Paleo Carrot Cake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 7-8 medjool dates, pitted, diced into tiny pieces + soaked in warm water 10 mins, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.

  2. Add all ingredients to medium sized bowl.

  3. Stir until combined, ensuring date pieces are evenly pressed into the batter to distribute the sweetness.

  4. Drop heaping spoonfuls of batter onto parchment-lined baking sheet, flattening into circular shapes with spoon if needed.

  5. Bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly firm when pressed.

  6. Let cool and transfer to plate or store in airtight container for up to 1 week. Best kept refrigerated.
