Healthy Carrot Cake Blondies with Orange Frosting
I’ll get to the Healthy Carrot Cake Blondies recipe, but I have to tell you something first.
My sister got a puppy!!
He’s a French Bulldog and five months old. He’s a tiny (yet heavy) ball of energy and when he runs he reminds me of a baby pig/cheetah, if that makes sense? But when he’s not running he’s sleeping, whether it’s on your lap, on the floor, in your arms or flat on his back.
He also reminds me of a chubby stuffed sausage… 😉
This makes me laugh just about every time I see it. I hope it makes you smile 🙂
But, a new dog can be expensive! You need to get the food, treats, toys, beds, carseat, etc. so I thought I would bake something up for her so she could have a few less meals to think about and a few more hours to play with/walk/train her little puppy. My sister loved my healthified Carrot Cake, but I didn’t have any tofu or yogurt on hand so I chose to make something else instead. I swear, I thought I was done with the blondies… but then I remembered how delicious they were and needed to make them again. Plus, it’s one more flavor I get to cross of my “blondie flavor to-do list.”
These Healthy Carrot Cake Blondies are sweet, chewy and dense. Even with one whole cup of grated carrot, my sister and I couldn’t taste any vegetables at all! If you were to eat these blindfolded, you would think you were eating a cinnamon roll (seriously, they tasted like Cinnabons). These blondies are moist and decadent, but healthy… enjoy!
If that doesn’t scream “guilt free!!!” I don’t know what does.
PS: Please let me know if you have any healthy/natural homemade dog treat recipes! I’d love to make something for that adorable stuffed sausage little puppy 😉
