Carrot Oat Bars



2 cups roasted carrots

1 egg

3/4 cup milk (I used non-dairy but cow’s milk would be fine)

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 cups rolled oats

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

2-3 Tbsp ground flaxseed

optional: raisins or shredded coconut


Add ingredients to blender or food processor in order listed (except raisins and/or coconut if using).

Blend/process until smooth.

Stir in optional mix-ins if desired.

Spread into a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes.


You can sub steamed carrots but add 1-2 Tbsp more maple syrup.

I don’t use mix-ins. I just imagine they’d taste good because they pair well with carrot cake.

If you want to add frosting, you can use whatever kind you want. I just mixed together cream cheese (softened) and powdered sugar until it reached the right sweetness and spread it on top of a couple.

You can also make these as muffins.
