Here's a creamy version of carrot cake we bet you won't be able to resist. Our Crumbly Carrot Cake Bars taste like the perfect combination of carrot cake and cheesecake. They're just as great for serving on Easter Sunday as they are for bringing along to any friendly potluck.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrots (2 to 3 carrots)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the baking soda, cinnamon, and butter; beat with an electric mixer until it crumbles. Stir in carrots, walnuts, and 1 teaspoon vanilla; mix well. Reserve 2 cups of the mixture; press remaining mixture into bottom of baking dish.
  3. Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Add eggs and remaining teaspoon vanilla; mix well.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture over crust. Sprinkle reserve crumbs on top.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until cheesecake layer is set. Let cool, then refrigerate at least 3 hours or until chilled. Slice into bars and serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Easy to make. I thought it needed more cinnamon. I'm also going to add coconut in place of some of the oats.

bars are made purposely to be thick we loved them thankyou mr food keep them coming

I recently made this but it did not turn out as good as I expected. The bottom crust is much, much too thick and dry. If I made this again I would use half the crust recipe. The cheesecake part was OK.
