Specifically carrot cake 😉 But, sometimes you don’t want to make a whole cake, which is why these carrot cake cookies are a perfect alternative!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and grease or line with parchment paper 2 cookie sheet trays .
  2. With a box grater or food processor , grate the carrots. You will need about 2 large carrots if you're not purchasing already shredded ones.
  3. In a large bowl, add the oat flour, protein powder, buckwheat flour, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and baking soda. Stir or whisk to combine.
  4. Add to the bowl the applesauce, sticky sweetener, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract. Stir well until fully incorporated.
  5. Fold in the shredded carrots and raisins.
  6. Measure out 1/4 cup of batter and roll into a ball. Place the ball onto the cookie sheet and press down until the cookie is about 1/4" thick. The dough is a little sticky, so if you wet your hands it will help keep the dough from sticking to them.
  7. Bake for 9-10 min. or until the center of the cookie is slightly springy to the touch and the dough is no longer sticky.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool slightly (about 10 min.) and then transfer them to a wire rack to continue cooling...or just go ahead and eat them!

  1. These are fabulous!!!
  2. What can I use to replace the soy protein powder?
    1. Hi Ray! You could use rice protein powder in its place. Or, if you don't want to use protein powder at all, you could replace it with oat flour.
      1. Could you replace it with coconut flour?☕️
        1. Hi Mandy! I think coconut flour would make the cookies too dry, since it's very absorbent. Almond flour would probably work well as another replacement though!

            I tried these with almond flour and you were absolutely correct! It worked wonderfully. Thank you so much for this recipe that brings fun back into my husband's diet.
          2. Thanks so much for that, Rhiannon! :) I'm so glad the sub worked out and your husband is enjoying some good eats! ;)
  3. Can you use regular gluten free flour as well?
    1. Hi Mallory! I wouldn't suggest using it in place of the oats, but I think it should work in place of the protein powder or buckwheat flour :)
