" got this recipe from my friend Lauren’s website – I switched it up at bit though. My version is slightly less healthy, but still healthy! It’s a good way to use up carrots too, I don’t know if most people have this problem, but our carrots always end up going bad before we can eat them all. These cookies are also Cat and Abi approved!"


  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (butter would work too) 
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips, or as many as you want! I never measure chocolate chips.          

  • 2 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • milk, if needed

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
  2. Mix coconut oil, brown sugar and maple syrup until light and fluffy. 
  3. Stir in egg, vanilla and carrot. 
  4. Mix dry ingredients separately, then mix them in (don’t over mix).
  5. Spoon cookies onto greased pan and cook for 8- 10 min, or until golden brown. 
  6. For the glaze: mix all glaze ingredients together until smooth. Add a little milk if needed- to reach a smooth drizzly consistency. Drizzle over slightly cooled cookies and serve.
