These Keto Magic Bars really live up to their name and no…it’s not an illusion. Yes, they are “keto”, yes they are delicious and yes they will disappear without a trace!
PREP TIME: 10 MINS COOK TIME: 30 MINS TOTAL TIME: 40 MINS
1 cup almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup Swerve Brown Sugar (you can also use any granulated erythritol)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Top Layer Fillings:
9 oz bag dark chocolate chips
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup pecan pieces
For the crust:
1. Preheat oven to 300° F.2. In a medium bowl mix together the crust ingredients until a ball of dough forms. Press the dough into an 8 inch cast iron skillet. Poke a few small holes in the crust with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes until slightly golden.
For the condensed milk:
1. place all ingredients in a tall sided pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling continue to boil for 5 minutes stirring frequently. After 5 minutes it should have reached the consistency of condensed milk or a thick caramel sauce. Set aside to cool.
1. Place the pecan pieces, coconut, and chocolate chips on top of the crust. Pour over the condensed milk and return to oven for 5-7 minutes. 2. Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes before cutting into bars.
NOTE: Some folks have mentioned that their sauce just sits on top like a crust. If this happens your “condensed milk” probably cooked just a little too long. No worries though, just mix the sauce into the toppings a bit before placing back in the oven so that everything mixes together.
