  • For the cookies:
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup old fashion oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
  • For the cream cheese frosting:
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Step 1

In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, sugars and vanilla until smooth. Gently stir in the carrots and applesauce.

Step 2

Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon into the wet ingredients. Stir gently with a spatula until combined.

Step 3

Fold in the oats and raisins, if desired.

Step 4

Form dough into uniform balls (I used about 1 1/2 Tbsp of dough for each cookie) and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes. Then carefully remove parchment and cookies from pan and let cool on counter for 15 minutes.

Step 6

While cookies are baking and cooling, prepare the frosting. Use a hand mixer to beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until creamy. Add in powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time and beat until desired consistency.

Step 7

Spread cream cheese frosting between two cooled cookies. Repeat with the rest. Eat and enjoy! Store extra cookies in an airtight container.
