Paleo Carrot Cake Cookies

paleo carrot cookies

I am in the process of moving to our lake house for the summer and step one is cleaning out the refrigerator and using up what we have then bring up the rest. I have always hated to waste food and try to be creative in using it up! I love to create new recipes then share them with my lake neighbors over the summer. (they love it too)…

I had a bag of shredded carrots from another recipe for my segment on NBC CT  and am really not a huge fan. I like them in recipes but won’t just cut them and eat them. Not sure why! Anyway – I decided to make cookies. I was actually pleased with them as I tested one and as I handed them out everyone love them! That made me happy!

If you don’t have the already shredded carrots handy then use a hand grater or your food processor!

Ingredients

  • 3 carrots, peeled and shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds, raw and unsalted
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup  unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon good quality vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 3 large eggs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In your food processor add shredded carrots, almonds,  coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg  and vanilla.  Pulse until combined.  Then add in coconut oil then eggs  (one at a time) to combine.
  4. Place batter into a large mixing bowl
  5. Use an ice cream scoop (for same size cookies) and place on the prepared baking sheet.  Press down to create a cookie.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until done

Enjoy!

Note:  If your almonds are whole then chop them up a little first in the food processor then add in carrots and other ingredients.

  1. Is it correct that there is no sweetener in these cookies?

  2. Aimee, The carrots made the cookies sweet enough. I did not add any additional sweetener.
