Healthy Carrot Bars Recipe

I’m always on the lookout for easy, delicious and healthy snacks that I can take with me to go! I picked up a bag of baby carrots on my last trip to the supermarket and I decided to try and make some kind of portable bar with them! It came out great! So great that my husband absolutely loves them and may have had a few in one sitting!

These are so tasty and pretty healthy on the dessert scale, too! With applesauce providing all the moisture, there’s no butter or oil in this recipe! If you’re not sitting down to enjoy this, you can grab a bar and hit the road with it- it’s super portable!

Hope you guys try it and love it!
