Are these frozen? Who cares! Reblog ALL the vegan junk food!
Believe it or not this is a VEGAN recipe. Nanaimo Bars are a three layer bar-style dessert with a chocolaty, nutty, graham crumb base, a vanilla custard-like buttercream layer, and a gloriously rich and smooth layer of chocolate glaze.

today’s october 1st, (well, it’s midnight october 2nd, we’re always late) you know what that means? it’s the vegan month of food! aka, vegan mofo. for the month of october, we’ll be doing some features of your least favorite foods, showing you how we make them into some tasty concoctions. hopefully it’ll inspire you to branch out and try experimenting with foods you’d normally not use.
let us know what your least favorite foods are at this post! (either through tumblr or through the comments.)
but getting to the actual post…!
one of the unpopular foods we tallied up is coconut. maybe it’s the texture, or the bold scent, i’m not sure, but i LOVE coconut. if you totally hate it, start out by adding coconut milk or shredded coconut into a sauce, like this amazing dum aloo we made a while back. pair it with some bold spices to temper the strong flavor while keeping a hint of coconut in the meal.
if you’re feeling into it, try these equally amazing coconut chocolate chip cookies! adapted from original recipe in la dolce vegan.
- 2 tbsp corn starch whisked slowly with 1 tbsp water
- 3/4 cup turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coconut extract
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
cream in 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp earth balance (vegan margarine) until everything is consistent, though it should still be crumbly. fold in 1/2-1 cup vegan chocolate chips. (just check the label of the chocolate chips to make sure there’s no milk or milkfat or anything.)
take a handful of the crumbly mixture and compress it into a ball. (i just made a fist around it and it formed together after a little smooshing.) fill a whole cookie sheet with the cookie dough - this recipe will make about 18 cookies. bake at 350F for ten minutes. (overcooking will burn the chocolate AND the coconut, so to stay on the safe side take them out even if they’re still pretty soft.) let the cookies sit on the tray for a minute or two, out of the oven, then carefully spatula them onto a cooling rack.
serve with some cold almond milk, and enjoy :)
