Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies Recipe – Irresistible, soft and chewy oatmeal cookies bursting with carrot cake flavor, are super easy to make and taste amazing!

Carrot Cake, Oatmeal Cookies,

Moist and sweet, these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect little dessert for Spring, or even Easter brunch!

Besides, these little treats are much simpler than making a whole carrot cake. Though, I truly truly truly DO NOT mind a whole slice of my ➡ carrot cake ⬅… yummmm!

Truth be told, come Easter, I always reach for a slice of carrot cake slathered with cream cheese frosting…  You, too, right? I mean, we’re just humans, for Pete’s sake, we gotta have cake!

Obviously, this ain’t no cake, but in this recipe we are going to introduce carrot cake to oatmeal cookies. Kind of healthy, verrrry easy, and really really delicious! YAY!

Reminiscent of my Apple Oatmeal Cookies, these cookies are full of hearty oats, cozy spices, and lots of flavor.

HOW DO YOU MAKE CARROT CAKE OATMEAL COOKIES

My FAVORITE part of this recipe is that you only need one mixing bowl and a cookie sheet or sheet pan.

  1. You first want to combine butter and brown sugar in your mixer’s bowl and cream the mixture; add the eggs and beat until combined.
  2. Then, using a wooden spoon, you will add in the rest of the ingredients; shredded carrots, oats, flour, spices, and walnuts.
  3. To bake the cookies, preheat oven to 375F.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough about 2-inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for about 10 to 11 minutes, or until cookies are set.
  5. Once the cookies have cooled down, combine powdered sugar and pineapple juice in a small mixing bowl and whisk together until combined.
  6. Drizzle glaze over the cookies; let set, then serve.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve made a ton of versions of these cookies for us because they come together really fast and are great for mornings, especially when we are on the go.

…and that’s like, every day, to be honest. I always manage to snooze the alarm clock 5 times.

The outside of the cookie is slightly crunchy, which I LOVE, and the inside is moist, soft, and chewy. Also, the pineapple-flavored glaze is just PERFECT!
