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 🙂 Original recipe is for bar and uses 11 by 15 inch pan.I used 9 by 13.So mine was not a bar but it was more of moist cake which we liked. 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.
