•1 cup mashed banana or ¾ cup unsweetened apple sauce – see note
•¼ cup maple syrup (replace with manuka honey
•2 tablespoon non-dairy milk
•1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract or flesh from 1 vanilla bean
•½ cup coconut flour
•½ cup unflavored protein powder (substitute with something else like teff)

1.Preheat oven to 375F and line an baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
2.Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl with a hand or stand mixer.
3.Whisk dry ingredients in a small bowl. Once incorporated, add to the wet mix and mix until smooth.
4.Add shredded carrots and raisins. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes to thicken up.
5.Scoop approximately ⅓ cup at a time into your hand. Shape into a bar and place on prepared baking sheet. You can also shape the bars on the baking sheet, I found that was easiest.
6.Bake bars for 22-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean, the bottoms of the bars or golden, and the tops are cracking slightly.
7.Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack
8.Once cooled completely, top with a drizzle of coconut butter.
