Vegan Nanaimo Bars

Hello!

Today, I am grappling with two concerning questions…

1) How is it only 8 days until Christmas?

2) Where did 2010 go? I was just getting used to writing 2010 and now it is almost 2011!

Am I the only one who is a bit freaked out by this?

I can finally say that TODAY is the the very last day to vote in the entire Project Food Blog contest! Rejoice. Tomorrow the result is announced at 3pm EST. I think I shall hide under my desk with a blanket over my head.

Today, it is indeed hip to be square.

It’s time for Part two of the vegan Nanaimo Bars! For Part 1, see how to make the Vegan Graham Crackers.

You start by mixing your coconut milk, vanilla extract, and custard powder together in a small bowl.

With a mixer beat the Earth Balance/butter until smooth, and then add in this coconut milk/custard mixture. Mix well and gradually add in the sifted icing sugar.

Wheeeeee.

Your middle layer should look like this…if making Classic vanilla.

IMG_5716

and like this if making the Mint Chip…

IMG_5740

and like this if you are making the Pomegranate Almond…

IMG_5903

Now set middle layer aside and make the base layer.

In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the butter, sugar, and sifted cocoa powder.

IMG_5682

Now add in the flax egg.

IMG_5692

It will sort of gel up a bit and change in consistency. This is totally normal. At least, that’s what I tell myself.

IMG_5706

Now remove from heat and grab your coconut, processed almonds, and graham wafer crumbs.

I used homemade Vegan Graham Crackers and processed them in a food processor.

IMG_5691

Process your almonds…

IMG_5702

and grab your coconut.

IMG_5703

Add all three to the saucepan mixture and stir well. When it gets too thick get in there with your hands and squeeze it all together.

IMG_5707

Grab your 8 inch by 8 inch lined pan and dump the base layer mixture into the pan.

IMG_5710

Press it down as much and as evenly as you can. I also used my pastry roller to smooth it out. The goal is to make it level!

IMG_5712

Now grab your middle layer filling that you so conveniently prepared in advance and scoop it onto the base layer.

Smooth it out….

IMG_5866

[Note: Above photo is Mint Chip filling]

Vanilla filling will look like this:

IMG_5718

IMG_5522

Now melt your Earth Balance/butter and chocolate together in a double boiler or bowl in the microwave and spread it all over the top of the middle layer:

IMG_5936

It will look a bit like this:

IMG_5800

Dreamy!

IMG_5802

Now place in the freezer to set for about 45 mins-1 hour.

That’ll do.

IMG_5863

Let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve chilled (because the filling melts at room temperature).

IMG_6097-2

Now prepare yourself for a life long addiction to the Nanaimo bar goodness! I need a support group.

I don’t know how anyone can NOT vote for you after your behind the scenes post yesterday! Seriously, I knew that you must put in some effort for your beautiful photos, but I had NO idea!! You deserve to win for that alone. But, these nanaimo bars? Um, wow.

One question – why would light coconut milk not work? I’m always confused when recipes say this. Is it just that it would be really thin? Could you add more custard powder?

Reply

32 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2010

light coconut milk is quite watery….whereas the full fat has a wonderful cream on the top of the can. It is best to bake with in this recipe, and in many, just for consistency

Omg these look awesome!

I have a recipe for Vegan, GF Creme de Menthe bars…in fact, it’s up on my site right now in a post about 12 days/recipes of Xmas. I truly love creme de menthe bars and altho I have never had a nanaimo bar, I can kinda imagine there is some similarity! With the mint version, of course.

The pom-almond. Oh boy. Oh my! I JUST want to eat that with a spoon.

Or even the crust layer. Or the choc layer. Each layer is just….perfect!!!

Hoping it’s ok for me to give you a shout out in a post I have going out tomorrow about friends’ recipes I am dying to make…you have a zillion I am eyeing :)

And here’s to lots of VOTES for you!!!!!! You deserve the Win, my friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best of luck tomorrow, I really hope you win! Lovely lovely nanaimos! Question: I don’t know if this is nanaimo blasphemy, but I really dislike coconut. I love everything else about nanaimo bars but I always end up leaving the base. Do you know if there’s something I could sub in for the coconut, or if it would work without coconut? I really want to try these out!

