Do you have two bowls, ten minutes to prep, and thirty minutes to bake? If so, I recommend these Grain-Free Carrot Cake Bars as your go-to recipe. These bars are tender, and they taste like carrot cake without the extra ingredients or sugar.
We’ve been enjoying these Grain-Free Carrot Cake Bars for years. They are super filling, healthy, and they taste like carrot cake. I’ve even been knows to top these bars with a little frosting and serve them as actual cake. But don’t tell my kids that.
Carrot cake is one of my father’s favorite desserts. It’s also a favorite of mine. My mom wasn’t really into baking and my family ate out a lot so whenever we wanted a carrot cake my mom would pick up a whole one from the store.
I remember the carrot cakes we used to get were really dense, had tons of nuts and raisins in them and were smothered in a cream cheese frosting. Delicious.
I still love a good old-fashioned gluten-free carrot cake every once in a while, but these bars are so easy to make, that I don’t want to spend time in the kitchen whipping up a whole carrot cake when I can have these in less than 3o minutes and I can eat as much as I want with no guilt.
Now that I have a family of my own and we eat at home most nights, if I want a carrot cake, I need to make it myself. No problem.
This grain-free carrot cake bar recipe is really quite simple and uses only ten ingredients. It’s not a full cake, but it has all the same great qualities of the cake version, and remember it’s healthy.
No grains, refined-sugar, and it’s loaded with healthy fats and protien. Something I am trying to incorporate more into my family’s eating.
Every carrot cake has the potential to be healthy and nutritious so why not make it that way? These carrot cake bars are grain free, moist, flavorful, and satisfying. I haven’t tried adding in pineapple, but my Grain-Free Hummingbird is a similar recipe, developed from my Grain-Free Banana Everything Bars, and used pineapple to sweeten it.
You can serve these Grain-Free Carrot Cake Bars plain for a healthy breakfast or frost them with fresh whipped cream or coconut cream for a wonderful dessert. If you like this recipe you’ll love my Paleo Carrot Cake Muffins.
