These vegan carrot cake cookies are so chewy, soft, and lightly sweet. They’re a great way to get in some veggies while making it taste good! These cookies are also full of good-for-you ingredients like whole wheat flour, oats, flax seeds, and walnuts.

Ingredients needed to make your vegan healthy carrot cake cookies

  • Carrots. The star of this recipe!
  • Flax Seeds. As the vegan egg replacer.
  • Vanilla. For a touch of sweetness.
  • Coconut Oil. A healthier oil option to make your cookies fluffy.
  • Maple Syrup. For a healthier sweetener.
  • Almond Milk. For a splash of almond flavour.
  • Spices. A mix of spices like cinnamon, all spice, and cloves will give these cookies a bold flavour.
  • Whole Wheat Flour. To help bind the oats together with the other ingredients.
  • Oats. To bind well with the whole wheat flour, and absorb other wet ingredients.
  • Raisins. Because it wouldn’t be carrot cake without raisins, right?
  • Chocolate Chips. For a touch of added sweetness.
  • Walnuts. To add a nice crunch!
  • Pineapple Juice. This adds so much flavour! It’s optional, but I would highly recommend including it.
