I’ve been having serious cravings for carrot cake since like January but didn’t really want to make a whole cake, I know, I know, SO lazy right?! Ha Ha! I mean IT IS my job to get in the kitchen and create recipes but I wanted to make something super quick that was also packed with all the great flavors of a traditional carrot cake. What was born are these delicious cookies that I just KNOW you will fall in love with!
I created these Paleo Carrot Cake Cookies with my friends over at Vitacost and made it easy peasy to grab all of the ingredients I used, just click on either of the previous links. The only ingredients I used that weren’t from there were the carrots and egg. I shop at Vitacost.com to make sure my pantry is always fully stocked! I usually stock up on things like coconut and almond flour, coconut milk, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, etc…so I can make delicious meals and treats like this for my family.
I was SO happy with how great these cookies turned out and how much they really reminded me of my childhood favorite, Carrot Cake, without all the fuss! Originally I wanted to make a frosting to go on top, but they were just too good by themselves!! If you want to make a faux cream cheese frosting, you could use some Kitehill almond cream cheese and add in some maple syrup to up the yumminess level! I made them for Easter this year, and can’t wait tot share them with my friends and family. I hope you enjoy them too!
