I tried to do an Easter menu without carrot cake but I just couldn't fight it. All the other springtime sweet treats I want to make will have to be saved for the rest of the month! These carrot cake bars taste just like the real deal but are surprisingly healthy enough to have for breakfast or Easter morning brunch without sending you into a sugar crash. Sweetened with a little coconut sugar and maple syrup and made from oats and almonds. No one will know but you. If icing can be made without icing sugar and still suit the dessert then that's my first choice. This one comes together in seconds and the fact that it's only sweetened with pure maple syrup really lets the cream cheese shine.
