Moist, easy to make, and loaded with the classic flavors you expect from carrot cake, these carrot cake bars are the perfect anytime treat and a fun way to serve veggies, especially to the little ones. They're free from refined sugar and get their sweetness from applesauce, golden raisins, and honey, so you can feel good about packing them in the kids' lunchboxes. If you want to go all out, try subsituting the raisins for chopped walnuts or chocolate chips!
Bars can be made up to 24 hours ahead. Store in an airtight container at room temperature and frost before serving. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
So I used maple syrup in place of the honey. I decided on maple syrup in case my 7 month old accidentally got some from his bigger brother and to allow him to have a taste too. I used it straight across. Equivalent amounts. Tastes pretty good.
What a fabulous idea, Christine! It sounds like they turned out wonderfully with the maple syrup. Thanks for giving the recipe a try!
Can you use something other then honey?
Hi Christine, you can certainly substitute with regular white sugar instead, but we unfortunately haven't tested that method and therefore don't have exact measurements for you to try. If you decide to use a different sweetener, let us know how it goes!
