Nanaimo Bars

Ingredients

  • CRUST
  • 2 cups Western Family Almond Flour
  • 1 cup Western Family Fancy Shred Sweetened Coconut
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Western Family Vanilla Extract or 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
  • 4 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup Western Family Walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Western Family Flaxseed Meal
  • 5 tbsp Water
  • 1/3 cup Western Family Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, melted (measure when melted)
  • FILLING
  • 1/4 cup Western Family Butter, room temp.
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, room temp.
  • 1-3/4 cups icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp Western Family Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 tsp non-dairy (or regular) milk
  • pinch of tumeric for colour (optional)
  • TOPPING
  • 2 cups Western Family Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tbsp Western Family Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, melted (measure when melted)

Directions

  1. Line a 9×9 inch square pan with Western Family Parchment Paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut, vanilla powder (if used), chopped walnuts and sugar. Sift in the cocoa powder and stir.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the flaxseed meal and water and let stand for a few minutes until thickened. Add this to the dry mixture along with the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract (if used) and mix well. Firmly press the mixture into the lined pan to form the crust.
  4. Spread the frosting over the base to form the middle layer and place in the freezer for 15 to 320 minutes, until firmly set.
  5. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips and remaining coconut oil and allow to cool slightly before pouring the chocolate mixture over the middle layer. Put the pan into the fridge for about an hour to allow everything to set.

FROSTING

In a stand mixer, beat together the butter and shortening until soft and fluffy. Slowly add the sifted icing sugar 1/4 cup at a time and beat into the butter mixture. Stop to scape the sides often. Keep adding the icing sugar until all is fully incorporated (add a little milk when it starts to get too stiff). Add the vanilla extract to them mixture and mix well. Add more milk if needed and beat the mixture for 5-7 minutes until soft, light and fluffy.
