Snack attack! Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

My kids LOVE cookies!

What kid doesn’t? Or Mommy after a long day, paired with her favourite wine 😉

I refuse to buy cookies from the store. They are so full of junk, I don’t want my kiddos eating that and besides…I LOVE to bake 😄

So, peruse Pinterest I must and here’s what I found:

Ingredients:
1 cup quick oats 
¾ cup whole wheat flour
1-½ tsp baking powder
1-½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup maple syrup
¾ cup grated carrots (about 1 smallish medium)
Directions:
 
In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the maple syrup until thoroughly incorporated. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Fold in the carrots. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. (If chilling longer, cover with plastic wrap, ensuring it touches the entire surface of the cookie dough.)
 
Preheat the oven to 325°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
 
Drop the cookie dough into 15 rounded scoops on the baking sheet. (If chilled longer than 1.5 hours, flatten slightly.) Bake at 325°F for 12-15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
 
These are super duper yummy and the kiddos love ’em too!
