These Healthy Carrot Cake Bars are a secretly healthy treat! Full of carrot cake flavors, but made without refined sugar, flour, and oil!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 can cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey OR maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond butter OR peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add the beans, oats, coconut sugar, honey, almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and cloves into a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process until smooth, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary.

Notes

 If you are not a lover of things like raisins and walnuts in your carrot cake bars, may I suggest the wise substitution of chocolate chips in this recipe?
