    The exact origin of the Nanaimo Bar is unknown, though it is attributed to Nanaimo, British Columbia. The earliest confirmed printed copy of a recipe using the name “Nanaimo Bars” appears in the Edith Adams’ prize cookbook (14th edition) from 1953. A copy of the book is on view at the Nanaimo museum.   Nanaimo Bars are known and loved for their combination of chocolate, coconut and cream. Chef Corbin’s version takes those classic flavors and pairs them together to create a delicious Nanaimo-inspired variation, packed with flavor but not with fat.