First, I wanted to tell you that while I’ve popped onto your site over the past year or so occasionally, the contest has absolutely made me fall in love with it. My son has a dairy allergy, so I am always looking for vegan ideas that someone actually tests and loves that aren’t so “out there.” (Sometimes vegan cooking can be something you get accustomed to, not something that you are drawn too…at least to me.) Anyway, just wanted you to know that your hard work has won me (and I’m sure many people) over.

Second, how the heck do you say Nanaimo?

Third, what is custard powder, is it at Whole Foods or ?, and it is dairy-free?

Thx

Nanaimo.

52 Baking 'n' Books December 16, 2010

I’m not sure where the year went too. Let alone the month of December! It’s scary and sad that Christmas is only next week – I wish every month were the Holidays ;)

Second of all – it’s the same age old question I ask all you big bakers….HOW THE HECK DO YOU STOP YOURSELF FROM EATING WHILE (and what) YOU’RE BAKING??!! With mixes that good?

Seriously…can someone fill me in? Because it actually SCARES me off from baking. Clearly, I have NO self-control and am beyond pathetic. I already know, you don’t have to tell me.

Reply

53 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 16, 2010

I think because I am around it SO much, it honestly doesn’t really phase me much anymore. Sometimes I actually find myself sick of it because I am constantly baking and around it all the time. I always sample what I make, but most of the time Im not overly tempted because it is always in the house so I guess it doesnt seem like ‘naughty food’ to me like it did at one time. My biggest weakness when baking is probably cookie dough though! That is hard to resist no matter what :)

Any idea what I could replace the nuts with to make it nut free? My first thought was oats, but I won’t be able to use those either… Do you think I could just use a bit more of the graham and coconut to make up for the loss of nuts?

Thanks in advance – these look delicious and I’d love to give them a try!

Thank you so very much for sharing your recipes! It’s been years since I’ve had Nanaimo bars, and these were everything I remembered them to be. Amazing. Swapped out the nuts for more graham, and you were right, it worked out just perfectly :)

Reply

105 Leigh December 3, 2013

I am beyond thrilled to make these bars… It’s a yearly tradition in our house to have these bars at the holidays.

I imagine you could make a mocha like flavour with the addition of some (good tasting) instant coffee powder and maybe even some coffee liqueur for the adults? I don’t even like coffee so I won’t be trying to make it. NO WAY will I have Nanaimo bars in my house I can’t eat. Peanut butter flavour on the other hand I might try to create!

You should promote this post to the top for Holiday Treats 2013…

Yay Angela – Nanaimo bars!!

I made these a few days ago to bring to my work. I work at a gluten free seafood restaurant and one of the staff is celiac. I’m the only vegan who works there so I thought I’d make these and wow them. I substituted everything for gluten free and they turned out perfect. They were gone in a day (only 8 people work there, including myself) and everyone wants the recipe! Success! Thank you!

These look amazing! My husband loves nanaimo bars and I’ve been looking for a vegan (and gf) recipe. He’s allergic to coconut though. I don’t suppose another milk (almond, soy) would work instead of the coconut milk, do you think?

Reply

113 Paula December 17, 2015

I have to say, I’m the teeniest bit disappointed with this recipe! By teensiest I mean that I am still happy with it, but not 5 star worthy. I guess this is also from 2010 so I should account for that, but literally every recipe I’ve made from your blog I have followed to a T and LOVED and made over and over and bragged about to my friends about. I don’t want to come across as unsatisfied because I must say that I am still absolutely THRILLED with the fact that you’ve created a vegan nanaimo bar <3 <3 <3 (where the flavours are amazing!), however the top layer of chocolate is just….. meh. I had a really hard time spreading the chocolate, and whilst i was going as quick as possible i found it was bunching up and didn't even cover the whole surface of the bars! Usually your write ups are so spot-on that I know what to expect (gel consistency of flax egg etc.) but I felt a bit different with this one.

Just a little feedback! Thank you for every recipe you post. I am currently eating the DIY Burrito bowl and baking the Raspberry Almond Thumbprint cookies. (I'm seriously obsessed with your blog Angela!)

I’m hoping to try this recipe for New Years Eve :)
Do you think I could sub the sugar and icing sugar? Probably not with any of the liquid sweeteners like maple or honey… Have you tried it with coconut sugar… Would it work to powder it for the icing sugar?
