Carrot Cake Oat Walnut Vegan Cookies

Ingredients for 15 cookies (or 8 large cookies)

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 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

Step 1

Set oven to 350F.

Step 2

In a bowl, mash up the banana with a fork. Then add nut butter and vanilla extract and mix well.

Step 3

Add the remaining ingredients (except the walnuts and carrots) and mix well – it should be thick and sticky like cookie batter.

Step 4

Fold in walnuts and carrots and mix in using your hands.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 7

Allow them to slightly cool on a baking tray or a paper towel before enjoying.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
