Carrot Halwa Blondie

Carrot Halwa Blondie

Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last month.We kept it low key and enjoyed  family dinner at our back patio, with array of our favorite dishes. I was looking for a dessert which echos the fusion of American and Indian taste buds. Thats when i  came across Carrot Halwa Blondie.It has all the elements of carrot halwa but instead of being Halwa, it is cake like,sweet dessert.I knew my husband would take a bite on it 🙂

  • I also used Whole wheat pastry flour and coconut sugar for the recipe.
  • I didn’t shred the carrots.I microwaved and coarse pureed it in blender.It was 1/4 cup more then the recipe asked for.I just had more carrots and i took a chance. Didn’t wanted it to go waste 🙂
