The Naughtiest Vegan Nanaimo Bars in Town

The fabulous cookbook, Ms. Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town! will be released in early September and is available now on Amazon.com for Pre-order. Ms. Cupcake will be available in hardcover and Amazon Kindle. The cookbook includes everything vegan from Jaffa Cakes to Nanaimo Bars, miam miam. I would like to share my Naughtiest Vegan Nanaimo Bars in Town and provide my input and tips about their dessert. I will also be including the cookbook review in a separate post, so stay tuned.

Ms. Cupcake vegan cookbook

This was my first time to make Nanaimo Bars or Nanaimo-style Saskatchewan Bars if you’re from Dog River (Corner Gas). This recipe is easily adaptable to be gluten-free with the simple substitution of gluten-free biscuits in the base. Nanaimo Bars consist of three layers, each with their own individual production process (none of which require baking though, making this a great recipe if you don’t have an oven available). I don’t make desserts very often, so I found that this dish required a few ingredients that I don’t typically keep on hand, like custard powder, digestive biscuits, desiccated coconut and flaxseed or flaxseed meal.

Ms. Cupcake Vegan Nanaimo Bars

Fortunately these ingredients are readily available at Amazon.com and select markets. The custard powder might be the most difficult ingredient to find, we bought Bird’s Custard Powder locally at World Market.

If you are unable to track down the custard powder, don’t worry because Ms. Cupcake has you covered:

“Canadians don’t always stick to the traditional custard version. Do as they do and switch the custard powder for dried coffee, mint extract or peanut butter.”

If you are making these for personal use (i.e., 2-3 pax or a couple), I would recommend halving the recipe. The cookbook states that the recipe makes 15-24 bars but I would say that those are generously sized bars (I can usually have about 1 piece a day). I went ahead and made the entire recipe and used a parchment-lined 13″x9″ baking pan. A rectangular pan is the traditional method, but if you are feeling playful you can also make them in smaller pans or different shapes. Using a Kitchen Scale (in grams) helps a lot with this recipe and would make halving the recipe even easier. This is our favorite kitchen scale (it’s beyond amazing):

Ms. Cupcake Vegan Nanaimo Bars

Earth Balance is the recommended vegan butter for this recipe but if you want your custard cream layer to be just a bit lighter and softer, I would advise using Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread with Flaxseed Oil since it’s about half the fat and calories of most Earth Balance vegan butters. With a dessert as decadent as this, it might just make them seem a little less guilty. My favorite part of these bars is the base layer: cocoa powder, crushed biscuits, coconut, walnuts and flaxseed meal. Walnuts are optional, but I recommend using them because they bring some additional texture to the base. I enjoy the base-layer so much that I might even consider making it on its own just to have around as a breakfast bar.

I was really pleased with this recipe, my Naughtiest Vegan Nanaimo Bars ended up looking and tasting fabulous. The only alteration I would suggest is to allow the bars to rest for 3 hours, or even overnight if you can resist the temptation to devour them or refrain from having a nibble, instead of the suggested 1 hour period. The extra time allows for the bars to set and ultimately slice just a little bit better. Properly covered and kept in the fridge, these should last up to 3 weeks.

Note, allow the bars to rest for 3 hours, or even overnight if you can resist the temptation to devour them, instead of the suggested 1 hour period. The extra time allows for the bars to set and ultimately slice just a little bit better. Properly covered and kept in the fridge, these should last up to 3 weeks.

The Naughtiest Vegan Nanaimo Bars in Town

Yield: 15-24

Ingredients

For the Biscuit Base:
2 tbsp ground flaxseed (Used Bob's Red Mill Organic Flaxseed Meal)
3 tbsp lukewarm water
100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar (any fine granulated sugar)
90g (scant cup) cocoa powder
250g (2 cups) rich tea or digestive biscuits, crushed (Used Belvita Breakfast Biscuit, Golden Oat)
200g (3 1/3 cups) shredded coconut (unsweetened)
100g (3/4 cup) chopped walnuts
For the Custard Cream Filling:
50g (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) vegetable fat (shortening)
600g (6 cups) icing sugar
5 tbsp custard powder (Used Bird's Custard Powder )
2 tbsp soya or rice milk
For the Chocolate Layer:
300g (1 1/2 cups) dairy-free chocolate chips or chocolate bars (Used Trader Joe's The Dark Chocolate Lover Bars)

