nanaimo bars and graham wafers.

It’s Daring Baker challenge reveal day and this month it’s all about Nanaimo Bars and Graham Wafers.

As per usual – I used alternative recipes in order to make my bars and wafers vegan. For the Nanaimo bars I used my go-to recipe, which you can find in my original post here. For the graham wafers, I used this fabulous Vegan Yum Yum recipe. I opted to use wheat because that’s what I had on hand, but I hope to try Lauren’s gluten-free version soon as it looks wonderful. Neither my bars nor my wafers are gluten-free.

One thing I have learned after making this recipe countless times since that original Nanaimo post – use a good sharp knife to cut your squares.

Even so, I still managed to crack the chocolate top.
