Nanaimo Bars And Sarah Kramer


Aren't these Nanaimo bars gorgeous?! They are are every bit as delicious as they look. The recipe is from Sarah Kramer (from her new book Vegan A Go Go), and I'm so excited that she shared it with Everyday Dish. Go check out the video (and recipe) now! You are going to love these bars!

I first had Nanaimo bars in 10th grade when I was living in Vancouver, B.C. My mom was participating in a Fulbright Exchange, and my brother and I were thrilled to go along for the ride. That incredible year in Vancouver was where I first fell in love with Nanaimo bars, the Pacific North West and tea (more about that in another post). I was sad when the year was over, although we went home with lots of memories, photos and a plethora of recipes that I had collected, including several for Nanaimo Bars. Yes, I know that I was only 16, but I was food and recipe obsessed from a very young age; ) Unfortunately none of the recipes were vegan so I am thrilled that Sarah has done the work for us.

Now, go check out that video!

My Canadian brother-in-law made some vegan Nanaimo bars this Christmas, just so I could have some too! They were awwwesome.

I just looked at the recipe and I am confused...it calls for butter and heavy whipping cream?! I know we can sub Earth Balance and soy milk (I guess?), but isn't this supposed to be a vegan recipe in the first place?

I love her freshness and her care free aproach to food and cooking and still keeping it vegan.
