Healthy Carrot and Oatmeal Cookies

Healthy Carrot and Oatmeal Cookies With Easter this coming weekend (in Australia), I was looking for a healthy alternative to chocolate for Master 2. This is not to say he isn’t getting any Easter eggs. He will get plenty. His Nan, Aunty and Uncle are spoiling him so he won’t be getting any chocolate from us this year. He is getting bubble blowers and some healthy cookies instead! I came across an awesome Carrot Cake and Oatmeal Cookie recipe from Amy’s Healthy Baking. Although my recipe isn’t exactly the same because I didn’t have all the ingredients, it is similar and is most certainly inspired by Amy. Thanks Amy! Amy has some great healthy recipes for all the family. As a subscriber to her site, I love her recipes and highly recommend you pop over and sign up too! Amy has an eCookbook, “Table for Two” with recipes making exactly two serves. Check it out here.

  2. In a separate bowl, add the coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract and egg. Whisk ingredients together until they are combined well.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Stir in grated carrots. Mix well.

  4. Place mixture into the fridge (uncovered) for half an hour. Do not leave it to chill for too long or the cookie may become "dense" once baked.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease baking tray or line with baking paper.
  6. Once the dough has chilled for half an hour, remove from the fridge. Use a tablespoon to make cookie balls then flatten them out on the baking tray. Don't forget to leave space between each cookie to allow for rising!
  7. Bake in the oven for about 10 - 15 minutes. The cookies may appear soft but should firm upon cooling. (The image is of my son waiting for the cookies to finish baking!)

  1. Yum! My kind of cookie. I use to bake cookies for Easter too so I wouldn’t have to buy all that candy. I have all ingredients on hand. Some baking to do over spring break.

  2. I love the sound of these cookies. I also love the way your son helps. The concentration on his face is so wonderful. Good to see kids in the kitchen!

  3. These look yum Kelly, and dairy-free, just our style!! I’m thinking you could even sub half the carrot for some grated zucchini for an extra nutrient boost. Will let you know how they turn out!
