    Primal Fuel


    I found this recipe surfing this morning. I am half ashamed to put it out there because they look too tasty to be real and primal, but the ingredients say otherwise. I put these on my blog as well so that people can see that being Primal doesn't mean you have to stick your head in the sand. Quite the opposite once again!


    Nutty Primal Nanaimo Bars (Buttercream Version)


    Crust


    * 1 cup brazil nuts

    * ½ cup coconut oil

    * dash salt

    * 1 tbsp stevia extract

    * ¼ tsp vanilla

    * 2 tbsp cocoa powder


    Blitz brazil nuts until a course powder. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto a greased (with butter or coconut oil) cookie pan (9×9). Bake for 25 minutes at 350’F. Cool and chill.


    Buttercream Layer


    This is not really a custard; but the original Nanaimo bar custard layer isn’t really a custard either. So go ahead and enjoy!


    * 1 1/8 cup butter, soft

    * ¼ tsp vanilla

    * 1 1/3 tbsp stevia extract (or another sweetener to taste)

    * ¼ cup coconut flour


    Whip the butter in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto chilled crust layer and return to fridge to chill more.


    Hard Chocolate Topping


    * ½ cup coconut oil

    * 3/8 cup cocoa powder

    * ½ tsp vanilla

    * ½ tbsp stevia extract


    Melt all ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat. Cool slightly. Spoon over well-chilled custard layer. Chill further!


    When the final layer is hard (about 20 minutes); cut into squares and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.


    Here’s the Cheesecake Alternative Recipe:


    Cheesecake Layer (instead of custard)


    * 3/4 cup butter, soft

    * 1/8 cup almond butter (or another nut butter of your choice)

    * 1/8 cup cream cheese

    * ¼ tsp vanilla

    * 1 1/3 tbsp stevia extract (or another sweetener to taste)


    Whip the butter in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Spoon onto chilled crust layer and return to fridge to chill more.

    I've had Nanaimo bar ingredients laying around for almost a year because I feel too guilty to make them.


    I think this post just changed that.

    I've never even seen brazil nuts sold by themselves; I've only seen them as an ingredient in "party nuts"! I bet they're expensive, huh?
