Carrot Cake Protein Bars

Recipe from The Big Man’s World


Carrot cake is the best, but only if it has cream cheese frosting. With regular vanilla frosting it just isn’t the same. Carrot cake protein bars? Yes please.

I made the silly mistake of not buying mashed carrot baby food and actually mashing the carrots myself. I also made another mistake of not steaming them in the microwave and took about 20 minutes to boil them. Won’t be doing this again next time. Do yourself a favor and buy them mashed.


Healthy No Bake Carrot Cake Protein Bars

1/2 this recipe made 3 bars for me, so expect about 6

Substitutions made & products used:

For the 1/2 cup coconut flour, I used more oat flour

Myofusion Probiotic Whey

I omitted the 2 T granulated sweetener

For the 1 tsp mixed spice, I used equal amounts cloves and nutmeg with a little ginger

For the 1/4 cup almond butter, I used Kirkland brand

I used maple syrup instead of brown rice syrup

For the mashed carrot, see rant above

Silk Almond Milk

For The Cream Cheese Protein Frosting

(YES there’s even frosting on them!!)


I again used the Myofusion Probiotic and Vanilla Silk Almond Milk



WOW. These are little bars of heaven. The taste is perfect and they’re chewy like a granola bar. They’re super hearty and filling which is great for a mid-day snack.

The frosting is amazingly delicious. I’ll be using that for other recipes too, it’s way too good.

I will definitely be making these again!
