Low Carb Magic Bars

Low Carb Magic BarsLow Carb Magic Bars.  This is my rendition of the famous Eagle Brand recipe for Magic Bars.

I personally never count calories because if you are really and truly eating LCHF calories do not matter.  You get and keep that “full feeling” from the fat you are eating.  Now I will admit these are not for the faint of heart if you are paying attention to calories and if you do then these are not for you but man oh man these are good, good, good and if nothing else you can use Step 1 to make Sweetened Condensed Milk.

I am betting from the number of servings (30) and the size of the pan that one Eagle Brand portion is about the size of a postage stamp.  Good luck on that one.  Apples to Apples about two servings of the original to one of mine with ten times the carb count.  Yikes!

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

  2. Add chocolate chips & sweetener.
  3. Stir until all chips are melted.
  4. Add three nuts & coconut and mix thoroughly.
  5. Spread over crust.
  6. Spread “sweetened condensed milk” on top.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees about 20-25 minutes or until topping just begins to hint at brown in spots.

Comparison
  1. Mine: 12 Servings 361 Calories, 1g Protein, 6.6g Carbs, 2.6g Fiber, 4g Net Carbs

  3. Each serving of the original Eagle Brand Magic bar is about the size of a postage stamp so let's get real here. Most people would eat 3-4 servings for a total of 60g-80g net carbs...and that's just for dessert.
