This Carrot Cake Muesli Slice is a great way to smuggle some extra veggies into the kids!
This Carrot Cake Muesli Slice recipe is inspired by my Mum’s Classic Muesli Slice recipe which is a staple in our house. I decided to try and make this carrot cake version after enjoying a gorgeous piece of carrot cake while out with friends in an attempt to still enjoy a healthier version of one of my favourite cakes.
I made this recipe while the boys were outside playing so that they didn’t see that I was adding carrots, however this is certainly a great recipe for the kids to help you make too. To keep it school friendly I didn’t add walnuts, however you can add them if you like.
This slice is soft, chewy and a little crumbly and the perfect way to satisfy my Carrot Cake cravings in a guilt free manner. After a close examination of this ‘special muesli slice’ the boys both tried it and gave it a big thumbs up – thank goodness!
