No Bake Keto Carrot Cake Bars

This no-bake keto carrot cake recipe turns low-carb ingredients into scrumptious, healthy cake bars with only 3 net carbs! Keto, Vegan, and Paleo!

  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Yield: 9 Bars 1x



Cake Bars

  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated Monk Fruit*
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup almond butter, no sugar added
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free syrup ( I use Monk Fruit Syrup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 oz. container dairy-free cream cheese (I used Kite Hill)
  • 1 cup powdered swerve
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 


  1. Line an 8X8 inch cake pan lined with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all of the wet and dry ingredients and mix them together. 
  3. Pour the batter mixture into the pan and press it down evenly. Place in the fridge for an hour. 
  4. Make the icing by adding the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whipping using a handheld mixer. Mix for 40 seconds or until combined. 
  5. Remove the pan from the fridge. Using a spatula, frost the top of the bars evenly. Cut into 9 pieces and enjoy!


Mac’s Pro Tips

  • These keto carrot cake bars have the same consistency as a Lara bar, but with an added frosting on top! 
  • If you are not strictly keto, feel free to sub coconut sugar for the granulated monk fruit, and real maple syrup for the sugar-free monk fruit syrup.
  • If you are not dairy-free, you can swap the non-dairy items for regular dairy products.

Storage Tips

  • Fridge: Store bars in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • Freezer: These bars are also freezer friendly and can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months! Make sure to cool completely to room temperature before storing and freezing. My favorite way to eat them is straight from the freezer.
