Carrot-Walnut Power Cookies

Carrot-walnut power cookies are a nutritious and delicious treat packed with wholesome ingredients like carrots, oats, walnuts, and honey. These cookies are perfect for a quick energy boost or as a healthier dessert option. Here’s how to make them:


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup grated carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  1. Mix the Wet Ingredients:
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, warm the honey (or maple syrup), almond butter (or peanut butter), and unsweetened applesauce until they are easy to mix together. This helps make the mixture smoother.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Mix until everything is well combined.
  1. Combine with Dry Ingredients:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, grated carrots, chopped walnuts, and raisins (or dried cranberries).
  • Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is thoroughly combined. The mixture should be sticky and hold together.
  1. Shape the Cookies:
  • Drop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  • Use the back of a spoon or your fingers to gently flatten and shape each cookie. You can make them as thick or as thin as you prefer.
  1. Bake:
  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden around the edges.
  1. Cool:
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  1. Enjoy:
  • Once the carrot-walnut power cookies have cooled, enjoy them as a nutritious snack or dessert.

These cookies are a great way to incorporate carrots and other wholesome ingredients into your diet. They are also customizable, so feel free to add other ingredients like shredded coconut, chia seeds, or dark chocolate chips for extra flavor and texture. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days.
