Seven Layer Cookie Bars – GF

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.   Genesis 2:2 (NKJV)

Seven has always been one of my favorite numbers because it is God’s perfect number.  His creation story is seven days, the Israelites marched around Jericho for seven days, we are to forgive seventy times seven, etc.  Use this recipe with your kids as a fun way to discuss these Bible stories!

These Seven Layer Cookie Bars are gluten-free when made with an 8 oz. box of gluten-free graham crackers.  S’moreables was the brand I found at our local co-op.

Last week I shared a fairly healthy date bar recipe with plenty of oats and dates for fiber.  This week I have for you a treat more on the candy-bar lines.  Better cut this one into small pieces to enjoy during the holidays!

Seven Layer Ingredients:
1) 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2) 1 – 8 oz. box graham crackers, crushed into crumbs
3) 1 cup coconut
4) 1 cup chocolate chips
5) 1 cup butterscotch chips
6) 1 can sweetened condensed milk
7) 1 cup nuts, chopped

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Place butter in 9 x 13 inch pan and melt in oven.  Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over butter and mix to cover pan bottom.  Top with remaining layers in this order…coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, condensed milk and nuts.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting into bars.  Guard well!

p.s.  I’d love some comments on how to make this dairy-free, too!

But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times.  Joshua 6:15 (NKJV) 

Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-22 (NKJV)
