I’m so happy to share these with you guys! They turned out so much better than I expected! I always had the idea in the back of my mind to create a cheesecake of some sort with the crust and topping of a Nanaimo bar but never got around to it…that is, until I realized I had a bar of cream cheese I really needed to use up! I am SO GLAD I decided to finally go for it. These are delicious and look awesome when cut into small squares. The filling is slightly different than a standard cheesecake because we use a bit of heavy cream and xanthan gum to give it a Nanaimo bar custard-like texture.
These are honestly so tasty I had to stop myself at 3 pieces..as I’m sure I could have continued. Anyways, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!! Continue reading “Keto Nanaimo Cheesecake Squares”

Happy almost Easter Everyone! I hope you all are excited for the long weekend. What are your plans? For me Easter is always spent with my grandparents at their farm. I love it there and I get to see all my cousins, aunts and uncles as well. It’s a long drive to get there and we are leaving super early tomorrow (yes I know I should get to bed). So instead of going to bed on time I of course decided to create a breakfast that I could just eat on the road tomorrow, already pre-made. But what I wanted was for my breakfast to include some kind of veggie but be sweet and delicious at the same time..and thus, the Green Monster Breakfast Bars were born. Sorry, no hiding the vegetables in these. The pops of green spinach stick out all throughout these tasty bars. But have no fear, the taste is one thing that is hidden! The ripe banana takes over and lightly sweetens the bar. It also keeps them chewy and moist.
These bars are an entire nutritious meal in one and are amazing for on the go or if you want a fast simple breakfast. They are also very filling and packed with protein! (15g to be exact). If your morning needs a boost try these awesome Green Monster Breakfast Bars. Take me to the recipe!
Okay I know the title is pretty exaggerated but these bars are completely worth it. I made these and was blown away by how good they tasted! I can’t explain how amazing they are, you just need to make them and see for yourself! I felt so guilty eating these, like I am eating a chunk of delicious cake. They do not have any yucky protein after-taste! They are just pure amazing-ness & each large square has 136 cals, 5.6g fat, 17.75 carbs & 9g protein. These are so healthy you can eat them for breakfast! If you are missing your sweets, you need to make these asap. Actually, no, everyone should make these right now!
These bars sadly are not my original recipe but I give 100% credit to Katie over at Dashing Dish who created these masterpieces!

My nutrition facts are a bit different because I used trutein vanilla protein powder(awesome, highly recommend for this recipe), I used peanuts, chopped instead of peanut butter chocolate chips on top & I used 2 tbsp sugar-free syrup to substitute for half the honey.
What are you doing still staring at the pictures?? Go make these immediately!
