Carrot Cake Cookies


Hehe I finally baked something low carb that I would give to company and fight the dog over. Better yet the dog won't turn his nose up at these and will join in the fight. What is it you may ask? Well, another blog I read posted a recipe for Carrot Cake Cookies. I was tentative at first but they looked very good. I must be honest here, one of my favorite desserts is Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. So I looked at the recipe and made some changes. o.O and NV..I promise I will try the brownies soon!!!

Here is my version of Gork's carrot cookies.

1 cup coconut flour
1 cup almond flour
1 cup shredded coconut
2 large carrots ground up
1 medium zucchini (shredded)
1/2 cup sweetener of choice
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp of Cinnamon

1/2 tsp of Nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 T coconut oil
3 eggs (well beaten)

1. Pulse all ingredients but the eggs and vanilla in a food processor until well combined.
2. Add the pulsed ingredients to the beaten eggs and vanilla and mix.
3. Form into cookies and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Frosting
4 oz cream cheese
2 T sweetener
1 tsp vanilla
a dash of cream

Mix all ingredients in a mixer until nice an creamy. Spread on the cooled cookies and enjoy!


Verdict
A very good replacement for carrot cake, and I will be experimenting with these to see what flavors I can make so I can use them as road food, without the frosting ofcourse.
