Healthy Carrot Cake Bars

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.
