1. Refined Sugar Free

I sweetened it with baked sweet potatoes. It is sweet enough for me especially when you get a mouthful of raisins and coconut butter.

However, if you have more of a sweet tooth, adding 2-3 tbsp maple syrup will be a healthy and delicious option for these paleo carrot cake bars as well.

2. Gluten Free

I used almond flour and coconut flour for this carrot cake recipe. So it is naturally gluten free.
