Here is the Seed’n’Nuts Carrot Cake bar from my epic day of granola bar testing! The two others I made from that day are Peanut Butter & Banana Nut Bars and Chewy Chocolatey Bars. These carrot bars are sooo good. Out of the three flavours, these were eaten the quickest! 🙂 Very fresh tasting and full of flavour. Not to mention how great it feels to be eating such yummy food with all natural ingredients.

Ingredients
  • 5 tbs pitted dates
  • 2 tbs walnuts
  • 2 tbs cashews/almonds
  • 2-3 tbs pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 5-6 tbs grated carrot
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 6 tbs rolled oats
  • 3 tbs wheat bran
Directions
  1. Grate up the carrot.
  2. In a food processor / magic bullet, lightly grind up the dates, oats and the walnuts and cashews/almonds. Don't over-process as you want to keep some of the crunchiness from the nuts and chewiness from the oats.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, add in the grated carrot, the dates, nuts, oats, wheat bran, the pumpkin seeds and the cinnamon.
  4. Mix together well. If you find that there isn't enough sticky-substances in the mixture to fully combine everything together, blend up a few more pitted dates and add it into the mixture. (Using your hands to mix everything works better than using a spoon.)
  5. When you are able to form a solid ball with the mixture, then you have the right consistency. Place ball onto a cutting board, and flatten it with your hand. Then use a rolling pin to flatten it out, as thick or thin as you want your bars to be.
  6. Cut off the uneven edges of the mixture and put them aside to use after. Cut your granola bars and place then on a parchment paper on top of a baking sheet.
  7. Preheat oven to 325F
  8. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Once you remove them from the oven, leave them to cool for a few minutes. They will harden as they cool down.
