Carrot cake Breakfast cookies

Carrot, oatmeal, and raisin cookies, full of spices and flavor. Finish these cookies with a lemon glaze.

These cookies are one of my favorites for two reasons: they are the perfect combination between a carrot cake and an oatmeal cookie, and best of all, you can use the pulp left over when you make carrot juice.

About this recipe

Carrot cake breakfast cookies are made with wholesome ingredients such as oatmeal and grated carrots, providing a good source of fiber, protein, and other essential nutrients.

This means they can help keep you full and energized throughout the morning. These carrot breakfast cookies are easy to make and can be prepared beforehand, making them a convenient option for busy mornings.

As I did, you can customize the recipe by adding your favorite nuts, seeds, or spices or with lemon icing.

Ingredients for making carrot cookies


  • Flaxseed and water. In the vegan world, flaxseed with water acts as an egg.
  • All-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and spices.
  • Oat flakes
  • Grated carrots can be freshly grated, or you can use the pulp of the juice.
  • Raisins, you can use cranberries, walnuts, whatever you like.
  • Maple syrup and vanilla extract.

How to make the best carrot cookies

  1. The first thing to do is to mix the flaxseed with water and let it hydrate.
  2. The second thing is to mix the powders in a bowl. Then add the rest of the ingredients, and mix. Allow all the ingredients to integrate, let it stand for about 3 minutes, and blend again until it is a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Shape the cookies and bake.
  4. While the cookies are in the oven, prepare the icing. It is not necessary to do so; it depends on your taste.

Tips to make the best cookies

The dough takes time to integrate, so make them slowly. Let the dough rest for a few minutes to give it time to incorporate if you struggle to bring it together.

This is a sticky dough; it is easier to make the cookies with an ice cream scoop. Spray it with cooking spray to make it easier to make the cookies.

When you put them on the baking sheet, flatten them a little to form the cookie so they bake better. They are ready when firm to the touch.

About lemon glaze

My kids like them with lemon icing, but this is optional. How much and how sweet you make the icing is optional.

You may like a very thick glaze or a very smooth glaze. This is another reason to make these carrot cookies; you can make them 100% to your liking.
