Adapted from another low fat oatmeal cookie recipe because my kids are allergic to apples and applesauce.

Excellent recipe. Cookies are not too sweet, perfect for breakfast with coffee. The kids loved them too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, followed by the carrots and vanilla. Using your hands, stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined, adding the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until fully combined. This will be really really sticky, don't worry!
  4. Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, flattening each cookie slightly. Bake for about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Let cool on sheet for 3 or 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
