If you ever get a craving for sweet carrot cookies or cake before your morning cup for jo, rest assured you are not alone! We’re here to share the healthiest and easiest alternative for all your carrot loving cravings that you can eat anytime.
When I first made these cookies, it may have been on such a morning where I was craving sweets but didn’t want to be too naughty in breaking any sugar rules before noon. So when I offered my husband a carrot cookie that morning, he asked me if they were really healthy enough for breakfast. I was very happy to give him a resounding “yes”!
Everyone likes the idea of eating cookies around the clock, don’t they? These are ones everyone can feel good about eating anytime! They are filled with nutritious ingredients that won’t weigh you down. These carrot cookies are no-bake, (not even requiring cooking on the stove-top or any of that crazy business!) which means you get the full raw benefits of carrots, nuts and coconut in this sweet healthy treat! I would say, eating cookies anytime is a sure sign of living life right.
