Carrot Patch Bars

Recipe by ReeLani

Spicy, soft and cakey treats. I thought it'd be fun to try carrots instead of pumpkin in a recipe and see how it turned out. Hope you enjoy them.

This is absolutely fab! I love carrots any way they are fixed and these were fixed to a T. Great recipe to serve at luncheon for light dessert.
