Carrot Cake Cookies

My mom keeps telling me I should be baking things that are healthier.  She had a couple of friends over to our house the other night and asked me to make something.  While these probably aren’t as healthy as Halie’s brownies they are good.  I figured carrot cake cookies have carrots in them and that’s a vegetable!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup all- purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup packed, finely grated, peeled carrots
  • 1 cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 3500F
  2. Whisk together butter, sugars, and egg yolk.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the flour, ginger, and salt.
  4. Add flour mixture to sugar, butter, and egg mixture.
  5. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  6. Add in oats, carrots and golden raisins and combine.
