Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line square 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Then, in a large mixing bowl, add eggs, maple syrup, milk, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk.


Whisk. Add almond flour, carrots, walnuts, raisins and coconut flakes. Stir well to combine.


Transfer batter into previosuly prepared pan, level with spatula and bake on a middle rack of the oven for 30-35 minutes or until edges and top are nice golden brown. While cake is baking, make the frosting and refrigerate.


Remove cake from the oven, wait 5 minutes and then holding onto parchment paper flaps remove cake onto a cooling rack to cool off completely before frosting.


Spread frosting on top of the cake and garnish with extra walnuts. Cut into 9 bars and enjoy!


Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Freeze: I like to freeze carrot bars on a baking tray (not touching) until solid and then transfer them to an airtight container for up to 3 months.
