Carrot Cake Bars


I’m sure you are a lover of Carrot Cake.
And although carrot cake is always good, sometimes you want something that’s a tiny bit better for you. A few slices of carrot cake everyday may be a little too much, but you can easily eat a few of these each day. These bars are super healthy, filling and most important: they are really good. It’s truly the taste of carrot cake in a healthy, little bar.

I like to make these oat bars and eat them as a quick and satisfying snack between meals. They are easy to take with me in my bag and taste good any moment of the day. Children love them too, especially when you don’t tell them there are hidden veggies involved!

You can keep these bars for a few days in the fridge (if they will last that long of course!), but freezing works perfect too. I don’t have particularly sweet tooth and the raisins already add some sweetness, but feel free to add some sugar or honey.
