Healthy Carrot Cake Cereal Bars

It’s the weekend. Finally I feel like I’ve found some time and space in life to catch up with myself a little. I’ve had the steam cleaner out, which I have to share with Miss K, cleaning fanatic. I’ve pretty much put all the washing away (MIRACLE) and due to my Slow Cooker Experiment dinner is cooking, the baby napping. SO…it was time to get out Vlog on and try a new recipe out 🙂 

Who doesn’t love a bit of carrot cake? Combine that with a cereal bar love in our house and these have instantly become a winner. These came about at Miss K’s fav veggie is carrot and she loves the bought cereal bars (which mummy meanly rarely buys)…. so I decided it was time to play around with making a savoury feel cereal bar for her. They are surprisingly good.

    These look delicious. Any cereal bar that contains a vegetable is a winner in my book – even more so if the kids like it too.

    It’s a good idea for savoury cereal bars. My five-year-old enjoys carrots so this might be something nice for us to try together.
