nausea, rash, scurvy, toothache, and more. Eat on!

You don’t need to start a campfire to enjoy s’mores flavors whenever you want. Graham cracker-studded brownies have a wonderful crunch and a dreamy appearance. Fat marshmallows are gooey and feature that golden hue you know and love. (No sticks required!) Best of all, when you cut into them, these deliver that gorgeous sticky marshmallow pull everyone goes gaga over.
Tips for Making Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars
- Don&rsquot skip lining the pan with a piece of parchment paper or foil. The liner will help you pull the slab of bars out of the pan, which is needed in order to cut them neatly.
- Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature. This will help them to mix properly into the various parts of the recipe.
- Grab a 1-cup measuring cup for the crust layer. Use the bottom of a 1-cup measuring cup or a wide glass to press the graham cracker crumbs into the pan. This trick will make this step much faster and neater than trying to press the crumbs with your fingers.
- Take your time adding the cookie dough layer. Flatten clumps of the dough with your hands and then lay the pieces gently onto top of the cheesecake filling. You won&rsquot be able to spread the cookie dough on top. And dropping pieces of it into the filling will just make a big mess. Take your time here.
So there you have it! These cookie dough cheesecake bars are downright phenomenal and they&rsquore totally worth the little bit of effort they take to make.
Serve these cheesecake bars up with a glass of ice cold milk and like magic, everything will seem a little bit better! Okay, so I can&rsquot really guarantee these will brighten your mood, but trust me &ndash if there&rsquos a food that can, it&rsquos these chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars.
And if you&rsquove got cheesecake bar recipes on the mind (you&rsquore not alone!), I think you might also really love these cookie dough cheesecake s&rsquomores, these oatmeal chocolate chip cheesecake bars, and these maple streusel cheesecake bars.
