Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars Without Coconut

Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars without Coconut

With the hot weather we’ve been having, I thought I would make a no-bake dessert. Nanaimo bars are a Canadian treat. I substituted the traditional packaged pudding (or packaged pastry cream, depending upon brand) with gluten-free cream cheese (just 2 tablespoons). You can always use your own homemade custard. Mothers and grandmothers used to make these for their kids beginning in the 50’s and 60’s, and some still do. I made them without coconut, due to food allergies. Shredded coconut is usually used in the bottom layer. I substituted coarsely chopped almond meal. You can use regular. I just ground my own. This is a special treat that everyone can enjoy because you can change ingredients fairly easily to allow for food allergies. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Nanaimo Bars Without Coconut”

I not only enjoyed the brownies, but I really liked the fact that there was not a lot of mess to clean up as I went along. Continue reading “Chewy Gluten Free Brownie Recipe”
