Christmas is Coming!

Spiced Pumpkin Nanaimo Bars are the perfect farewell to the pumpkin season!

Don’t get it wrong, though. I do have a few unpublished recipes which I’m keeping until January. Also, I might make a few pumpkin things after the holiday season.

But December is fully reserved for Christmas treats. I believe it’s okay to post some pumpkin stuff in January – February, but sharing the Christmas food in spring would be a little odd #christmasallyearround

So let’s get this party started while waiting for Santa. You can be quite sure that my next and the following posts will be pretty much all about Christmas #dontyoueventhinkaboutthediet

But now let’s enjoy these scrumptious and creamy Spiced Pumpkin Nanaimo Bars. If you don’t live in Canada, you might haven’t heard of this amazing dessert!

Yup, it’s a Canadian invention (Although there might be the similar desserts all over the world) So, I may humbly say you’re the lucky folks since you know me, this blog, and now this lovely dessert.

I posted the classic version in January, and this time I wanted something seasonal. I mean, what kind of seasonal bars would you think of at first place in October? Spiced Pumpkin Nanaimo Bars to be!

It’s creamy, easy to make, delicious, and with the distinctive pumpkin flavor. The only one thing about all Nanaimo bars is that it’s a highly sweet dessert. Like really. But with a cup of strong (unsweetened!) coffee in the morning, it’s divine!

And yes, #spoileralert I might be making another, Christmas version, in December. If I make it (And importantly, the idea won’t suck), I’ll definitely share with you.

In the meantime, you can make these  Spiced Pumpkin Nanaimo Bars because…why not?

Have you ever heard or tried a Nanaimo Bar?

    I remember when you posted that earlier recipe because it was the first time I had heard of nanaimo bars. I thought they were delicious back then and especially delicious now with pumpkin. I love dark chocolate too so I won’t be turning away a plate of these! So yummmmy Ben!

    I have never heard or tried Nanaimo bars before… I’m thinkin’ I must have missed your original post? Anyways, these look absolutely delicious, Ben, and you know I’m not even the biggest fan of pumpkin! I’m thinking I can totally make room for a little pumpkin in my life if it looks like this though! Such a delicious, decadent treat!! Cheers, buddy!

    You know what’s funny? One of my Monday night curling teammates is from Canada, and she made a batch of nanaimo bars for everyone last night…but then she left the plate at home on her kitchen counter. So I was *this close* to getting my first nanaimo bar! I guess I just need to make your pumpkin version instead…that crust looks amazing, my friend!
