When I was sharing my absolutely favorite cookies recipes with you, I forgot the carrot ones, so here it comes. Sorry for delay, I really don’t know how it happened!
For 20 cookies:
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 2tbsp. (30ml) of organic grounded flax seeds
- 6 tbsp. (90ml) of water
- 3/4 cup (187.5ml) of organic oat flour
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic buckwheat flour
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of tapioca starch
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of baking powder
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of xanthan gum
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of cinnamon
- 2/3 cup (166ml) of organic coconut oil (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic brown sugar

- 1/2 cup (125ml) of chopped roasted organic walnuts
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic dried blueberries
- Preheat your oven to 350º.
- On a cookie sheet, spread your raw nuts and put them in the oven for 10 minutes. Take them out and let them cool for 5 minutes, remove the skin and chop them. (This step could be made ahead)
- Preheat your oven to 375º.
- In a small bowl, mix the flax seeds and the water and set aside for 10 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, combine the oat flour, the buckwheat flour, the tapioca starch, the baking powder, the xanthan gum, the salt and the cinnamon.
- In a bigger bowl, cream the coconut oil and the brown sugar. Add in the shredded carrots, the flax seeds mix, the vanilla, the almond milk and mix until it’s all well blended.
- Combine the flour to your mix, then add your chopped nuts and dried blueberries.
- Put about 2 tbsp. of batter on your cookie sheet and cook them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
- When you remove them from the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes before you transfer them on a wire rack.
- Enjoy them because soon they’ll be gone!
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“I loved it so much, I do not know how to explain it using words. It was awesome, tasty and awesome and tasty AND SIMPLY DELICIOUS AND EXCELLENT, OKAY?”
“I was amazed by the fact carrot cookies can be so good, really didn’t believe in them, but boy, was I stupid. They’re delicious as hell, trust me, and your kids will love them, without even knowing they’re actually doing something good for their health”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
