Vegan Magic Cookie Bars |Cherish Recipes

I've got a bit of a sweet tooth as you may know.  When I came across this recipe my taste buds started to do a little dance.  I hope you enjoy this dessert idea! 

Many thanks to team at for this gem.

Layers of graham crackers, walnuts, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut make these bars one of our favorite desserts.

Makes 24 bars

What You Need:

For the sweetened condensed milk:
1-1/2 cups vegan milk, plus more if needed
3 tablespoons vegan butter
1/2 cup coconut or granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla 

For the bars:
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (or any cinnamon based biscuit)
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Vegan Milk (recipe above)

What You Do:

1. For the sweetened condensed milk, into a slow cooker, place milk, butter, and sugar, and stir well. Cook on high for 1-1/2 hours, uncovered, stirring every 30 minutes. Add vanilla and mix. Pour in a measuring cup to ensure you have 14 ounces, adding more milk if necessary.

2. For the bars, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan, pour melted butter and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs, walnuts, chocolate chips, and coconut. Evenly drizzle condensed milk over top to cover entire pan. 

3. Bake for 25 minutes, and let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Cut into bars and serve.




Palak (Curried Spinach) | Cherish Recipes | Vegan

With thanks to for this idea! 

  • ½ cup/70g cashews

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ small red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 inch/2 cm fresh ginger, roughly chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed, or ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3½ cups/800g spinach
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg


This is so easy!

It goes well with a simple “rice” and a curry sauce. You can also eat it over a salad or use it as a thick dip for sprouted bread/crackers or veggies.

To be honest though, it could easily be a main course on its own – it’s so delicious and filling.
