Magic Cookie Bars!!!

My friend Annie shared this Delicious recipe with us....She shared.....
I have always loved these, well,.. the unhealthy ones. I found a recipe that is healthy and won't put my weight loss to stall! While baking these, they smelled just like the old bars, and these taste a bit better too!

1 3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup truvia
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp molasses
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips
3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 recipe low carb sweetened condensed milk (recipe below)
Preheat oven to 325 F.
For the crust, Mix together almond flour, truvia and coconut flour. Add melted butter and molasses and mix till crumbly. Pat in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan. Press firmly and evenly into the bottom of the pan.
Bake crust for 12 minutes, or until it begins to brown around the edges. Remove and let cool.
Increase oven temperature to 350 F.
Sprinkle cooled crust with chopped chocolate, coconut and nuts. Pour sweetened condensed milk over top and bake for 20-25 minutes, until mixture is bubbly and beginning to brown.
Let cool and cut into 24 bars.

1 cup whipping cream
1 cup almond or coconut milk
1/2 cup truvia or desired sweetener
1 Tbsp butter
1/8 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup truvia or desired sweetener to taste
In a medium heavy saucepan, combine cream, milk and 1/2 cup truvia over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring often, until mixture is reduce by half. Do not scrape the sides of the pot where dried milk is, it will make the condensed milk gritty.
Add butter and whisk till melted, then whisk in xanthan gum. Let mixture cool to room temperature and stir in vanilla and sweetener.
