Skinny Carrot Cake Cheesecake Bites

UPDATE: Below you will find a Vegan Cheesecake Layer Option and a Non-Vegan Option – choose which you prefer and use that in your recipe.

I wanted to shake up the classic carrot cake recipe and put my frozen treat spin on it! I made the carrot cake in my raw, blended fashion and instead of icing I used a cheesecake top. Of course I threw in pineapple because I love that flavor in carrot cake!

Next time you want carrot cake make these… they are truly divine!

This recipe is skinny, gluten free, no-bake, raw/vegan option, 5 minute prep, and a whole lot of carrot cake yummyness.

    Hi Amy!  Do you  have nutritional info on your recipes?  I’ve had gastric bypass surgery and have to eat a certain amt of protein per day.  I haven’t tried these YET…..but plan to very soon. When I go to a family function and we’re taking food, I try to take something low sugar, low fat for those diabetics and those that are trying to lose weight and get healthier.  I have three siblings and two of them, plus myself, are diabetic.  Thanks so much for taking the time to develop delicous recipes!!!

    These are my absolute favourite treat! I’ve made them many times, including for company and everyone is always impressed to find out that they’re a pretty healthy treat. 

    Also I’m GF and much prefer this larabar type crust to one using GF flours. It’s naturally sweet and easy to make.

    can more honey be substituted for stevia? Or if i do not substitute for the stevia will it not be sweet enough?

  • Stephanie

    How long will these hold up in the freezer? These bars are the perfect healthy Easter option!
