Classic 11 Carrot Cake (page 122) – on energy bars

can ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Classic Carrot Cake (page 122), be an energy bar?

my canoe club is hosting the first race for this season, and i was asked to develop a recipe for energy bars.  here is my take:

“I am sorry, and I don’t want to sound arrogant or bashing. I prefer a banana rather than energy bars. Don’t let the pretty oats, cranberries, or synthetic chocolate coating fool you; energy bars lacks texture as cardboard, sticks to my teeth, and uses the most inexpensive and low quality processed ingredients you can think of wrapped in a candy wrapper for a huge profit sale.  I do have a recipe for a sugar free whole wheat carrot cake, contains honey. And we can bake this into individual bars or mini muffins and call it carrot energy bars?”

get the picture from Cake Bible:

    I’m with you on thinking that carrot cake is nutritionally equivalent to some and superior to other energy bars. The ones with few recognizable ingredients make me cringe.

    I like to make the carrot bread from the Bread Bible for lunchbox snacking.
