  1. I made these last night and had a problem with the crust separating from the other layers. Any thoughts? Also, the crust is a bit moist. Maybe it would work better if I cooked the crust in the oven for a bit before adding the other layers.

    Still very yummy, though! Thanks!

  2. @Kelly- mine did separate a little bit too, maybe try 1 egg white instead of 2? I am notoriously not the best baker so this was my best shot!

    1. I made paleo magic cookie bars back in October, and used 3 T coconut butter with 1 cup ground nuts for the crust (no egg whites), and didn’t have any trouble with the crust separating. It also helps to serve them slightly cool, since the coconut oil will be more solid and will hold the bar together better.

      They are addictive – you definitely have to keep them out of sight if you aren’t sharing them! Yum!

  3. I made these for my teen daughter to take to a Valentine’s party last night. Yummy! We will definitely make these again….although not too often as they are addictive.

    1. Yep, unsweetened! These babies are SWEET ENOUGH without any sweetened coconut, plus, I never buy sweetened coconut as it’s sweet enough on it’s own 🙂

  4. I know these are a treat and not to eat very often. But I just started eating paleo and I’m afraid I will want to eat these too often, they sound delicious. Can I switch out the pb chips with something else? And can I use ghee instead of regular butter?

    1. I wouldn’t make these for home-snacking, they are something great to bring to a party or BBQ though… so that there is a grain-free option for you to enjoy but not on which to overdo it in the house. These are LOADED with sugar and are not part of a regular healthy diet.

      PB chips were subbed IN for butterscotch chips in the original recipe, but you can use anything really- maybe even drizzle almond butter?

  5. With all the talk about phytic acid in nuts, just how many portions of a treat such as the above recipe should we have each day. These cookie bars are the best I have ever made.

    1. Each day?! LOL. These are more of a sugar-bomb than a phytic acid bomb if I ever saw one. When I made these, I cut them VERY small and brought them to a party. There’s NO WAY I could keep these in my house.

  6. What size pan is used? I’m new to Paleo and am going to try and make these for a football party on Sunday! I’m excited to try them!

      1. Thank you! Making them tomorrow – cannot wait! And I just took out my first effort of your grain free pumpkin muffins – looks great!
