Cream Cheese Swirled Carrot Cake Bars

Yield: 9″  X 13″

INGREDIENTS:

cake batter
  • 1 cup finely shredded carrots (I used two large carrots and a box grater)
  • 1 cup sugar (may reduce to ¾ up if desired)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cup flour
cream cheese swirl
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (light or fat free are okay)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line and grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl combine carrots, sugar, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla and mix well. Add baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and flour and mix until combined. Spread batter in your prepared pan.
  3. In a medium bowl mix cream cheese sugar, vanilla, flour, and egg until smooth. Drizzle over the top of your cake batter. Use a knife to swirl the cream cheese mixture into the batter.
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars and serving. Store in airtight container chilled or at room temperature.
