Nutriboba® Superfood Carrot Cake Bars

Carrot cake is delicious but can be oh-so sugary. These superfood carrot cake bars are perfect for when you want that cinnamon sweetness but with half of the calories, more protein and the added anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric!
 
Ingredients
4 eggs
1 cup mashed banana or ¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce *see note
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoon non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract or flesh from 1 vanilla bean
½ cup coconut flour
1 packet Nutriboba® Turmeric Vanilla Golden Tea Latte
¼ cup ground or milled flax seed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon gluten-free baking soda 
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon sea salt
pinch ground cloves
¾ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup raisins
2 tablespoon coconut butter, melted (for the icing)
 
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F and line an baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl with a hand or stand mixer.
  3. Whisk dry ingredients in a small bowl. Once incorporated, add to the wet mix and mix until smooth.
  4. Add shredded carrots and raisins. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes to thicken up.
  5. Scoop approximately ⅓ cup at a time into your hand. Shape into a bar and place on prepared baking sheet. You can also shape the bars on the baking sheet, I found that was easiest.
  6. Bake bars for 22-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean, the bottoms of the bars or golden, and the tops are cracking slightly.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack
  8. Once cooled completely, top with a drizzle of coconut butter.
