magic cookie bar chocolate chip cookies Well, here we are folks.  It’s halfway into the first week of January.  I’ve been dreading this month.  Not because of  near impossible New Year’s resolutions or being tempted at every turn with sugar.  I’m worried about what I’m going blog about!  In case you haven’t noticed,  my blog is a diabetics nightmare.  Everyone is on a health kick!  I’m feeling like an outsider in this yoga pants wearing, smoothie drinking, meal replacement mentality.  A smoothie as a meal!?  That doesn’t make sense, unless it’s brownie batter.  Everybody is sipping on green smoothies while I’m over here licking raw cookie dough off a wooden spoon like it was my last meal.

But I’m still in yoga pants baby.

magic cookie bar chocolate chip cookies So let’s talk about these cookies.  Yes you…with the green smoothie.  Pay attention.  My inspiration was the Magic Cookie Bar.  They have always been my favorite dessert.  First, from the memories they bring me since my mommy makes the best Magic Cookie Bars.  Second, they have sweetened condensed milk people.  I could drink that stuff straight from the can.  Just kidding.  Sort of.

Even though its January, I still wanted to indulge.  But have no fear!  These are bite sized!  So instead of eating a whole pan of Magic Cookie Bars, and downing them with sweetened condensed milk, you can eat one or two of these Magic Cookie Bar Chocolate Chip Cookies and not feel like you killed that diet.  There’s tons of flavor in each one.  I mixed graham cracker crumbs in the dough just like the original, and topped them with condensed milk and toasted coconut.  They really do taste like the classic Magic Cookie Bar.
