These bars make me feel so good!!!! Packed with whole grains, fruit, and veggies (duh carrots), this is a sweet snack that you can feel good about — pinky promise.

We love have bars ready to go when we are leaving the house or craving a snack during the day. We literally have bags of home made bars just chillin in the freezer which is amazing considering that we always have healthy bars at our finger tips! These bars fit in perfectly. They are sweet, spicy, nutty, have great texture, and are so easy to make.

I recently got into the idea of using date paste in recipes in place of honey or agave. While I know that dates also contain sugar, I feel better that it is a natural form of sugar instead of using agave. Plus, it’s so easy to make! Soak some dates in warm water for about 15 minutes, then drain the water and blend the dates until smooth. You might need to add some water to the dates to make them move in the blender, but it will soak right into the dates so you don’t have to worry about having watery dates. I buy big bags of dates at Costco which are about $10. I also make a bunch of it at a time and then keep it in the fridge for whenever I want to use it. This recipe is one of those times that I’ll use it up.

If you’re a carrot cake fiend like I am, definitely try these out! You won’t feel nearly as guilty as you would eating a piece of cake ;).
