Naniamo Bars - Tried and Tested

I was recently approached by the people at Baking Mad to see if I’d be interested in trying one of their recipes in return for some baking goodies, not one to turn anything baking related away and loving a challenge I agreed.

I had a look through their massive collection of recipes, including cake recipes, traybakes, and sweets and chose something I had seen before but never tried.

The recipe sounded yummy and not too simple, meaning I could challenge my baking skills.

You can find the instructions over on the Baking Mad website but here is my take on the ingredients, as a few of my family don’t like walnuts, it still worked well though.


For the Base
75g Unsalted Butter 
100g Dark chocolate 
75g Digestive biscuits finely crushed 
75g Dessicated Coconut 
75g Flaked Almonds

For the Filling
1 Egg yolk
1tbsp Whole Milk 
1tsp Custard powder 
100g Unsalted Butter
Vanilla extract a few drops (I use Nielsen-Massey) 
150g Icing sugar (I use Silver Spoon) 

For the Topping
125g Dark chocolate

There is a really useful Enter Bake Mode on the Baking Mad website, which allows you to view the instructions whilst displaying the ingredients needed for that step.

Adding the top...

Naniamo Bars are a Canadian treat and well quite frankly a resounding success, we all enjoyed it and anyone who saw them wanted to know what the recipe was. The perfect treat to have with a nice cup of tea.

 NB: I was sent some baking goodies by Baking Mad, the rest of the ingredients were paid for by myself and I have received no other compensation for doing this..
