These did not last long in our house!  I suggest doubling the batch and freezing some.  If you have a nut allergy, you can probably use sunflower seeds in place of the cashews.  That would make them lunchbox friendly too. 🙂

Carrot Cake Larabar Bites

I know that you all love larabars.  I have had several requests for the carrot cake bar recipe, so I thought I would create you these carrot cake larabar bites.  The flavor of these carrot cake larabar bites of reminded me of my Coconut Cream Larabars and also my No Bake Pumpkin Pie Cookies.

I checked the ingredient list on Larabar’s website and created my recipe based on those ingredients.   I am hoping it tastes similar to the store bought version.  I am not a huge carrot cake fan, but my husband is.  My baby daughter LOVED this recipe.  That was a surprise to me.  Very kid friendly. 🙂  They are also vegan, gluten free and grain free.

My husband really enjoyed these.  I was not a huge fan myself.  Mostly because I am obsessed with the Coconut Cream Larabars.  That just means there will be more for him and my daughter to share. 🙂  These are just as easy to make as all the others.  I cut  mine in squares, but you can do bars or roll them into balls as well.
