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.
