Low Carb Magic Bars – Yum!

Magic Cookie Bars are one of my favorite treats. For a healthier option, see my Low Carb Magic Bars {Keto Friendly}!

Please note: We do not follow a strict Keto diet. I may offer shortcuts and tips for those on a busy schedule.

CRUST

Magic Bars (or Magic Cookie Bars, Hello Dollies, or Cookie Layer Bars)… we all have some variation of this dessert in our recipe box! I knew I had to come up with a low carb option, since these are just too good to give up!

The main unhealthy culprits in traditional Magic Bars are the sweeten condensed milk and the crust.  They are just full of sugar and carbs.  So, these are replaced with Keto friendly ingredients. Stick with me, since the bars have a few more ingredients than the traditional dessert.  But it’s well worth it!

Make It:

SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK

First you will make your crust layer.  For this I used Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, and Swerve Sugar Replacement.  Since this recipe is written for Swerve, using another sweetener may change results drastically. Do not substitute for other sweeteners.

LOW CARB MAGIC BARS EXTRA TOPPING

While crust is baking, mix up your “sweetened condensed milk”.  This is made up of Swerve Brown Sugar, Heavy Whipping Cream, Pink Himalayan Salt and vanilla. Again, do not substitute ingredients especially Swerve or Heavy Cream. You may end up with a much different consistency!

After your crust is golden brown but still soft, top with your Lily’s Chocolate Chips, pecans and unsweetened coconut.

LOW CARB MAGIC BARS CORNER COCONUT

Top with your sugar free Sweetened Condensed Milk, gently pouring over the coconut layer. Doesn’t this look amazing! I love how it thickens up into a syrup almost.

I always top with a little more coconut just to let it get crispy on top.  You can omit this step if you like the gooey layer on top! There’s no wrong way to stack these yummy toppings!

What I love about Magic Bars is that they look pretty just out of the pan… I like to use a pretty serving dish for these and just leave them in there. I always refrigerate mine, since they are just easier to cut if they are cooled.  You can eat them warm or chilled.

Be sure to include this in your spring dessert recipes! They are definitely guilt free compared to traditional Magic Bars!  I have been known to sneak one after breakfast with the last bit of my coffee too!!

My family started doing Keto in June of 2018. We chose to do Keto because my husband has Ankylosing Spondylitis and my son has horrible Psoriasis.

  1. On the magic bar recipe it says to use a 3×5 pan – I’m confused – can you clarify that please? Thanks!

  2. I was wondering if the coconut you show on your bars in the photo is Unsweetened or sweetened coconut? It looks like regular sweetened coconut, just curious. Also wondering if you could use a double recipe of the condensed milk topping so as to have a real thick gooey filling. I like lots of the gooey stuff! Anxious to try your recipe, Thanks so much for sharing it!
