Peppermint Nanaimo Fat Bombs ~ Vegan, GF

Ahhh the Nanaimo Bar, if you’ve never had one of these Canadian delicacies, you are missing out.  They can come in a variety of flavours such as mocha, peanut butter, maple and today I’m making my favourite – peppermint!  But these are even better – they are Nanaimo fat bombs!

They are sweet, chocolatey, coconuty, and my most favourite square dessert.  And they’re no-bake, you can’t go wrong with that! 

The traditional bar can set you back about 200+ calories with 15-20g of processed sugar.  I’ve lightened these up a bit

OK, a lot!

Only 1 gram of sugar per serving…ONE – and they also happen to be gluten-free and vegan.  You’re welcome 🙂Peppermint Nanaimo Fat Bombs ~ #keto #lowcarb #lowsugar #highfat

For the bottom layer
  1. 1 1/2 cups raw, unsalted almonds
  2. 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  3. 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  4. 1/4 cup organic cocoa powder
  5. 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  6. 15-20 drops liquid stevia*

For the middle layer
  1. 1 1/2 cups coconut butter

  4. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract or 2" scrape of vanilla bean
For the top layer
  1. 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips**
  2. 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  1. For the bottom layer, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Line an 8" x 8" baking dish with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into baking dish and place in the freezer to firm up.
  2. For the middle layer, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend well. Pour over bottom layer and place in freezer to harden. Make sure this layer has completely cooled before moving on to the top layer.
  3. For the top layer, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a bain-marie or double boiler. Spread this over the middle layer. Refrigerate until firm.
  4. Remove from dish and cut into squares. Enjoy!
  1. * To keep these low in sugar, I have used liquid stevia. You can substitute with honey or maple syrup if you prefer.
  2. ** I used Krisda sugar-free stevia chocolate chips. If you use regular chocolate chips, the nutritional info below will change.
