A remake of the classic Magic Bars, these Healthy Magic Bars replace the sugary ingredients with healthy, high-protein deliciousness!
Instead of a graham cracker and butter crust, I used a high-protein crust with a few drops of butterscotch flavoring. Instead of chocolate chips, I used homemade raw chocolate chunks. And instead of sweetened condensed milk, I used a natural vanilla whey protein. Magical, indeed!
