Easy Oat & Carrot Cookies

WLS-friendly recipe: Easy Oat & Carrot Cookies


Hands up for healthy cookies! Carrots are about 10% carbs, consisting of starch, fiber, and simple sugars. They are extremely low in fat and protein and excellent for immunity.


Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 cup (100g) instant oats
  • ⅔ cup (100g) whole-grain flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp. (75ml) maple syrup



  1. Preheat oven to 340°F (170°C). Mix the oats, flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together, the egg melted and cooled oil, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add in the finely grated carrot and mix again.
  4. Spoon the mixture (1 heaped tablespoon per cookie) onto a baking tray lined with paper and shape into rounds, leaving space between each cookie as they will spread slightly while cooking.
  5. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes until slightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before serving.
