Description

 

These delicious breakfast bars are reminiscent of an indulgent carrot cake but are filled with fruits and vegetables. They’re easy to make and will last in the refrigerator for about a week. If you do not have a high power blender, you could substitute almond butter or sunflower seed butter for the homemade walnut butter (just be forewarned that sunflower seed butter may result in a green-tinged bar).
