There are a lot of variations of these bars and this is the one I like the best. Most call for condensed milk, but I replaced that with a heavy coconut milk (I used the wrong one for the picture, sorry)- and as you can see from my ingredient photo, I used a graham cracker pie crust because all the regular crackers had honey in them. You can also change out the type of nuts. I chose chopped almonds because they were the cheapest in the bulk bins.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Margarine, melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/2 Can Regular Coconut Milk (not light)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Coconut Flakes
  • 1 1/2 Cup Chopped Almonds
  • 1 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350. Pour margarine into baking dish and sprinkle with graham crackers crumbs. Add coconut milk, even it out with a spatula. Top with coconut flakes, almonds and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Step 2

Lightly pack down the ingredients with a spatula.

Step 3

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool completely.
