Magic bars are one of the easiest treats you can make and I decided to give them a couple of twists. By using a plant-based butter and condensed coconut milk, I made them completely vegan. I also added some macadamia nuts and dried pineapple and mango to give them a tropical spin. —James Schend, Dairy Freed


  • 1/2 cup vegan butter-style sticks
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dairy-free white baking chips
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried mangoes, chopped
  • 1 can (11.6 ounces) sweetened condensed coconut milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a 9-in. square baking pan. On top of melted butter, sprinkle crumbs, then coconut, then baking chips, then macadamias, then pineapple and then mango. Pour well stirred coconut milk over all. Do not stir. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Cut into bars and serve.
