Nanaimo cookies

This is Nanaimo, B.C.

These are Nanaimo bars.

After my New Year’s Eve party, I was left with a giant slab of Nanaimo bars. I gave some to the neighbours.

I was still left with tons of bars. B.B. and I extracted the chocolate and made cookies.

We separated the layers and cut them into chunks.

Nanaimo bar chocolate chunks

We used this whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipe from the Betty Crocker website. The semi-sweet chocolate chips were replaced with the Nanaimo chunks. We also added a wee bit of coconut.

The cookies were delish! Nanaimo cookies are definitely a one-time deal. I doubt I’ll have that many Nanaimo bars in my possession ever again.

  1. You should’ve sent those Nanaimo bars my way – I would have polished them off sharpish!
