Itty Bitty Carrot Cake Cookies

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 20, 2010

Well, my dear readers you have done it again. Thank you so much for voting for me in the Project Food Blog video challenge. I received the Reader’s Choice award. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to vote for me each round. :)

I was grateful that I moved on because I have been working hard on Challenge #8 for a couple weeks now and I am excited to show it to you next week (it’s due Nov. 28th). I’m hoping to finish baking + shooting my entry this weekend because I’m flying out West to visit family next weekend and won’t have time to do it then.

I thought I would share with you a booty-kicking treadmill interval workout that I have been enjoying lately when the weather is too poor to run outside. It whips my butt and leaves me drenched in sweat.

Treadmill Interval Workout:

  • Warm up: 5 mins of walking
  • Running 0.25 mile repeats (6.0mph, incline 4% & 7.0 mph, incline 2%) <—I switch every 1/4 mile
  • Abs: After every mile, I pause the workout, drink water, and do two ab planks for 60 seconds
  • Distance: 3-4.5 miles (depending on how long I can go)
  • Cool down: 5 minutes of walking
  • Stretch/yoga poses/meditation for 5 mins.


It is one of the hardest workouts I have done in a while. The beauty of it is that you can switch up the times and inclines to suit your own needs. The workout is tough, but it goes by much quicker than if you just did 35 minutes all at the same pace and incline. The key to preventing indoor workout boredom is to keep switching it up as much as possible.

During my workout last night, I was dreaming about fun cookie flavours and I suddenly got the urge to make a carrot cake cookie.

A cookie that would be fabulous crumbled over a hot bowl of oats or in a Vegan Overnight Oat parfait.

A breakfast carrot cake cookie.

Or a mid-morning snack type of cookie.

Or a ‘it’s-4’oclock-and-I-want-to-inhale-the-vending-machine’ cookie.

Really, this is an anytime, just-because bite-sized cookie.



Itty Bitty Carrot Cake Cookies

These mini cookies are soft yet crunchy, delicate, moist, bite-sized, and most of all, they taste just like carrot cake in cookie form!

Inspired by 101 Cookbooks.

print this recipe!


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I’m sure other flours would work!)
  • 1/4 cup regular oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4-1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots, packed
  • 1/4 cup raisins, soaked in water overnight
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, warmed for about 25 seconds in microwave
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


Directions: Preheat oven to 350F and line 1 baking sheet with parchment or a non-stick mat. Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and oats in a large bowl. Add in the nuts, coconut, raisins, and shredded carrots. In a small bowl mix the maple syrup, softened coconut oil, vanilla, and freshly grated ginger. Add this to the flour mixture and stir until combined.

Drop about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough onto lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Shape into a ball with hands. Bake for about 12 minutes and cool for 10 minutes on a baking rack.

Yield: 15 bite-sized cookies.

Nutritional info: (per cookie): 54kcals, 2 grams fat, 8 grams carbs, 1 gram fibre, 1 gram protein, 5 grams sugar.


Did you guys notice I got a Recipe Print function finally?? :) Hope it works for you!

If you want juicy and plump raisins in your baked goods, soak them for a couple hours or overnight in water!


The raisins doubled in sized. Bliss.


On a side note, sometimes shooting recipes in the early morning (before French Press or tea) is not the best idea. I was fumbling all over the place and I dropped my camera twice this morning! Luckily it seems to have made it out ok…but I nearly had a heart attack.

Gather up your dry ingredients…


The wet ingredients…


If you can’t get your hands on some coconut oil, I would guess that olive oil might work too.

Add wet to dry and mix…the batter will be very moist and saturated. This is a good thing. :)


Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of batter and shape into a ball. Make 15 balls if you want bite-sized cookies.


That’ll do.


Now bake for 12 minutes at 350F. Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes so they can firm up a bit as they will be very delicate.


The result is a very moist, delicate, soft yet crunchy, bite-sized cookie that tastes just like carrot cake!


