These are amazing, and so addictive! I usually double the recipe so they will last more than a few days.
This recipe is a variation on my Fig & Date Squares
combined with my love for Living Cuisine’s Caramel Coconut Cookies. I hope you like them.
(In the picture, the Caramel Apple Bars are the ones on the bottom right.)
What to do with the carrot pulp? Tired of carrot cake? Try this. It’s hard to put your finger on the taste…”interesting”, in a very good way. Food combining friendly without the honey, which is just an optional add-in for you sweet-tooths out there. (I think the clementines make it plenty sweet.) For maximum “yum” effect, try with coconut butter and honey spread on top!
A yummy “cream cheese” icing, from Chad Sarno.
Goes well with the Carrot Cake recipe I have posted here.
This cake is lovely, it’s not too sweet and has an actual cakey texture. I adapted it from a recipe by Chad Sarno. It is very versatile – you can add whatever you have on hand – ie. substitute mesquite flour for the carob, use all apple if you don’t have pineapple, play with the spices, etc. You can also dehydrate it longer if you would like a chewier bar, or make it into cookie shapes, if you prefer.
Please note: My kids love this cake, and I have listed it in the Kids category, but babies and some young toddlers (such as those with a family history of nut allergies) should not eat any nut products. Please consult your pediatrician before serving nuts to your child.
