If you love carrot cake then you’ll love these deep dish carrot cake protein bars. They are topped with a 2 ingredient “frosting” which tastes exactly like cream cheese. They make a delicious, more nutrient dense treat.
Deep Dish Carrot Cake (Protein) Bars
Deep dish carrot cake cheesecake bars - makes 6
3 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used lean body for her protein)
3/4 cup peanut butter (I used peanut protein and it worked well)
2 large carrots, shredded (or about 1/2 cup)
pinch each cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
1/2 cup white chocolate, melted (I used Amber lyn chocolates)
1/2 cup SO Delicious dairy free cultured coconut milk in unsweetened vanilla
Add all ingredients to a food processor (except last 2) and blend very well until your mixture starts to clump together. If using powdered peanut butter, add water to powder first to make peanut butter then add to food processor. Remove mixture from food processor (mixture will be sticky) and press into a small container (I used a 7x 5 x 1.5 inch glass container). melt chocolate and stir in cultured coconut milk. pour on top of your bars. Set in freezer until chocolate hardens. Cut into bars and enjoy. Store leftovers in freezer.
