 Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies 

These cookies are so moist and delicious. Sure to become a family favorite for breakfast or anytime. Enjoy these carrot cake breakfast cookies!

 

Carrot cake happens to be my husbands favorite cake of all time. He’s a big fan of carrots in general.

When he recently asked me if I would bake a carrot cake for him it gave me the idea to make something different such as a carrot cake cookie.

I wanted to whip up something that was not only delicious but also with some good quality ingredients to give the cookie a nutritional boost.

Along came the “Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookie”.

A carrot cake cookie that can be made with wholesome ingredients yet still be moist and delicious and a family favorite.

Of course this was not mentioned to my hubby. Just to try the new carrot cake cookies.

I was hoping he would like them and he loved them!

Then, when he saw the kids were eating them for breakfast he questioned me why I’m giving the kids cookies for breakfast.

The confession came out. Since then, he grabs a few for the office and the kids still eat them for breakfast or a great snack at school.

Give these a try and bet your family and you will really enjoy these carrot cake breakfast cookies anytime of day like we do.
