These Carrot Oat Bars make the perfect healthy snack. They’re dense, chewy and easy to make in the blender. Plus they’re kid-friendly and also make a great addition to breakfasts and lunches.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups roasted carrots
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used non-dairy but cow’s milk would be fine)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 23 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • optional: raisins or shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. Add ingredients to blender or food processor in order listed (except raisins and/or coconut if using).
  2. Blend/process until smooth.
  3. Stir in optional mix-ins if desired.
  4. Spread into a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  6. Store in the fridge!

Notes

You can sub steamed carrots but add 1-2 Tbsp more maple syrup.

I don’t use mix-ins. I just imagine they’d taste good because they pair well with carrot cake.

If you want to add frosting, you can use whatever kind you want. I just mixed together cream cheese (softened) and powdered sugar until it reached the right sweetness and spread it on top of a couple.

You can also make these as muffins.
