What do Oreos, pretzels, peanuts, coconut, chocolate chips, coconut oil, & coconut milk all have in common?

They are all ingredients in THESE BARS!!

Have you had a 7 layer bar?

Have you? Those gooey sweet melt-in-your mouth dessert bars? The key ingredient in 7 layer bars is sweetened condensed milk. It’s the glue that holds it all together and the magic that makes the bars perfectly sweet.

So, if you’re like me and you can’t have dairy…well, IT’S SO SAD because it means no 7 layer bars…until NOW!

Coconut milk magic

Milk alternatives have become commonplace. Almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk– what’s your favorite?!

I’m a big fan of the coconut almond milk blend.

(Have you ever gone to a coffee shop and they DON’T have a non-dairy milk? It drives me nuts!)

I’m getting off-track, so, milk alternatives–

One of my favorite milk-alternative options is this sweetened condensed coconut milk!!! I just discovered this and I am SO EXCITED!!

Use this in any recipe that calls for sweetened condensed milk. Get ready, I’ll be making LOTS more and sharing them asap. CANT WAIT!!

How many layers?

7 layer bars get their name because they’re layered with 7 ingredients. These bars are more like 6 layers, but it’s 7 ingredients….so I think we’re A-OK to still call them 7 layers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dairy-free & Vegan!!

Did I mention they’re dairy-free and vegan-friendly? YAY!!!

Football

I’m calling them football bars because they’re snack-able, sharable, fun food that you can totally make for game day! They are especially brown, like the color of a football….that’s about all I got. They’re fun football food, hokay?! ๐Ÿ˜€

What You’ll Need

Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk!! This is the key magical ingredient. You could call it a secret ingredient…but you’d have to keep it a secret ๐Ÿ˜€ This is a 6-pack of cans. They keep for awhile, and it’s a great deal at about 2 bucks a can.

A 13×9 inch baking pan. I like this one because it has a lid! Super easy.

OREOS! I actually used Trader Joe’s Joe Joe cookies in this particular batch. Use your fav cookies ‘n’ cream sandwich cookies.

Let’s Bake!

Recipe: Vegan Chocolaty 7 Layer Bars

Dairy-free | Vegan
Makes 36-48 bars – they’re rich so just keep that in mind!

Ingredients:

30 Oreos or your favorite cookies n cream cookies
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 cups dairy-free chocolate chips
1 cup crushed pretzels
1 cup roasted peanuts– salted or unsalted
1 can sweetened condensed coconut milk
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut flakes

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line your 13×9 inch pan with parchment paper.

3. Put about 30 Oreos in a food processor and pulverize them into small crumbs, like sand.

4. Melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds in the microwave and mix it with the cookie crumbs.

5. Press this mixture into the parchment-lined pan – this is your Oreo crust!

6. Layer on the chocolate chips, peanuts, and crushed up pretzels.
7. Open the can of sweetened condensed coconut milk and drizzle it all over the bars. Do your best to spread it around to evenly cover the other ingredients. It’ll be super sticky, so just do your best!
8. Sprinkle on the shredded coconut! We put this on top so that it gets nice and toasty brown in the oven while the bars bake.
9. Bake the bars in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until the coconut is a nice toasty brown!

10. Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack or hot pad. This is one recipe that I actually recommend you let cool completely before cutting into it. That sweetened condensed milk gets super gooey while baking, so it’s best to let everything cool and set before slicing.
11. Slice into bars!! These are rich, so I like to cut them on the smaller side.

Serve & enjoy!!!

Store any leftover bars in an airtight container. They’ll last for about a week. They also freeze very well! I froze half the batch when I made them. Just put them in a freezer-safe container. Take them out on Saturday night, and they’ll be perfect for Sunday game-time!