Start to finish I was done and had a cookie in my mouth in under 30 minutes flat. :)

If you are a carrot cake fan, you might also enjoy my Healthy Carrot Cake Power Scuffins.

I probably won’t have time to post again until Monday because I’m going to be up to my ears in pumpkin for Challenge 8 all weekend. Good times, good times. ;) Have a great weekend!

Congrats on making it through, Ange. These carrot cake cookies look awesome. I would love one in some yogurt!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with for the next project!


Allison November 20, 2010 at 10:20 am

Oh yum! I love carrot cake:) I’ll be making it for Thanksgiving this year:) These cookies might just get made too:):)

I cant wait to see what you do for the next challenge!!!!


Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun November 20, 2010 at 10:20 am

Oh that sounds like such an AWESOME workout. I am stock piling ideas for after this baby comes. I feel like it has been so long since I’ve done something like that. I’m still working out regularly but I miss things like intervals and more intensity. Thanks for sharing it!


Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) November 20, 2010 at 10:21 am

Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! These cookies look and sound absolutely heavenly.


JenATX November 20, 2010 at 10:26 am

Liana @ femme fraiche November 20, 2010 at 10:29 am

Congrats on making it to the next round! And your treadmill workout sounds tempting…but totally killer. I think I’ll save that for the day before a day off!!

Carrot cake…mmm…and in a size you don’t have to feel guilty about:)


Danielle November 20, 2010 at 10:33 am

Those look amazing! Carrot cake is my absolute favorite dessert so I will have to try these soon — probably for Thanksgiving on Thursday :)

I always eat my raisins like that and I love it — when I buy a new box, I simply pour them in a container, boil some water on the stovetop and pour it over the raisins (enough to cover the raisins 3/4 of the way). Then I simply plop the lid on, let cool then place them in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week. Not only do the raisins get nice and soft, but the water turns into a juice that absorbs the flavor of the raisins and gets deliciously sweet :) Sometimes I pour a bit of this juice over my oats in the morning for a bit of sweetness :)


Healthy_Chocoholic November 20, 2010 at 10:41 am

Lookin good!!!! Bite size means you get to eat 2…..or 3, heck who am I kidding? You eat 14. Because they’re so small and cute, its a shame to neglect them, I think.


Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather November 20, 2010 at 10:47 am

They’re so mini and cute! Perfect one biters :) Thanks for sharing Angela. I look forward to seeing what you have in stock for us soon.


stacey-healthylife November 20, 2010 at 10:50 am

Ashley (Taste for Healthy) November 20, 2010 at 11:37 am

Congrats on the Reader’s Choice!!!

Congrats, again, Angela! I am so happy that you are getting what you truly deserve! Pretty much every post that you write could win an award, in my book! Especially this one… these cookies look so cute and delicious!


Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg November 20, 2010 at 12:14 pm

You have READ my mind– I was just thinking about how nice it would be if someone would create a recipe for carrot cake balls! Yum!


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table November 20, 2010 at 12:21 pm

Congrats on moving forward! I defintiely voted. :)

These cookies look great – and the nutritional info is fantastic. A couple cookies would be perfect for a quick snack for a pre-dinner workout.


Amber K November 20, 2010 at 12:31 pm

I can’t wait to see the next challenge! I really love the ones you have done so far.


grocery goddess jen November 20, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Congrats on advancing to the next round! I am sure all your hard work will pay off! Hope you have some time to relax this weekend, too.


Katy (The Singing Runner) November 20, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Oooo these look great! I may have to make them today! :)

Congratulations by the way!


[email protected] November 20, 2010 at 12:52 pm

Congrats on the award and thanks for the tip about soaking your raisins first before baking them! Good idea :-)


Sara November 20, 2010 at 1:07 pm

These look absolutely delicious! I just popped them in the oven, let’s see if mine are even half as beautiful as yours!

I made your red quinoa soup last night for a dinner party of non-vegetarians and they were LOVING it. I think I may have added more quinoa than called for, because the consistency was somewhere between chili and soup, and all for the better! The quinoa almost takes on the texture of ground meat (gross) but pleasing to carnivores.

