Nanaimo Bars Recipe ( Eggless) | How to make Nanaimo Bars | Stepwise Pictures

Hi Supermoms,

I had made this  delicious dessert few days ago for a pot luck party .  They were crunchy, chocolatey and the custard layer was simply unique. The Nanaimo Bars is a popular and favourite dessert of Canada.   

Nanaimo Bars originated from the Canadian west coastal city of Nanaimo in British Columbia. The uniqueness of this dessert is that it combines three favourite confections into one. A wafer crumb/biscuit based layer, a custard based layer and different types of chocolates on the top. The city of Nanaimo is so proud of this dessert that tourists to this city can even venture on Nanaimo Bar Trails that takes them across the city experiencing many delicious and creative interpretations of this iconic bar. 

Well you don't need to go so far now. With the recipe below, you can now make it at home and experience what millions of Canadians enjoy. Though the original recipe calls for eggs, this is an eggless version. 

Nanaimo Bars Recipe ( Eggless):

Preparation time : 20 minutes
Cooking time : 3-4 hours
Makes : 30 bars
Special vessel : Square shape baking tin/tray

Recipe Adapted from

Ingredients :

For the walnut layer :

1 cup coconut ( freshly grated )
1/2 cup walnuts ( finely chopped)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
150 gm Chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter ( softened)
2 cups biscuits ( crushed)
milk (adjust, optional )

For the custard layer :

2 tablespoons custard powder ( I used Vanilla flavour)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

For the chocolate Layer :

100 grams chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter ( softened)

Method :

1. Layer a square shape  6"-8" tray with parchment paper or butter paper.

2. For the biscuit layer, add the chocolate and butter in a large microwavable bowl and microwave in high for one minute or till the time the butter melts completely.

3. Remove and stir well using a fork.

4. Add the vanilla essence, walnuts, coconut , biscuit crumbs and mix well ( add few teaspoons of milk if the mixture is too dry).

5. Transfer them to the layered baking tray and spread them uniformly.

6. Using the back of the ladle or spoon, press gently so that the mixture is tightly packed .
7. In a pre heated oven, just bake this layer for 7-8 minutes only at 180 degrees C  .
8. For the custard layer , add the custard and milk and mix well.

9. Stir in the powdered sugar little by little and beat to make a thick custard layer.
Chef tip : Keep adding sugar till the custard layer is thick . Add less milk in the first place. If you have an electric beater, beat the mixture till he mixture is well combined and thick.
10. Once the biscuit layer completely cools, spread the custard layer uniformly without any gaps.

11. Place the tray in a refrigerator for at least one hour for the custard layer to set.
12. For the chocolate layer, heat the chocolate and butter in a microwave for one minute, mix well and pour it over the custard layer.

13. Refrigerate the dessert for at least 3 hours for the layers to set.
