Print Recipe
Serves: 12 Cooking Time: 1 hour needs chilling


  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup quick oats (not instant)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut oil (or 2 sticks butter, softened)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups grated carrot (3-4 carrots)
  • ½ cup flaked coconut
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • Icing
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk maybe more
  • Dash of vanilla



Preheat oven to 350º F. In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon and oats. Mix well and set aside.


With a mixer, beat together sugars and coconut oil in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.


Add carrots, coconut and walnuts; blend until combined. Batter will be a lumpy.


Add flour mixture and blend at a low speed until just combined. Do not overmix.


If possible chill in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours. I always chill my cookie dough and always undercook my cookies!


Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 13-15 minutes. Watch them so they don't brown too much! Immediately transfer cookies to a cooling rack.


If you want your cookies a little sweeter, blend a small amount of powdered sugar with a small amount of milk in a bowl. Add milk or powdered sugar until to the perfect consistency you like. Drizzle it over the cookies and serve. Enjoy!


Just for you Patty and Penny! 💗