Where are you headed out West? We’d love to see you in Vancouver!!!


Teresa November 20, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Great timing for this recipe. I am going to visit my sister this weekend and wanted to take her a special treat. These are perfect, my nephew loves carrot cake! What a great suprise for him!


Ashley November 20, 2010 at 1:10 pm

Those look amazing. I love carrot cake. Congrats on Project Foodblog!


Wei-Wei November 20, 2010 at 1:19 pm

Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' November 20, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Congrats on making it to the next round! I’m routin’ for ya! ;)

I love carrot cake! It was my absolute favorite growing up, and I asked for it for my birthday every year. Now, I prefer cookies over cake– you must have read my mind!! Can’t wait to try these!!


carol November 20, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Congrats!!!!!!!! I never doubted that you would do great. Good luck! Can I leave out the coconut in this recipe? I don’t like coconut very much. Thanks.


Melissa @ I Never Imagined November 20, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Congrats on making it through!! You deserve it!! :)


Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 20, 2010 at 2:26 pm

I love “anytime” cookies!! If they taste like an indulgence without actually being one, that’s good with me! :)

Congratulations on moving on in the challenge!!!


Kelly November 20, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Contratulations on Reader’s Choice. I can’t wait to try these cookies. I love everything you make.


Roz November 20, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Congrats! You absolutely deserve that award, the entry was great!!!!


Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) November 20, 2010 at 3:29 pm

These look awesome!

I have made Ani Phyo’s raw oatmeal raisin cookies before and these remind me of them. Just something about the cute little shapes w/ the raisins.

I love that they can be easily made GF and are already vegan…that’s so awesome!

If you can’t get coconut oil, grapeseed oil is nice to bake with. The flavor is less pronounced than olive but there’s just something about coconut oil that’s so nice :) Plus it solidifies when it cools again the way other oils just kinda stay runny.

Congrats on moving forward in the challenge!!



Bec November 20, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Congratulations on readers choice! I am so happy for you and so excited to see your next installment in the challenge.

Felicia (a taste of health with balance) November 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm

These look perfect. I’ve already added them to my recipe book, along with the scuffins. Today I made your pumpkin brownie recipe (omygoodness) and the gingerbread with spiced buttercream (freezing it for thanksgiving, planning ahead! just have to frost it on thursday) and I can’t tell you how delicious the brownies are. Actually, you already know ;) but seriously, SO GOOD!! thank you so much for sharing, and I can’t wait to try the gingerbread!


Felicia (a taste of health with balance) November 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Also: congrats on getting through! Cant wait to see what you’ll be posting about next !


Emily November 20, 2010 at 8:23 pm

Awesome workout and recipe Ange! I am definitely getting back into my treadmill/interval workouts…they are a great way to keep you motivated and keep the treaadmill somewhat enjoyable. Just invested in Under Armour cold-gear running tights, too…I will get outdoors!!


Anna November 20, 2010 at 10:55 pm

Hi Angela! I just had to comment to tell you I made your peppermint walnut crunch blondies today. They were absolutely DIVINE (and easy to make too!) and everyone raved about them. Thank you so much for such a wonderful recipe and I can’t wait to try out some others!


Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] November 21, 2010 at 1:08 am

You’re an expert in ‘mise en place’ ;)

Morgan @ Life After Bagels November 21, 2010 at 8:40 am

Do you think that those bites would work without the raisins, I’m not really a raisin kinda girl


Lily's Health Pad November 21, 2010 at 9:10 am

You just have these amazing food epiphanies! Congrats on the project food blog win. You definitely deserved it.


Brittany November 21, 2010 at 9:54 am

Jacqueline November 21, 2010 at 10:05 am

Hi Angela,

Do you refrigerate your blackstrap?? Thanks!


