This recipe as is only rates a 3 as it would be pretty bland; however with a few other ingredients to spice it up it has the potential to be a 5. Therefore I gave it a 4. I added a 2nd egg per some other suggestions as well as 1/2 tsp of cinnamon 1/4 tsp of nutmeg a dash of ginger and 2 tbsp of white sugar. They were actually very good. My 16 year old raised his eyes at the carrots but ate a couple and said that they would have been better with some chocolate but otherwise were pretty good. My 7 year old turned her nose up at the carrot cookies but after I forced her to try one she sheepishly ate every last crumb and my 2 1/2 year old ate 3 and said "delicious!". With the addition of the spices these were not bland at all. I cooked them for 14 minutes and they were not dry at all either only light and fluffy and yummy... although I may sneak in some semi-sweet choco chips next time instead of the 2 tbsp of sugar.

I thought this was a very nice cookie. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfectly.The texture was light and so was the flavour but thats not to say that they weren't tasty. The lack of sugar is a definite plus. Read More

I think the problem is you just need an extra egg. That should solve the problem since the batter was too dry. However I just added some milk and i used 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of white sugar since I didn't have honey and mine turned out really good. But maybe next time I'll just use 2 eggs and see how it turns out. Read More

I gave this four stars because my kids liked these cookies but only with modifications. It's hard for me to get excited about a cookie unless it has chocolate in it. Per other user's suggestions I added cinnamon nutmeg another egg a little applesauce and 4 tablespoons of sugar just to make sure it was sweet enough for the kiddies to enjoy. I did have to add more flour to make the consistency thicker. Even with all these additions they were still somewhat bland but tasty enough for my kiddos to enjoy which was all that mattered to me anyways. If you want something that is healthy and not overloaded with sugar with the right modifications this might be the cookie for you! Read More

With so much butter sorry they are for sure delicious but quite far from healthy. Honey is healthy but in this amount is also a lot of sugar Read More

I like this recipe. I was looking for a healthy cookie to make for my 2 1/2 year old cookie monster. I added cinnamon a handful of quick oats and some applesauce. They turned out really good. He loved them! Read More
