  • Combine carrots, raisins, water, sugar, orange juice, butter, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Pour carrot mixture into a large bowl and cool to lukewarm, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Stir flour, egg, baking soda, and salt into carrot mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

I wouldn't say that these taste like carrot cake, but I will say that they taste good. Nice blend of spices, the carrots & raisins bring some moisture to the somewhat dense bars, and the OJ brightens the flavor just a little. After taking the photo, I drizzled Yogurt Glaze from this site over the bars, and that brought them up to a 5-star recipe IMO. Enjoyed! Read More

This recipe takes a little time to prepare but it is worth it! It turned out so good. I changes a few things. Used some pineapple and substituted all the sugar with honey. Great recipe! Read More

Made it as per the recipe, except that I used 3 oz of sucralose instead of 6 oz of regular sugar. It was delicious and had a cake-light texture. The spices really come through but were not overwhelming. Will be making it again! Read More