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 21, 2010 at 12:09 pm

yes I do :)


Amy @ purewellnessamy November 21, 2010 at 10:27 am

Congratulations! I agree that soaking the raisins is key. I usually make a carrot cake for my son’s September birthday and I always soak the raisins. These cookies look great! I can’t wait to try them!! Good luck with Challenge #8!


laura November 21, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Mmm, I will definatley be baking these soon!

Yummy!!! These look fabulous!

Congrats on making it to the next challenge :)

Where West are you headed??



Sarah November 21, 2010 at 5:47 pm

Yum! I am a big fan of carrot cake. I’m thinking those little babies and some sweetened cream cheese-style dip, and I’m set!


Carter November 21, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Ok. These little cookies are OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. I made them this afternoon with ingredients I had on hand cause I was too impatient to run to the store! I used oat flour, zucchini, dried blueberries, and almonds instead…so I guess they were itty bitty zucchini bread cookies?!! Unreal. You are a genius!
Now let’s see if they actually make it to Thansgiving dinner…doubtful.


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 21, 2010 at 9:47 pm

wow great modifications!!!


anonymous November 21, 2010 at 8:35 pm

looks delish! carrot cake rocks my socks :) did you take a photography class? your pics are beautiful!


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 21, 2010 at 9:47 pm

No but I would love to take a class or two! Just taught myself with my SLR. Lightroom is also amazing b/c I shoot in RAW now.


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat November 21, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Aww these are so cute! You know I love carrots ;) Congrats againg on PFB.. can’t wait to see what you’ve got up next!


Amy at TheSceneFromMe November 21, 2010 at 11:05 pm

I do love carrot cake. It is what my mom always makes me for my birthday. I just printed out your recipe (love the new print button) and plan to make them soon. They look like lil bite size balls of bliss! Thanks for creating!


Leanne @healthfulpursuit November 21, 2010 at 11:17 pm

I made these today but since I’m celiac I replaced wheat flour with coconut & almond flour, oats for a mixture of quinoa & rice flakes and they were fantastic! Thanks so much for another great recipe!


Diana @ frontyardfoodie November 21, 2010 at 11:38 pm

Your win doesn’t surprise me a bit:)

I’m totally making these for a Thanksgiving dessert! They look amazing and I’m a HUGE carrot cake fan.


maya @ finding balance in tokyo November 22, 2010 at 1:51 am

Congrats on making it through another round!

Those cookies look amazing. I’m a big carrot cake fan and have been craving it badly since the amazing carrot cake doughnut I had from Doughnut Plant last week!


Cara Craves... November 22, 2010 at 6:35 am

Those do look like little carrot cakes, I love them.
Now I just need to eat one.


Denise November 22, 2010 at 9:01 am

I love coming to your site daily, and am amazed at your postings. I have not tried every recipe but the ones I have, they are awesome! I am happy to see you added a print recipe to your site! Congrats on making it to the next round :D!!!!!


manou November 22, 2010 at 10:07 am

hi angela,

thanx for your great cookie recipes and really nice blog.

I have queastion – do you have an idea what I can use instead of maple syrup in your cookie recipes. because I’m living in Germany in maple syrup is very expensive here.

Have a great week & I hope you will make it to the next round in the project food blog again – good luck !!


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 22, 2010 at 10:27 am

You might be able to use honey or agave nectar :)


Amy November 22, 2010 at 10:32 am

Made these yesterday – WOW! They are so good! Also made your Ultimate oatmeal raisin cookies for hubbys b-day, he loved them! Thanks for the recipes!


KatieM~Run For The Bikini! November 22, 2010 at 11:22 am

I love interval workouts, especially using the incline! and planks!!


Kayley November 22, 2010 at 4:54 pm

I tried your interval workout today and loved it! I felt like I had accomplished so much more than if I had run 4 straight miles at one pace/incline. My pride has a hard time stopping between miles but I know that enabled me to go farther and not get quite so bored…not to mention I got a decent core workout. Thanks Angela!


Heidi - Apples Under My Bed November 22, 2010 at 6:51 pm

That is one tough workout :)
I made oaty carrot bars inspired by this recipe!

