Chocolate chip cookies are perfect and delicious on its own, there's no doubt about that! The ideas and the creations you can make with a chocolate chip mix are endless so what a about this seasonal inspiration; Magic Bars for this time of the year!


These are actually super easy to make and I will share some hacks! One of the best parts of this recipe is that nodoby will know that these are also gluten free, low carb and high protein. These are lower in sugar since we are using monk fruit instead or regular sugar too.



About these Pumpkin Magic Cookie Bars:

Let's go beyond the classic cookie sandwich and let's make instead this healthier and improved version of them! I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by just using Good Phats as my base, a chocolate chip cookie mix that will make things ever easier.


This cookie mix just saves us a lot of steps, ingredients and it also keeps things low carb. We are just adding some eggs and MCT (coconut oil and ghee also work!) for the cookies and the filling is also super simple to make and secretly packed with protein.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some greek yogurt for extra fluffiness and a satisfying filling. Also, I have been also obsessed with the Good Phats, the best chocolate chip mix and super versatile plus it's keto friendly... great great staple for fun recipes.


In the cookie mix I also included a touch of Coconut Mocha Super Coffee creamer, also with a touch MCT and keto goodness that will boost nutrition and flavor for this recipe. You can also use one tablespoon of vanilla almond milk.



Cookie and pumpkin topping with all the magic of coconut and chocolate chips, the perfect seasonal cookie! These are simply perfect for meal prep, no need to bake anything at all to enjoy and attack that sweet tooth at any moment. The base is soft and the filling of these is creamy thanks the the greek yogurt... also source of probiotics!


The topping of the cookie sandwiches:

The filling is made with simple ingredients; I'm using Marigold Creamy Vanilla Grass-Fed Whey Protein (PURELYHL for discount), greek yogurt pumpkin puree and monk fruit as simple as that. Simple base, low in carbs and thick thanks to the whey protein.
