The other day I was on one of my favorite blogs, Carrots ‘n’ Cake, and I saw that Tina had posted about making Carrot Cake Cookies. I was instantly intrigued. Raisins + Carrots + Maple Syrup = One Delicious Cookie.
I did the cookie tasting test on my date the other night and he loved them. So much so that I sent most of what was left of the batch home with him. Thanks Tina! 🙂

The recipe was such was not only easy to make, but also easy to clean up, using only one bowl. It made about 15 cookies, which were gone in no time. Chewy and delicious…but my date suggested putting cream cheese icing on them, like real carrot cake. May just have to do that next time!
these look really good..what do you think about making them a bit larger, and filling with cream cheese frosting for a “whoopie pie” affect? of course that would change them from relatively healthy to off the charts…but it might be fun for a dinner party dessert.
YUM!!! Another baked good that I consider “healthy” enough to eat 5 of!! haha. Looks delicious!!

These cookies look fantastic! I love carrot cake, and just posted a recipe for vegan carrot cake ice cream. The ice cream would go great between two of these cookies as a double carrot cake ice cream sandwich :).
Yum! I want to try one! You should give these cookies a shot– they’re white chocolate raspberry macadamia cookies and they’re amazing!
I guess kathryn didn’t read the recipe considering youre allergic