Yours looks great, must try them soon :)
Heidi xo


May Cookie Co. November 23, 2010 at 12:44 am

YUM, talk about a guilt-free snack. Perfect for that 4 o’clock energy slump. I’ll be making these soon — I’m excited to have something new and healthy to help curb that feeling. Thanks for sharing!


Tamara December 14, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Hi, wondering if you can freeze these well or not? I’d like to make a big batch, but also don’t want them all eaten in the next few days… thought?


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 14, 2010 at 2:17 pm

yes they freeze very well! I wrapped mine in plastic wrap and then put them in tupperware. they are so yummy!


Leanne December 14, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Posted the gluten free variation for this recipe on my blog

Thanks for all the inspiration lately Angela. Your recipes are just fantastic!


Shannon @ Urban Moda Photography June 8, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Well now you’ve done it…I have everything on hand to make these and it’s raining outside, so what choice do I have?



Brandy Wilson August 3, 2012 at 4:37 pm

You think I could freeze these? An if so how long would they last in the freezer?


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

can’t see why not! I think if wrapped well they would be fine for a couple weeks probably?


Karine September 25, 2012 at 9:19 am

Mmmmm I just made thoses :o) My kitchen smells delicious and those little balls are too!!!!!! Thx for the recipe, I’m sure my son and husband will also enjoy them!


Marie November 13, 2012 at 6:41 pm

hi Angela! I’m looking back through your old recipes- looking for a carrot cake square recipe…do you think this would work for squares? any suggestions!? :)


nunyabizness May 4, 2013 at 7:43 pm

these taste weird without frosting they taste too bland


Karen October 29, 2013 at 9:50 am

I made these with almond flour but the cookies did not hold together. The taste is amazing but I have cookie blobs!


Shauna November 12, 2013 at 4:15 pm

Do you think I can substitute Agave for the maple syrup in the itty bitty carrot cake cookies? Thanks!


Angela (Oh She Glows) November 12, 2013 at 6:42 pm

It should be fine :)


Danna September 24, 2014 at 7:12 am

Hi, just made these, they are very delicious and I love your website generally. Just one question… I used buckwheat flour in place of the pastry flour and they were very very crumbly. Is it because of the flour? Should I use less or not use it at all? Is there something I can add to make them stick together?
Thank you!


Reena October 18, 2014 at 8:19 am

How long can I keep them for and do I just store them in an airtight container at room temperature? Planning to make some cookie giveaways for the festivities and wanted to add these to my cookie bags. Hope to hear back from you soon.



Angela (Oh She Glows) October 21, 2014 at 12:55 pm

Hi Reena, Its been so long since Ive made this so I can’t quite recall, but I would say they wouldnt stay super fresh longer than a few days (like most cookies). You might be able to try freezing them though!


Callie November 11, 2014 at 9:59 am

Hey, I was wondering, can you replace the oats with something like flaxseed or nuts or something? Because they’re not available where I live, but I really want to try this.


Genevieve December 10, 2015 at 9:45 pm

Hi! Can you substitute the coconut oil by another oil? thank you :)


Kristina January 20, 2016 at 11:10 pm

Love love love this recipe! Thank you! I made it gluten free by using coconut flour instead and no oats (sensitive to those too ): ) I added some almonds as well and had to add eggs to make them bind.
I also use less maple syrup, people rarely notice :)


Dena January 26, 2017 at 5:22 pm

I made these today for a potluck and OH MY GOD. So very very good. And I haven’t had a lot of success with Vegan baking, so I’m thrilled. Thanks so much.


Angela Liddon January 30, 2017 at 12:37 pm

Have u tried these with beets? I think we should. It would look magical for kids and beets are so sweet when baked.

Hi, If I don’t have whole wheat pastry flour and want to make these with what I have, what do you think would be safest: AP, rye, corn, cake flour or some combo? Thanks so much, I love your GF vegan choc chip cookies. Michele
