Vegan Nanaimo Bar Pie

If you are not Canadian, the name of this recipe might leave you scratching your head. What the heck is a “Nanaimo”? Nanaimo is a city on Vancouver Island. My mom was born there. One of Nanaimo’s greatest claims to fame is the Nanaimo Bar. A traditional Nanaimo Bar is an intensely sweet treat, commonly sold in bakeries and coffee shops. My Nanaimo Bar Pie is an homage, but not a replica of the original recipe. My version has been adapted to be a healthier alternative; it is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and primarily raw.
