  • Author: Loren
  • Total Time: 37
  • Yield: 12 bars 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


6 layers of gluten free vegan ingredients that turn the ordinary magic bar into extraordinary. These Better than Magic Bars taste just like a Snickers. 


  • 4 ounces of vegan butter (salted or unsalted works)
  • 1 cup of  vegan chocolate cookie crumbs (see notes)
  • 1 cup of flaked coconut
  • 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of dry roasted peanuts (see notes)
  • 1 can (10 ounces) of sweetened condensed coconut milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare an 8x8 baking dish by lining with parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter and pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle evenly in the following order on top of the butter- chocolate cookie crumbs, coconut, chocolate chips, peanuts
  4. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top, and spread evenly. 
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 15-20 minutes at room temperature and then place in the fridge to cool the remainder of the way. 
  6. These bars can be cut after they have cooled and hardened. Keep these in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days. Enjoy. 


  • I used Simple Mills Double Chocolate Cookies. This is a 5.5 ounce box of cookies. Place the cookies in a high powered blender or food processor and pulse until you have fine cookie crumbs with no chunks. The Simple Mills makes a little over 1 cup of crumbs store any leftover. 
  • The dry roasted peanuts should be the kind that only have peanuts and salt as ingredients
