True North Strong & Free - This Month's Daring Bakers Challenge

...is Nanaimo Bars.
Now, people who know me well understand that even though I adore baking, I don't have a massive sweet tooth... except when it comes to nanaimo bars. I don't know what it is. It is almost like eating pure sugar. But I do love them. Maybe it's the coconut. I am obsessed with coconut. It must be the coconut.

Anyhow, I was quite excited when I saw that this month's challenge was Nanaimo bars. What flavour variation would I choose? Luckly, these Canadian born confectionaries are quick and easy to do, I was free to make a few varieties. I decided to make the original version (for which a recipe follows), a peanut butter variety (who doesn't love the classic pb & chocolate combo) and a cappuccino flavour. I've got to say the peanut butter version was the most popular, and I had a hard time keeping my husband from eating them all before I had a chance to take my pictures.

The January 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Lauren of Celiac Teen. Lauren chose Gluten-Free Graham Wafers and Nanaimo Bars as the challenge for the month. The sources she based her recipe on are 101 Cookbooks and www.nanaimo.ca.
