OATMEAL CARROT COOKIES

Oatmeal cookies are my favorite to make. They are so versatile, you can have a different one every day. This new version with shredded carrots is joining the ranks. These Oatmeal Carrot Cookies are soft, moist and taste like carrot cake! You can make these cookies with zucchini or apples as well.

HOW TO MAKE OATMEAL COOKIES WITH CARROTS?

  • Start by peeling carrots. Shreed on the small hole side of your grater. You don't want long strings of carrots in your cookies. I do that in my The Best Moist Carrot Cake recipe too.
  • Whisk dry ingredients in mixing bowl.
  • Whisk cooled butter with both sugars, egg and vanilla. Stir in carrots.
  • Combine both mixtures, cover bowl and chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Bake cookies for 9 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

    I made these for the first time today, but it won't be the last! I realized after I started putting the ingredients together that I didn't have any butter in the house! I already had much of the batter put together so I took a chance and used a cup of canola oil. I also forgot to chill the batter, but they turned out great! I also added an extra egg after reading a comment on here about that.
