Paleo Gingerbread Pecan Magic Bars

  • Author: Kelsey




  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil (at room temp)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup


  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans


Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk:

  • In a small saucepan combine coconut milk and maple syrup.  Whisk them together on high until it boils, then reduce to a simmer and let cook and thicken for 40-60 minutes. 
  • Pour it into a glass jar and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to cool down.
  • Once cool it should be the consistency almost of molasses – thick and smooth!   If it isn’t, put it back on the heat to thicken it again.


  • Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.   
  • Combine crust ingredients and press into the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Add chocolate chips, coconut and pecans.  Pour the coconut sweetened condensed milk evenly on top.
  • Place the bars back in the oven for 10 minutes.


  • Store in the refrigerator!
