    This is NOT helpful for those following low carb diets!!! 32 total carbs per serving and it makes 6 servings. If it’s as good as it looks - no way am I eating just 1. These kinds of recipes spark carbohydrate binges than can last for weeks.

      I absolutely agree!

    This recipe does not look worth it for the carbs and calories and effort. Total carbs are 31.6 and my total limit for a day is 20. I feel like this recipe does not belong on this website for low-carb.

      Are you tracking total carbs? The amount of fiber and sugar alcohols knocks this down.

      I totally agree. The last thing I want to see, when I’m logging my food, so I can stay under 10 total carbs/day, is a recipe that is more than 10 total carbs! Especially when it comes with a picture of sweet poison that my brain remembers as a pleasant experience. NOT HELPFUL!

    Very bad. Has the maker ever tasted a Nanaimo bar? I will be throwing the entire batch away. I look forward to trying other keto Nanaimo bars that use ingredients like butter, eggs, cream cheese, cream....

      So it’s kinda bland, maybe next time I’ll use sweetener. Other then that not bad for a treat once and a while
