Bad Girl Gone Good No-Bake Carrot Cake Protein Bar

Craving something sweet, but you don’t want to break the scale? Try this recipe guilt-free!

Ingredients

6 Scoops Vanilla Crème Proto Whey
2 cups Instant Oats
1 cup of grated carrots (I use the pulp left over from the juicer)
2 Tsp Cinnamon (for a little added spice add 1/3 tsp cloves)
2 tbsp raw almond butter
1 tbsp flax seed
3 tbsp drained crushed pineapple
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 cup of Water

Directions:
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl starting with oats, carrots, whey, spices and flax. Then add almond butter, berries and nuts. Add water as needed to moisten mixture. Once thoroughly mixed, spread in 8X8 pan lined with Press and Seal Wrap. Be sure to cut wrap twice the size of pan so that you can cover mixture once it is spread evenly in pan. After you have wrapped mixture, freeze for several hours. Once frozen, remove from freezer and let stand for 2-4 minutes. Cut into 8 equal sized bars and wrap them individually or store in ziplock bags. Refreeze until about 5 minutes before you are ready to eat.

To complete the whole carrot cake experience (and be a little bad), mix 1/3 cup of organic reduced fat cream cheese and 1-2 packets of stevia and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Spread a little on top of your bar and yum!
