Nutrition Facts

These carrot cake squares pack a nutritional punch, with each bar delivering 26 grams of good carbs, 16 grams of performance fats and 14 grams of muscle-supporting protein.

Because of the carrots, each protein bar also provides a whopping 2,808 IU of vitamin A — 120 percent of your Daily Value.

How to Make Carrot Cake Bars

These carrot cake bars are really easy to make. First, preheat oven to 375 F and then line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.

In a power blender or food processor, blend together dates, coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon.

Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs, sea salt and Bone Broth Protein Vanilla powder together until well combined. Scrap the date mixture into the mixing bowl and combine well, with a whisk or wooden spoon.

Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Scrap into the baking dish and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown on outside.

Variations: Feel free to substitute the coconut oil for applesauce, or add a thin layer of cream cheese frosting for some decadence.
