I discovered this recipe recently during Jamie Eason’s 12 Week Live Fit Program….which is fabulous by the way. If you are new to Clean Eating and want to incorporate a great workout program as well, you should check out her program. I am getting ready to repeat it again because I like it that much. She is kind of my hero.
I believe wholeheartedly that it is impossible NOT get the body you want if you eat clean and do a little weight training. Remember, clean eating is not a diet. It is lifestyle. It is removing the high processed food with all the crazy additives, artificial sweeteners, sugar and preservatives that our bodies just do not need. There are so many benefits of eating clean it’s shocking.
These bars are another perfect snack or to have for breakfast along with yogurt parfait or the egg white scramble I love.

Thanks for your speedy reply!! And for taking the time to recognize my comment!
I’m gonna make these for my ladies “Movie Morning Madness” that I started a few months back. We meet once a week and all bring something healthy and clean-eating as possible!
That sounds like so much fun!! I would to have a group like that 🙂
Can I make these with regular carrots? Steamed and mashed for same baby food texture? Almond flour instead of oat flour? And applesauce instead of egg? Plus wouldn’t that make them a but cleaner?
I’m sure you could use regular carrots as well. And the other substitutions as well. I love, love almond flour!

I have a bunch of carrots in the fridge and was looking for something semi-healthy to take to the teachers at my son’s school this week. I may modify it so it is not so clean because I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand. Thanks for sharing!
These look amazing, Sherri! Yummers!
