Vegan Magic Cookie Bars

Layers of graham crackers, walnuts, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut make these bars one of our favorite desserts.

Makes 24 bars

What You Need:

For the sweetened condensed milk:
1-1/2 cups vegan milk, plus more if needed
3 tablespoons vegan butter
1/2 cup coconut or granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla 

For the bars:
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Vegan Milk (recipe above)

What You Do:

1. For the sweetened condensed milk, into a slow cooker, place milk, butter, and sugar, and stir well. Cook on high for 1-1/2 hours, uncovered, stirring every 30 minutes. Add vanilla and mix. Pour in a measuring cup to ensure you have 14 ounces, adding more milk if necessary.

2. For the bars, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan, pour melted butter and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs, walnuts, chocolate chips, and coconut. Evenly drizzle condensed milk over top to cover entire pan. 

3. Bake for 25 minutes, and let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Cut into bars and serve.
