    Thanks for this recipe! Like others, I did not add the frosting, but I was really happy with how these cookies baked up. I made a number of changes: I used 1 cup besan flour, 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder in place of the flour, I used applesauce instead of butter, I used milled flaxseed in place of the eggs. Turned out great - about 100 calories per cookie with 4.5 grams of protein and a little bit of fiber. Thanks again.

    Great cookie, healthy and yummy. Used half applesauce too, and currants instead of raisins.

    I will definitely make these again to use up my carrots. Like the previous reviewer, I left off the frosting and just ate them as cookies. Next time I will add nuts and try replacing some of the butter with apple sauce to reduce fat.
