Ingredients

For Carrot Cake Cookie

For Maple Glaze

Directions

  • For Cookie:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer cream butter and maple sugar until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add in egg and vanilla extract. Mix on medium until completely blended.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add flour mixture to creamed butter and mix until incorporated.
  • Add in carrots, walnuts and raisins and mix until incorporated.
  • Roll a tablespoon of dough into a ball and place on baking sheet. Lightly flatten down with the palm of your hand to form the cookie, as these will not spread much while baking.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, or until cookie has completely set and bottom is lightly browned.
  • For Glaze:
  • Whisk all ingredients together. If glaze is too thin you can add a teaspoon of powdered sugar at a time until it has reached the desired consistency.

    • 1 tbsp arrowroot flour
    • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup

    1. Mix all ingredients together in a stand mixer or hand mixer until creamy. Taste and adjust sweetness as desired.
