Finally weekend! Weekends to me mean hours spent baking, photographing and writing. And while I love all those things, it does tend to sometimes feel a bit more like a job than anything else. So I've been trying to not allow these things to consume my weekends anymore and to try and find some other interests and activities to do over the weekends. I've recently become addicted to DIY (mostly because I discovered how awesome chalk paint is), I just want to DIY everything in my house... and I mean EVERYTHING. I walk around the house just looking for things I can refurbish or paint. I might have a bit of a problem... Who knew it could be so fun simply painting cupboards or making pillow cases?
Anyway.... Before I get carried away. As usual, I am always on a big expedition to find and create healthy cookie recipes. Because nobody wants to live in a world where there are no cookies, even if you are trying your best to eat healthily. So after making those Peanut Butter Oat Cookies, I decided I would give oats in cookies another whirl, because I love the chewiness they give.
These Healthy Cinnamon Carrot Cookies are the epitome of a healthy cookies. They taste delicious, are moist and are healthy enough to eat for breakfast or even lunch. There is nothing better than an oatmeal cookie if you ask me. I love how the addition of rolled oats really creates chewy carrot cookies.
I love having a bunch of these in the house for when a mid-afternoon cookie craving hits (which is pretty much everyday). They seem to just do the trick, they are really moist and chewy and also pretty filling, so one of these are good enough to hit the spot. It's like having a slice of carrot cake. 🙂
These yummy Healthy Cinnamon Carrot Cookies are gluten free, refined sugar free and are easily made vegan style. 🙂
