January's challenge was a two part challenge:
So, what are Nanaimo bars? They are a Canadian no bake bar with three layers:
I used this graham cracker recipe provided by our host, but I used Earth Balance for the butter and Trader Joe's Maple Agave Blend for the honey. They were really simple to make and tasted great!
I used the Nanaimo bar recipe featured on Julies Hasson's EverydayDish TV , by vegan cookbook author Sarah Kramer. I used ground pecans instead of walnuts and used dark chocolate instead of unsweetened chocolate. This recipe is amazing! They are VERY rich, so I recommend cutting them into one inch squares.
