Everything you love about carrot cake - the spices, the sweet and nutty flavors, the cream cheese frosting, and of course, the carrots! - is in this fast and simple lunch. I came up with this recipe while brainstorming new ways to use peanut butter (one of the staples of my vegetarian diet.) This grown-up alternative to the standard PBJ is a sandwich that thinks it's dessert!

This is my new favorite sandwich in the whole world! I love it!! I also tried using maple nut cream cheese, which is delish with this. Thanks for the awesome idea!

When I saw this recipe my first thought was this is either going to be totally awesome or completely terrible. Verdict: totally awesome! I love that its quick, easy, and healthy! All things that I'm looking for in my recipes lately, and it helps that it's also totally delicious. When I ran out of shredded carrots I tried it with (unsauced) broccoli slaw and it was just as good. It feels weird giving 5 stars to a sandwich, but it really is that good.
