See these? These are really good. I mean really good.
They are your traditional Magic Bars, also known as Seven Layer Bars, but with a twist. I used Oreo cookie crumbs instead of graham crackers for the crust. They were absolutely amazing.
Another twist was that instead of your grocery store variety, sweetened coconut flakes, I used shredded, unsweetened coconut from Tropical Traditions. While the bits are a little tinier than the flaked coconut I’ve bought in the past, this product blended really well into the Double Chocolate Magic Bars.
And since the coconut was unsweetened, I felt a little bit better about eating half the pan. I mean, certainly, that was less sugar than the other way, right?
I’ve had the opportunity to sample a number of coconut products from Tropical Traditions and I’ve been really pleased. I love the way these ingredients work into my recipes. And if you’re looking for coconut recipes, check out their recipe database for inspiration.
This weekend, one Good Cheap Eats reader will win a container of shredded coconut.
