Nainoma Bar

We have the grand-twins for the weekend so I got them to help me with a bit of baking for Pop.   This recipe for Nainoma Bar comes from the Rally Cook Book (1st Edition) published in New Zealand.  Like many of my favourite recipe books, the pages are stained, the cover is missing and there are many hand written notes.  I recall making this recipe when my children were young and we were expecting company.  Quick, easy, uses pantry staples… and is just a little bit fancy.
