Morning Sunshine Bars

It must be Spring because I keep 'cleaning' out my kitchen. Today I found 2 ripe bananas on the counter (as per usual) and half a package of dates in the very back of the refrigerator. Add some grated carrots, plain yogurt and the usual pantry staples to the mix and presto!...I had Morning Sunshine Bars.

This cake is great because it is easy to whip up and allows for different ingredients to be added in. For example, dried cranberries would work in place of dates and they can also be made nut-free for those who have allergies.

The cake itself is moist with a snacking cake/muffin texture. It is totally portable which makes it good for picincs and is healthy enough to have for breakfast or to pack in lunches.
