This month I’m sharing 12 Days of Christmas Cookies [5]!

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 [6] 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!


Stay tuned for more of the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies [5].
