Nutty Primal Nanaimo Bars (Buttercream Version)

Posted in Uncategorized by The Girl on March 6, 2010

Crust

* 1 cup brazil nuts
* ½ cup coconut oil
* dash salt
* 1 tbsp stevia extract
* ¼ tsp vanilla
* 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Blitz brazil nuts until a course powder. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto a greased (with butter or coconut oil) cookie pan (9×9). Bake for 25 minutes at 350’F. Cool and chill.

Buttercream Layer

This is not really a custard; but the original Nanaimo bar custard layer isn’t really a custard either. So go ahead and enjoy!

* 1 1/8 cup butter, soft
* ¼ tsp vanilla
* 1 1/3 tbsp stevia extract (or another sweetener to taste)
* ¼ cup coconut flour

Whip the butter in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto chilled crust layer and return to fridge to chill more.

Hard Chocolate Topping

* ½ cup coconut oil
* 3/8 cup cocoa powder
* ½ tsp vanilla
* ½ tbsp stevia extract

Melt all ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat. Cool slightly. Spoon over well-chilled custard layer. Chill further!

When the final layer is hard (about 20 minutes); cut into squares and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.

Here’s the Cheesecake Alternative Recipe:

Cheesecake Layer (instead of custard)

* 3/4 cup butter, soft
* 1/8 cup almond butter (or another nut butter of your choice)
* 1/8 cup cream cheese
* ¼ tsp vanilla
* 1 1/3 tbsp stevia extract (or another sweetener to taste)

Whip the butter in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto chilled crust layer and return to fridge to chill more.
