Healthy Carrot Cake Cookies

healthy carrot cake cookies
These healthy carrot cake cookies have all the delicious flavors of classic carrot cake but take a fraction of the time to make! They are naturally sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan optional and are full of healthy ingredients. I love how they are slightly crispy around the edges but are soft and chewy in the center. They can be served as dessert, but are healthy enough to eat for breakfast or a snack! Looking for ore healthy cookie recipes? Check out some of my favorites!
