These bars are easy to make. You toss all your wet ingredients into a blender, then stir it into the flour + sugar, fold in your add ins and you're done. I think the whole batch takes maybe 10 minutes to prepare.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment and set aside.
Whisk together the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, blend the chickpeas, banana and applesauce in a blender until completely smooth.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, reserving the carrot, apple, pecans and raisins. Pour the chickpea puree into the bowl along with the flax egg and mix to combine. Fold in the remaining ingredients.
Dump the batter into the prepared pan. Bake on the center rack for 25 - 28 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool in the pan for 10 - 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. (if you want to use a frosting, you could use the one I put on my carrot cake bars!)
Slice into 12 - 16 bars. Store in an airtight container for 2 - 3 days.
