Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

The weather is beautiful for the past few days. We have lots of sun and temperatures above 20C (around 70F). Spring has arrived, like definitely. The days have become longer. Everything is green and in bloom. Just lovely.

But what I love the most about Spring is farmers market. It’s full of veggies and colorful fruits. It looks so vibrant. I’m completely mad about CARROTS … and broccoli, spring cabbage and young potatoes. And since this spring Cabbage Carrot Slaw is so popular in my house lately, I decided to make some sweet treat with this Spring veggie. Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies were the obvious choice. They are deliciously sweet, nutty and so full of wonderful flavors. Absolutely irresistible, to all – young and olds.

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 grain 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 – maple syrup. 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!

  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?!?! :D hahaha
