Just in time for Fall, these chewy carrot cake cookies are the perfect treat for a crisp day, a party, with a hot cup of tea or any occasion!
I made a roast not too long ago and I over estimated how many carrots would fit into the crockpot… so I had a few leftover. I could eat them or I could figure out how to bake when them.
Baking with them sounded more fun.
Last year I made carrot cupcakes so I knew this year I wanted to try something different. Cookies! Yes! Carrot cake cookies. BUT… these cookies had to be chewy. They couldn’t be puffy or cake like. I wanted them to have substance and chew with tons of amazing carrot and spice flavor!
So these cookies are made with browned butter, lots of shredded carrots, spices and amped up with white chocolate chips and shredded coconut. They are crisp on the edges and chewy in the center. The white chocolate chips add just a hint of sweetness! If you wanted to add chopped nuts to these cookies… I bet that’d be awesome too. (Although I didn’t add any because I’m allergic to nuts.)
If you love carrot cake…. you’ll love these chewy carrot cake cookies!
So good. I mean it. SO GOOD.