Preparation

  1. Liberally grease, or line with parchment paper, a 33cm x 23cm (13” x 9”) cake tin "or baking pan."
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of lukewarm water. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. "If you're making the whole recipe, read further. Use a medium pan if you're halving the recipe." Over a low heat, melt the margarine in a "large" pan with the caster sugar and the cocoa powder. Remove from the heat and add the crushed biscuits, coconut, walnuts (if using) and flaxseed mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture using a "non-stick spatula" into the prepared cake tin and pop it into the fridge to chill for at least an hour.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the custard cream filling. Using an electric hand-held mixer, mix together the margarine, vegetable fat, icing sugar, custard powder and soya milk. The custard will resemble a soft buttercream. Take the biscuit layer out of the fridge and spread the custard cream across it evenly.
  5. Finally, for the chocolate layer, melt together the chocolate chips and margarine in a pan over a low heat. Spread the chocolate mixture evenly over the custard cream layer. Return the tray to the fridge. Allow the chocolate "and the bars" to firm up for about "3 hours or overnight" before slicing into it.

Notes

The cookbook states that the recipe makes 15-24 bars but I would say that those are generously sized bars. If you are making these for personal use (i.e., 2-3 pax or a couple), I would recommend halving the recipe. The quoted words are additional notes I've made.

Canadians don’t always stick to the traditional custard version. Do as they do and switch the custard powder for dried coffee, mint extract or peanut butter.

The recipe is easily adaptable to be gluten-free with the simple substitution of gluten-free biscuits in the base.

In Step 4, I used a KitchenAid 9-Speed Hand Mixer for the custard cream filling. Start lowest at 0-1, then about 2-3 until the custard resembles a soft buttercream.

    Oh my! These look so good! I need to get my hands on that cookbook!

  2. 2 vegan miam said at 10:12 am on August 15th, 2013:

    Thank you Jen! Stay tuned for an international giveaway this weekend (or probably tomorrow!). Will be giving away two of these cookbooks! x

  3. 3 Vegan Richa said at 11:14 am on August 15th, 2013:

    That is some some serious food porn! the book sounds like a winner. awesome step pictures.. i would probably be licking the containers so nothing goes to waste ;)

  4. 4 Erika @ The Pancake Princess said at 11:15 am on August 15th, 2013:

    Omg those look AMAZING. I can’t believe you could wait until it completely chilled before eating it! I would definitely want to dive right in!

  5. 5 vegan miam said at 11:19 am on August 15th, 2013:

    Haha, definitely “serious food porn!” Thanks for your comment! There are still a dozen bars left :( I don’t think I can finish them before I leave for Spain. Plus, they lasted up to 3 weeks!

  6. 6 vegan miam said at 11:22 am on August 15th, 2013:

    Hi Erika! Thank you! You can totally dive right in after an hour (suggested period), but the custard cream filling might slightly melt! Actually…I nearly dived right in….and a small part of the nanaimo bars broke and the filling melted. After leaving it overnight (or several hrs), it was easier to slice!

  7. 7 vegan miam said at 11:23 am on August 15th, 2013:

    Btw, I’ll be giving away these two cookbooks this weekend, so stay tuned! :)

  16. 16 flickingthevs said at 1:46 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    I have this book on my shelf and to my eternal shame haven’t cooked anything from it yet – I think it’s just that everything looks so good, I can’t choose what to go for! I do visit the Ms Cupcake shop though, and their cakes are great – and these look so insanely good!

  17. 17 vegan miam said at 1:49 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Really?! It is fun to make something no-bake and easy. Awesome, I had a guest blogger (from NZ, and now in London) last year who wrote about Ms. Cupcake bakery/shop, and I would love to visit that place someday soon!

  18. 18 vegeTARAian said at 1:50 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Woah, this looks insanely good! Definitely giving this a try

  19. 19 vegan miam said at 1:52 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Thanks! :) They are so filling… I still have a dozen left!

