Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 15 by 10 jelly roll pan with non stick cooking spray. Set aside. Steam carrots and water, until carrots are very soft. Mash and set aside to cool.

In large bowl, beat egg substitute with sugar for about 2 minutes. Add oil and beat again. Add buttermilk, applesauce, cooled carrot puree and vanilla, and beat to mix.
Combine flour, ground oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and walnuts. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and stir just to mix. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until center sprints back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack.

Beat softened cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar together until smooth. Spread over cooled bars. Store tightly covered, in refrigerator.
