Spent Carrot Cookies
Are you a crispy or soft cookie lover? From the day I knew there was a choice I preferred soft, chewy cookies! There is nothing better than a warm cookie baked to perfection. When I came up with these carrot cake cookies, I don’t think the first batch even hit the cookie jar. They got eaten straight off the cookie sheet.
Know what else makes me happy about these? They use up something I hate to throw away! Carrot pulp! There are two by-products to our pretty much make everything from scratch diet (by necessity not design) that I really don’t like wasting: carrot pulp and almond meal. The almond meal is left over from making fresh almond milk, and I’m still looking to make the perfect cracker out of that!
I am digressing though… So it delights me to no end that my family gobbles these cookies up fast enough that I never waste carrot pulp from our daily juice! If you don’t have carrot pulp by the pound, don’t fret, because carrots minced using the s-blade of your food processor work just as well!
These are hearty on the go snacks and yummy lunchbox treats. With plenty of fiber and protein they make a great option late night sweet without the blood sugar spike issue before bed.
Happy cookie eating!