  20. 20 Tammy Zhong said at 2:40 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Definitely gonna give it a try with my vegan friends! As for me, it’s hard not to stay away from meat/dairy products, but I do my best to make ethical food choices. I can see this dessert recipe will be lovely to make a lot of because it makes me feel guilt-free: healthy & cruelty free to make :)

  21. 21 vegan miam said at 3:29 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Yay, Tammy, this will be a perfect dessert with your vegan friends plus they are filling and hearty! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  22. 22 Asha Shivakumar said at 3:39 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    The bar looks so decadent and delicious. Love em..I wouldn’t mind some. The book sounds interesting too.

  23. 23 Juliana said at 3:54 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Wow, these bars look great…I wish I could have a couple of them…
    Hope you are enjoying your week my dear :D

  24. 24 norma chang said at 4:25 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Those bars sure look decadent. Will they freeze well?

  25. 25 vegan miam said at 4:32 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Thanks Norma! I haven’t tried that method yet, but it was in the fridge for about 3 weeks now and still taste super delicious! I imagine they will freeze well to keep the bars in shape :)

  26. 26 vegan miam said at 4:32 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Thanks Juliana! Did you see the guest post about vegan eats in Seoul (previous post on my blog)? I thought you would like that one ;)

    Thanks, you, too! :)

  27. 27 vegan miam said at 4:33 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Thanks Asha! They are so good! This is author Mellissa Morgan’s first cookbook, she is originally from Canada so that gives you some insight into why the proprietor of London’s first vegan cake shop describes her baking as “classic North American with a British flavor twist.”

  28. 28 vegan miam said at 4:34 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Plus all desserts are vegan, and most of them can be made gluten-free easily with few substitutions.

  29. 29 Friska Wirya said at 5:21 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    I spent literally hours drooling over the images on your blog each day. Not good. It makes me mucho hungry! never heard of Nanaimo bars before I came across this recipe btw.. not very well known in Australia!

  30. 30 vegan miam said at 5:39 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Thanks Friska! The nanaimo bars are popular in Canada ;) Plus the cookbook author also has a Ms. Cupcake Bakery in Brixton, London ;) They are no-bake desserts and yummmmmm. Thanks for the love.

  31. 31 Koko said at 5:41 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    Classic Canadian Nanaimo Bars veganized…I LOVE IT!! These totally have me drooling!

  32. 32 vegan miam said at 5:42 pm on August 15th, 2013:

    This was my first time to have them! The cookbook author is Canadian ;) so I must imagine these are classic vegan nanaimo bars! ;) Miam!

    Why does summer have to be so short?! I”d love to make these before I go back to school, but I don’t think I’ll have time. :( Although, perhaps I could add some peppermint extract to the custard layer and sprinkle the top layer with crushed candy canes for a Christmas version when I come home for Christmas break! (I’m talking about Christmas in August… can you tell I’m excited already? ;) ) And love the idea to use peanut butter in place of custard powder… I’ll take any excuse to eat extra peanut butter! ;)

    I know, I can’t believe summer is nearly over… just less than 2 weeks. I will be in Spain this weekend, it will be a long flight from Oregon! Your peppermint filling sounds amazing, and PERFECT for Christmas!!! I wanted to put peanut butter instead (b/c I am craving for something peanut butter like you and probably some salty caramel in the layer), but thought a custard cream is worth a try!

  49. 49 vegan miam said at 8:29 am on August 16th, 2013:

    After I pinned this, someone pointed out that Bird’s Custard Powder is not vegan. Here’s a link to the ingredients that include whey protein and milk proteins:http://www.birdscustard.co.uk/range/custard-powder-and-instant/
    Is the a different version of this custard powder that you used? I’m trying to decide if I should take the pin down.

  65. 65 vegan miam said at 9:36 pm on August 17th, 2013:

    Hello! The one you looked at is different and is low-fat version. I used Bird’s Traditional Custard Powder. It contains fewer ingredients: Cornflour, Salt, Colour (Annatto), Flavouring. I hope this helps.

  66. 66 vegan miam said at 9:38 pm on August 17th, 2013:

    In the recipe, you can always use peanut butter and other kinds of fillings. “Canadians don’t always stick to the traditional custard version. Do as they do and switch the custard powder for dried coffee, mint extract or peanut butter.”
