"It's so beautifully arranged on the the plate – you know someone's fingers have been all over it." – Julia Child

Our friend was having a bake sale at her daughter’s school during the primaries, and asked me to make something. I decided since Maria is Nicaragua visiting family, I’d go ahead and post my bake sale contribution. My friend and I were going back and forth on what to bake – Should I make cupcakes? Scones? Cookies? Or coffee cake? – These amazing bars got all the votes!

Heavenly Cookie Bars are perfect for a low maintenance dessert, and are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. They’re one of my favorite go to cookie recipes because they are quick and delicious.

In the end, the bars SOLD OUT and were a big hit!

 

HEAVENLY COOKIE BARS – (AKA MAGIC COOKIE BARS)

Makes about 2 dozen bars

  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 TBL flax meal
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecan, or walnuts are great)
  • 2 TBL chia seed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

13 x 9 inch baking pan

Pour the melted butter into the pan. In a medium sized bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs with the flax meal. Once combined, sprinkle evenly over the melted butter.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the graham cracker crumbs.

Layer the remaining ingredients as follows: chips, nuts, chia, and top with coconut flakes.

Press down firmly with your hands, or a fork.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until the top is a nice golden brown.

Let cool, and then cut into small squares.
