Banana Carrot Bars

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

These are such an easy, yummy snack! This is one of my favorites to make for my toddler because it is full of carrots, something my toddler doesn’t usually eat by itself.

I don’t like to always hide veggies, but while my toddler is learning to like carrots I love to add them into as many things as I can that he is more willing to eat. He knows they are in these bars, but doesn’t care because they are so delicious.

What You Will Need

  1. Bananas- gives these bars a super sweet taste
  2. Nut butter- any nut butter will do
  3. Carrot- I use the food processor to cut them up into tiny pieces.
  4. Oats- rolled oats
  5. Chocolate chips- optional, but makes this so yummy!

Substitutions

  1. Nut Butter- you can also use sunflower seed butter

Storage

You can store these on the counter for 2 days, the fridge for 5 days, and the freezer for up to two months!
