This makes a relatively healthy, cake-like cookie that is a bit like a mix between carrot cake and oatmeal cookies. I adjusted a few different recipes to use less sugar and more oats and carrots so that I don't feel too bad eating these for breakfast (which I can't resist)!

  • Combine honey and coconut oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add carrots and eggs and mix well.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Mix in oats, raisins, and walnuts until well distributed.

  • Drop large spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets and flatten with a fork, if desired.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are a golden color, about 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

You can use butter instead of coconut oil, and any dried fruit in place of raisins. If you'd like, use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose flour.

I love cinnamon, so I use a lot. If you prefer a less spiced taste, reduce the amount of cinnamon.

I really enjoy these cookies! They remind me very much of carrot cake flavor-wise, and they have the added bonus of using better-for-you ingredients. I took the advice from the recipe submitter's notes and used butter in place of coconut oil, and whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose. I also used pure maple syrup instead of honey. I made a half batch, and got 21 cookies out of the recipe using my medium cookie scoop. They were baked perfectly in 13-14 minutes at 350 (my oven runs a bit hot so I baked at 350 vs 375). Great cookies! Thank you for the recipe! Read More
