Magic Bar Tips

Here are a few tips that will help you make the best magic bars, the first time!

  • Collagen is not optional. If you don’t add the collagen to the condensed milk, it will turn out really thin.
  • Stir the condensed milk constantly. If you get distracted and stop stirring, it might get lumpy.
  • Use unsweetened coconut flakes: Don’t accidentally use sweetened coconut flakes, especially if you’re eating low-carn.

INGREDIENTS:

Crust

Condensed Milk

Toppings

  • 1 cup Lily’s Sugar- free chocolate chips
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

STEP 1: Prepare sweetened condensed milk. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add sweetener, collagen, and heavy cream. bring to a boil, stirring almost continuously.

STEP 2: Reduce heat & simmer for 35-45 min, stirring constantly, until the volume is reduced by half and the mixture is a light toffee color.

STEP 3: Prepare the crust. In a medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients, until well blended.

STEP 4: Then add butter and coconut oil and mist until moistened. 

STEP 5: Press the crust into a glass 9×13 baking dish firmly and evenly. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, until the edges are lightly brown. Let cool.

STEP 6: Pour 2/3 of condensed milk over cooled crust and spread in one even layer.

STEP 7: Sprinkle on chocolate, nuts, & coconut flakes, then drizzle with remaining milk.

STEP 8: Bake at 350 for 25 min. Or until lightly browned. Cool completely, then slice and enjoy!

    1. Hi Wendy – that’s a good question. First of all, I’m hoping you don’t eat the entire pan of Magic Bars in one sitting LOL! I kid, but I seriously do understand the question. There has been a lot of information about how unhealthy “fattening” products – like butter – are for you, and it’s been proven to be untrue. When your body becomes Thin Adapted, you need this fat to give you energy. Check out this article we wrote about healthy fats and other macronutrients. I hope it helps.

    1. Add it after the butter melts. We updated the recipe card and the content in the post so it’s more clear. So sorry about that!
