Cook Time
15 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, gluten free certified if necessary
  • 3/4 cups flour, gluten free or all purpose
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup+1 Tbsp non-dairy milk (I like unsweetened almond)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax mixed with 2 1/2 Tbsp water, let sit for a few minutes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated carrot


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and stir. Next, add all remaining ingredients and mix again until everything is combined.

  3. Use a 1/4 cup scoop to scoop the batter onto the parchment paper. Pat the tops down a little to give cookie shape and bake for 15-17 minutes, until firm and cooked through. Let cool on a wire rack before eating.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use a regular egg in place of the flax egg for a vegetarian option.
