Spice Bars

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com.

3 large carrots
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla paste
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped dates or other dried fruit (Blenheim apricots would be wonderful)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Scrub and scrape the carrots. Cut into even chunks. Place in batter bowl, cover with waxed paper or a plate. Microwave on high 4 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool and then mash them. Measure to have about 3/4 cup or so. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In batter bowl, melt butter 30 seconds on high. Add remaining ingredients, blending well. Pour into a buttered 9 by 13 inch pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
