This month I’m sharing 12 Days of Christmas Cookies !
I love Magic Bars. When I was pregnant with FishChick2, I ate half a pan all by myself — in one sitting. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling too well that afternoon when I went in for my OB check-up. And Dr. Arroyo was none too happy, either.
But, he knew exactly what kind of cookie bar I was talking about. Oh yes, yes, he did.
This year I decided to make these bars with a little twist. We are omitting nuts and eggs from the bulk of our diet to accomodate FishChick’s food allergies. And since these are already egg-free, it’s easy to make them nut-free as well.
I made another tweak in using Oreo cookie crumbs instead of graham crackers and unsweetened instead of sweetened coconut.
Quite frankly, this cranberry cinnamon version  from Our Best Bites is what inspired me to try a different flavor combo. I was surprised that their order of ingredients is different than the one I’ve always used. Cool. I didn’t know you could make them different ways.
I imagine you could make all sorts of variations, mixing and matching different cookie crumbs, chips, nuts, and dried fruit.
And, can I just say they taste fantastic, cold from the freezer? Oh my!
