No-Bake Carrot Cake Protein Bars Recipe


For the bars
2 cups gluten free oat flour (For the paleo option, use 1 cup coconut flour and omit extra coconut flour)
½ cup coconut flour, sifted (Can sub for almond or more oat flour)
½ cup vanilla vegan, paleo or casein protein powder
2 T granulated sweetener of choice (optional)*
1 T cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
1/4 cup almond butter (can sub for any nut butter)
½ cup brown rice syrup (sub for maple syrup in the paleo version)
1/2 cup mashed carrots
1 T + dairy free milk of choice**

For the frosting (non paleo)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (Can sub for 1/4 cup granulated sweetener of choice)
1/4 cup cream cheese (I used a vegan brand to keep it dairy free)
2 T + dairy free milk of choice

* I omitted the sweetener as my vegan protein powder was sweetened
** Depending on the flour/protein powder combination, you may need more or less. I used up to 3/4 cup with the paleo version.
Non-frosted bars can be kept at room temperature but I recommend them to eaten from the fridge.
