Nut-Free Seven-Layer Bars

Written by Team Safe+Fair Date September 24, 2018

These seven-layer bars replace nuts with salty pumpkin seeds and are very easy to make with the help of a semi pre-made crust, easily made with crushed up Abby's Shortbread Cookies.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (or 10 oz) SAFE + FAIR Abby's Shortbread Cookies
  • 5 T. unsalted butter, melted
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

    Making a 7-Layer BarDirections

    • Crush the cookies in a food processor or by hand with a meat tenderizer.
    • Add the melted butter and stir.
    • Pat down in a 9 x 13 glass or metal pan and cook for 7 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
    • Once finished, add the sweetened condensed milk and smooth it out evenly over the cookie crust with a spoon.
    • Top with the chocolate chips, coconut flakes (optional) and pumpkin seeds.
    • Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
    • Sprinkle with sea salt and cool before cutting.

    Nut-Free 7-Layer BarGrowing up, I used to love Seven Layer Bars. The buttery cookie crust pairs so deliciously with the gooey condensed milk/chocolate filling and the salty nuts on top. Having kids with life-threatening nut allergies, I've crossed these off my list for years. But with some easy substitutes, I found a reason to bring them back.
