    Nutty Carrot Cake Bars

    Nonstick cooking spray
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
    1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 cup finely shredded carrot
    3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
    1/3 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    1/4 cup fat-free milk
    1 recipe Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting (see recipe below)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

    In a medium bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt. Add carrot, 1/2 cup of the nuts, the eggs, oil, and milk. Stir just until combined. Spread mixture evenly in the prepared pan.


    Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool bars in pan on a wire rack.

    Using the edges of the foil, lift the uncut bars out of the pan. Spread top evenly with Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup nuts. Cut into 20 bars. Makes 20 bars.

    ~Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting~---Thaw 1/2 cup frozen light whipped topping. In a medium bowl, beat half of an 8-ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened, with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in 1/4 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt until smooth. Fold whipped topping into cream cheese mixture.

    ~Sugar Substitutes~---Use Sweet 'N Low bulk or packets. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar.

    This sounds great! I'm considering making it for my cookie baskets, as something different to put in.

    Thanks for posting this recipe,
