Gluten-free Vegan Magic Bars

2 cups blanched almond flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup honey
3 Tbsp. melted non-dairy butter substitute
1/4 tsp. kosher or fine sea salt
1 cup coconut milk – shake can well before measuring
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
2 cups dairy free chocolate chips
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained, patted dried and quartered
1 cup sliced or slivered almonds
1-1⁄2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9- by 12-inch baking dish with gluten-free non-stick cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, mix the almond flour with the sugar, honey, melted non-dairy butter substitute and salt until well combined. Moisten hands with water and pat the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, honey, and cornstarch. Pour over the almond crust. Sprinkle the chocolate chips, cherries, almonds, and coconut evenly over the top. Gently press down. Bake for 35–40 minutes or until the almonds and coconut flakes are browned and toasty. Let cool. It is easier to cut into squares if you refrigerate for about an hour to let everything set. Cut into squares. Make 12 three-inch squares.
