Carrot Cake Bars

These are absolutely divine. 
Super rich, moist and full of goodness! These bars are easy to make, vegan, gluten free and are a perfect breakfast or snack.
You will need-
10 pitted dried dates, blended
10 dried apricots, blended
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
3 carrots, grated
1 tbsp each sultanas, pepitas, crushed walnuts
1 & 1/2 cups gluten free self raising flour
Pinch cinnamon 
1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Mix the blended apricots and dates with the grated carrot & melted coconut oil.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, cinnamon, vanilla,  pepitas, sultanas & walnuts.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and thoroughly combine. 

Spread the mixture into a shallow slice tin. Using wet hands to flatten and spread the mix is easier than using a spoon or spatula.

Bake for 30 minutes and then leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
