Creamy Nanaimo Bars

I have never eaten your traditional Nanaimo Bar. Being gluten free I never really could. So when Milan said you need to make a Nanaimo Bar, I was literally going in blind.

But you know what? I don’t know how, but it works, its creamy and delicious.

Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free and Refined Sugar Free. With every bite they get better and better.
