Carrot Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted on
So delicious! I made this recipe (without coconut, because some of my coworkers are allergic). They said it was the best they ever had. Awesome! What a perfectly fun cake! Love the carrot on top 🙂
This was the best carrot bars I’ve ever tasted. This recipe was so easy to make. Will definitely be making again!
These carrot cake bars are perfectly sweet and so incredibly moist, you won’t believe how quickly they disappear. This recipe makes so many bars, but somehow, it’s just never enough.
