    Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

    By Sara Stewart

    Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies. Healthy enough for breakfast, indulgent enough for dessert. That’s the kind of fall treat we’re aaaall about!

    Gluten Free, Dairy Free



    • 1 cup Happy Day gluten free rolled oats
    • ¾ cup Happy Day Brands Oat Flour or gluten free flour blend (you can also substitute all purpose flour)
    • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
    • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    • ⅛ tsp salt
    • 3 tbsp coconut oil. melted
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • ½ cup maple syrup (or honey)
    • ¾ cup grated carrots


    • 1/2 cup vegan butter (softened to room temperature, butter sticks are best)
    • 1 8-ounce container vegan cream cheese (slightly softened out of the fridge for 1 hour)
    • 3 - 5 cups sifted organic powdered sugar



      1. In a bowl, combine oats, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate (larger) bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, vanilla, and maple syrup (or honey). Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until a smooth dough forms. Fold in carrots. Chill dough in the freezer for 15 minutes or the refrigerator for 45 minutes.
      2. Preheat the oven to 325°F, and grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil (or, alternatively, line with parchment paper).
      3. Scoop cookie dough into 1" - 1.5" balls and drop onto the baking sheet.  Bake at 325°F for 12-15 minutes. 
      Icing (recipe adapted from Minimalist Baker):
      1. To a large mixing bowl, add softened butter and beat or whisk vigorously to combine. Then add vegan cream cheese and mix again until creamy and smooth.
      2. Add sifted powdered sugar in 1 cup increments until thick and spreadable and to desired sweetness.
      3. You want this frosting to be pretty thick so it won’t slide around, so keep adding powdered sugar until it reaches the right consistency.
      4. Refrigerate after frosting to keep fresh (up to 5 days).
      5. Enjoy!
