“I did a combination of two recipes, peanut butter cookies with three ingredients and magic cookie bars. My brother-in-law loves magic cookie bars but is now gluten-free. I have been trying to come up with desserts for him so he doesn't feel left out. This is an amazing dessert and will stay fresh for days...if they last that long in your house! Perfect for Passover - no flour!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Mix sugar and eggs together in a bowl until smooth; stir in peanut butter until well blended. Pour peanut butter mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookie base is partly cooked, 8 minutes.
  4. Layer semisweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, pecans, almonds, and coconut onto the cookie base. Slowly pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the toppings.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until coconut is slightly brown, about 30 minutes.
  6. Cool completely before removing cookie bars from pan. Peel away parchment paper and cut into small squares using a sharp knife.

I absolutely appreciate that someone took the time to find a gluten-free alternative crust to these bars. Thank you for offering an idea I would never have thought of on my own! After having made them, I believe that the peanut butter cookie base makes the squares far far too sweet and rich, and the peanut taste totally overpowers the rest of the nuts in the bars. At least for my tastes, anyway. My husband and his dad liked them, but they could only eat one square at a sitting. My oven sucks, so I only realized later that the cookie base didn't cook/set as much as I would have liked. I would recommend longer than 8 minutes, and at a higher temp to at least set the PB. **It was easy to make and prep.** If you don't normally have these ingredients in your cupboard, you can save money by only buying the amount you need in the bulk section of your grocery store. I am going to try to find a gluten-free crust that is more like the original base I knew and loved when I ate gluten. Something less overpowering than the peanut butter. All in all, nice to be able to make something to take to holiday parties that was gluten-free, but not many people ate them, and no one took a second.

Oh my goodness...these are delicious! I had some all natural almond butter that I needed to use up, so I used 1 cup almond butter and 1 cup creamy peanut butter. The rest I did exactly what the recipe said. They are very rich and yummy!

I make these for My Brother in Law who is Gluten Free. You can "tweak" the recipe and add tons of different kinds of nuts and chocolate candies and carmel on top. I switch it up all the time. Works best with parchment paper in the bottom of the pan. Enjoy!
