Directions:
Mix together the eggs, sugar and oil. Beat well. Add carrots and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together (I put the flour through a mesh strainer) and whisk to combine. Add dry ingredients to carrot mixture. Pour into a greased and floured 9"x13" cake pan and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.

Cream together the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and stir until the right consistency. Spread on cooled bars.
