  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sweetener (I used ¼ Cup coconut palm sugar & ¼ Cup VitaFiberIMO powdered sugar)

  • 1 Cup Shredded Carrot, packed
  • 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

  • Crushed Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Line 8×8 dish with parchment paper or grease.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside (add cranberries, walnuts & shredded carrot in after all combined).
