  1. Very tasty outcome and the topping is delicious. Initially I thought it is rather complicated but as I followed the instructions it was not difficult at all. I added walnuts instead!

  2. These turned out great! I made them dairy free by subbing the butter for 2 Tbsp coconut oil and 2 Tbsp homemade walnut butter. I made them to share with my toddler, so I left out the pecans. I baked a couple as a trial, and they didn’t spread at all. Maybe from subbing the butter or maybe because I packed the ½ cup with too many carrots. I simply flattened the rest before baking. The flavor was fantastic and enjoyed by my whole family. I’ve saved it to make again and will be adding pecans for myself — sounds like a tasty addition!
