The weather is beautiful here in Croatia. Last few days we have lots of sun and temperatures are above 20C (around 70F). Spring has arrived, that’s for sure…. The days have become longer. Everything is green and in bloom. Just lovely.

Don’t you just loveeee farmer’s market at this time of year? It’s full of green veggies and colorful fruits. It looks so vibrant. And now you probably ask yourself, why did I decide to make these cookies instead of some veggie stew or some spring salad?! …. Okay, okay … I’ll share some spring stew recipe soon, I promise… BUT first… THESE cookies. WHY? Because we all LOVE cookies … + These oatmeal cookies are made with super healthy CARROTS that are totally in the season now.

If you liked my Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies, then you’ll like these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies too. These cookies are super easy to make, and you only need few simple ingredients which you’ve probably have in the house already.

To make these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies I used whole grains – rolled oats full of healthy dietary fibers and proteins, and whole wheat flour. I also added some ground walnuts in the mixture. Walnuts enriched cookies with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and essential minerals. 

Instead of butter, I used healthy coconut oil, and to sweet up cookies I used natural sweetener – honey. I spiced these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies with beautiful fragrant vanilla and super healthy ginger. Yummy!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies are soft and chewy on the inside, very thick and not crumbly at all. Even after few days stored in airtight container. That is of course if they last that long.

In my house, these cookies really don’t last long. Even my husband, who isn’t a fan of carrots like AT ALL, devours these cookies like some maniac. Actually, everyone loves these cookies… kids, family, friends, neighbors (ohhh… especially my recipe-testing neighbors)… I just yell “cookies” and watch how cookies are disappearing from a plate. 

Hope you’ll like these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies. Make a bunch… and enjoy!

    • Kids and carrots right?! heheh I actually have two in house who doesn’t love carrots but both somehow love these cookies 🙂 I hope you’ll kiddo will like it too! Thanks friend!

  3. I love carrot cake and I love oatmeal cookies so I know that I’m gonna love these. Sounds so delish!

  4. Well I have one daughter that does not like/eat carrots. Maybe if I put them in cookies it would work. I on the other hand love carrot cake, but am the only person in my family that does. These would be great…since eating a whole cake by myself is never an option.

    • My kiddo was sceptical first time he saw these cookies. He was “concerned” about those “orange stripes” on top.. I told them that these are orange zest (LOL) …. and after he tried one he’s was not concerned anymore. He liked it of course 🙂 Now when he asks to bake him orange cookies I’m like what?!?! 😀 hahaha

  5. I’m so glad Spring has finally came to you Natalie. These carrot cake cookies look amazing and it definitely is a great time to be thinking carrots. Love how healthy you made cookies..YEAH 🙂

  6. I am all about all things carrot cake, especially breakfast cookies! These sound so good! I love that you used natural sweeteners in the recipe too. Yum!

  7. A healthier cookie, yay! Perfect for the time of the year and I have been craving cookies lately, although I don’t have a sweet tooth. Thanks for sharing your recipe. 😉

  8. A blend of two great treats – carrot cakes and oatmeal cookies! Cake sometimes is a bit of a thing to eat – plate, knife, fork … cookies are grab and go! What a great way to get the best of both worlds!

  9. Definitely a perfect spring treat! These cookies look delicious, Natalie! Cute dishes, too.🙂

  10. This carrot cake oatmeal cookies looks perfect treat for spring. I am fan of carrot cake but this one is really healthy and can eat without any calorie fear.

  11. Who does not like cookies and that too made with healthy ingredients. This almost sounds like a packed bundle of carrot cake with added goodness. I love to bake with whole wheat flour and this is a perfect recipe!

  12. This is an amazing idea, easy and perfect for portion control. My husband loves carrot cake is hsi favorite I bet he would love to try these cookies too =)

  13. This looks fabulous and I always try make cookies at home. I love the combination of fresh carrot+ginger that you’ve used as they would make the cookies even more flavorful n fresh.

  14. They must be delicious. Thank you, Natalie. We’re glad that our enamelware makes you happy! 🙂

  15. My favorite cake and my favorite grain – how can I not love this! This would be such a huge hit in my entire family and as always love that it’s clean whole food!

  16. Carrot cake cookies sound perfect for Easter and not only, I could munch on them all day long without even feeling guilty in the slightest. They are not only delicious, but also a lot healthier than the store-bought cookies, so another reason to have one too many.

  17. Carrot cake has always been one of my favourites, but I rarely have the time to make one – well, maybe not the time, just not the desire. LOL. I love to make cookies, and these would be much less cumbersome to store. I’m in!

  18. I LOVE the look and sound of these. I love carrot cake, but don’t have time to slice and eat with a fork. A carrot cake in cookie form is PERFECT!

  19. Yum, ginger and carrots together sound lovely! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  20. I love the “stealth” healthy component in these cookies. Yummy!

  21. I really love carrot cake, you make it, even more, healthier by adding oatmeal, thanks for this

  22. Looks delicious! I’ll definitely try this!
