Loved these. I had a couple of containers of raspberries to eat up before they went bad and decided to use them in these cake bars! This turned out so good. The raspberries added so much moisture to these bars! Super easy to make and keep in the fridge for days (if they last that long). Good cold or warm.

Carrot cake is one of my all time favorite pies. I loved making it when I was younger and licking the bowl clean (which I do not advise, of course)! I set out on a quest to make a healthier version with protein. This is what I came up with and it was perfect. My husband and I enjoyed it warm after dinner and enjoyed the leftovers cold the next day on a road trip. Both were delicious!
