I almost made a true Paleo carrot cookie recipe, almost, but not quite. You should be proud if you are a part timer like me! I’m all about baby steps because this whole Paleo Diet thing is incredibly overwhelming to think about doing all at once. You want me to throw away EVERYTHING and buy EVERYTHING organic- AKA double the price of conventional food? You can blow that one out your tush because that is a recipe for disaster.
Almost Paleo Carrot Cookie Recipe
Here’s the deal. Paleo or not, these carrot cookies are pretty freaking tasty. When I say tasty I mean they were approved by five different cookie lovers ranging from 20 months to 50+ years old. My prediction is you will be gobbling these cookies up like they were chock-full of flour, sugar, and butter. Bazinga! These cookies don’t have any of those ingredients in them. 🙂
Random cookie notes:
- Using the carrot pulp from this juice recipe makes me feel all crunchy inside. I never thought I would see the day where I cared this much about wasting food and eating healthy. Maybe I can be an adult?
- Don’t put the cookies on the bottom rack of the oven or they will burn.
- I need to live by a Trader Joe’s so I can spend money more than once a month. Wahh! Maybe that’s why Michael moved us away from Oakland County? I just want to be left alone to shop for my new food hobby! The food hobby I’m sure none of you care about because it’s A- not entertaining and B- not entertaining. I fail.
Ola! Granola is fantastic! It’s weird how quickly you start to pay attention to what is in your food and notice words like pure maple syrup, non-GMO, pure vanilla, etc. Even though grains aren’t Paleo friendly, I’m OK with my choice to include some crunch into my almost Paleo carrot cookie recipe. I loved my cookie creation and wouldn’t trade it for the world!
I was sent Ola! Granola to aid in my recipe creation and review. The recipe, pictures and opinions are 100% my own.
