Carrot Cake Bars

Carrot Cake Bars

These carrot cake bars are packed with shredded carrots, warm spices, and pecans and topped with cream cheese frosting. They are soft, moist, and chewy and taste like a cross between carrot cake and a buttery blondie.

Why you’ll love this recipe

Flavor: Butter, brown sugar, vanilla, warm spices, and pecans add lots of flavor.

Texture: The bars are part cake part blondie so they bake up a bit more moist, dense, and buttery than a cake.

Ease: No difficult techniques or fancy equipment needed.

Ingredients:

Bars
  • ¾ cup (172g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • ½ cup (107g) packed brown sugar, light or dark
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1⅓ cup (170g) all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 2½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 scant teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (100g) shredded carrots, loosely measured, not packed
  • ½ cup (65g) finely chopped toasted pecans

Frosting
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons (57g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ cups (187g) powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • finely chopped toasted pecans, optional garnish
