Healthy Carrot Cake Protein Bars Recipe

Healthy Carrot Cake Protein Bars Recipe

Healthy carrot cake snacks are the best homemade protein bars. They’re completely vegan with no cooking required. I love healthy snack ideas like this simple plant based recipe. Additionally the flavor combinations are delicious and fun. 

Dates are perfect for healthy carrot cake snacks because they’re packed with nutrition and super tasty. Due to the nutritional value of dates, consuming them has multiple health benefits. For example they can lower cholesterol, improve bone health, and promote digestion.

Furthermore these homemade protein bars are rich in protein, vitamins, and iron. Other reasons I love these healthy snack ideas is because it strengthens the nervous system and improves the skin. Not to mention how simple and affordable they are to make. 

All you need to make these healthy carrot cake snacks include 2 cups dried dates, 2 cups shredded carrots, and 4 oz of pistachios. It’s easier to use the pre shelled pistachios. I made the mistake of getting the shelled ones and had to spend time removing them!

These homemade protein bars are so healthy and nutritious

Other ingredients for these healthy snack ideas includes 1/2 cup coconut flour, 1 tbsp stevia, 1/2 tsp sea salt, and 8 oz vegan white chocolate wafers/chips. You will also need 2 tbsp vegan butter (any brand).

It’s so simple to make these healthy snack ideas. First combine dates and carrots in your food processor and blend ingredients together thoroughly. Then add pistachios, coconut flour, stevia, and sea salt into the food processor and blend ingredients together.

You will likely need to scrap the sides of the food processor a few times to thoroughly combine the ingredients of the homemade protein bars. Then line a sheet pan or baking pan with parchment paper. Dump the healthy carrot cake snacks mixture onto the sheet pan or baking sheet and manually mold into a rectangular shape. Combine the white chocolate and vegan butter in a large microwave safe bowl. 

Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir, repeat until thoroughly melted and combined. Pour the melted white chocolate mixture on top of the molded carrot cake bars. Set the entire carrot cake in a cold refrigerator until everything hardens before cutting into 16 portions.
