These chewy cookies are a great addition to any meal prep menu. They’re as simple as mixing up some ingredients, baking, and stuffing your cheeks with them until you look like the Easter bunny. They’re also packed with healthy fats from the almond butter and almond flour, potassium from the bananas, and vitamin A, beta carotene, and fiber from the shredded carrots. This is a carrot cake recipe that you’ll feel good about starting your day with.

They’re also customizable depending on your taste preferences. I opted for a coconut butter glaze on top, but you could also top them with some raw walnuts or shredded coconut. Dried pineapple or raisins also make great mix ins.

These carrot cake cookies also freeze well. make a big batch and store them in a freezer safe container to have carrot cake for breakfast (or lunch or dinner or a snack!) whenever you like.

190 g - Bananas - About 2 medium bananas, peeled

100 g - Carrots - Grated*

128 g - Almond Butter - Sub: nut or seed butter of choice

40 ml - Maple Syrup

120 g - Oat Flour

60 g - Almond Flour

½ tsp - Vanilla Extract

¾ tsp - Almond Extract

¼ tsp - Nutmeg

1 tsp - Cinnamon

½ tsp - Ground Ginger

½ tsp - Cardamom - Optional

¼ tsp- Salt

Optional Stir Ins:


Dried Pineapple

Crushed Almonds

Crushed Pecans

Flaked Coconut

Optional Coconut Butter Glaze:

24 g - Coconut Butter*

8 ml - Maple Syrup


Preheat oven to 350F.

In a bowl, mix oat flour, almond flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground ginger, cardamom, and salt.

In another bowl, add bananas. Mash the bananas. Add almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the bowl.

Mix the wet ingredients into dry. Stir in grated carrots.

Let dough rest in the fridge for about 20 minutes*.

Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop or wet hands, roll out the dough into 15 balls. Press down on them to create a cookie shape.

Bake for 20 minutes or until browned on the edges.

Remove from the oven. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

If making the coconut butter glaze, after cookies have cooled, place cookies in the freezer* for 20 minutes.

While cookies are in the freezer, add coconut butter and maple syrup to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir until melted and combined.

Remove cookies from the freezer. Using a spoon or fork, drizzle coconut butter over them. Place cookies in the fridge and allow to set.

Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for up to a month.


- Grate the carrots as finely as possible. Carrots release their sugars the more they are cut. The finer you grate the carrots the sweeter they will be.

- Make sure you use coconut butter NOT coconut oil

- Letting the dough chill will make it easier to work with.

- Placing the cookies in the freezer will allow the coconut butter to harden onto the cold cookies.
