Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

carrot cake oat cookiesIngredients for 15 cookies (or 8 large cookies)

  • 2 ripe bananas (or 1 cup punpkin puree or sweet potato puree)
  • 1/2 cup (125g) raw peanut butter (or your choice of nut butter), measured
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons coconut sugar (or 3 tablespoons maple syrup or agave or honey)
  • 2 cups (~250g) raw quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (or cinnamon)
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom (optional)
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts (optional – included in the macro count)
  • 1/2 large carrot, grated
Steps
  1. Set oven to 350F.
  2. In a bowl, mash up the banana with a fork.  Then add nut butter and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients (except the walnuts and carrots) and mix well – it should be thick and sticky like cookie batter.
  4. Fold in walnuts and carrots and mix in using your hands.
  5. Line a baking tray with parchment, then use an ice cream scoop to evenly measure out 15 cookies.  Add them to the baking tray and lightly mash down with a fork or spatula to shape the cookie.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the outside is golden brown.  Be careful not to over bake them since they may not change color too much but 10 -12 minutes in the oven should be sufficient.
