Nanaimo Bars Directions
Make the crust
Add almond flour, coconut flakes, sweetener, butter, Cacao Bliss or cocoa powder, sugar free maple syrup and salt a food processor. Pulse until combined.
Press crust into a dish
Line a square baking dish with two sheets of parchment paper. Press crust into the dish using a greased spatula (to prevent sticking). Freeze for 20 minutes to set.
Make buttercream custard filling
In a medium bowl, cream softened butter until light and fluffy using an electric mixer. Add in heavy cream and pudding mix and continue to beat until combined. Slowly add in powder sweetener and continue mixing until fluffy.
Spread custard layer
Spread buttercream custard layer on top of the crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
Make chocolate ganache
Add sugar free chocolate and butter to a small bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
Spread ganache layer
Pour melted chocolate all over custard layer and spread evenly. Place back in the refrigerator to harden for 25 minutes. Cut into squares to serve.
