These Frosted Carrot Cookies are an easy way to add some veggies to your breakfast or afternoon snack. They’re lightly sweetened and taste great with or without the frosting! 



4 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup shredded carrots (squeeze in paper towel to remove excess moisture)
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp ground flax
2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp vanilla yogurt
2 Tbsp powdered sugar


  1. In a large bowl, mix melted butter, maple syrup, vanilla, eggs and carrots until well combined.
  2. Add flour, oats, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda and flax and stir until just mixed.
  3. Scoop onto greased or lined baking sheet, flatten gently with a fork and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
  4. If frosting, let cookies cool completely. Combine softened cream cheese, yogurt and powdered sugar and stir vigorously to remove any lumps.
  5. Spread lightly on cookies just before serving.
