Carrot Coconut Drop Cookies
At first thought, you might think it a strange combination to add carrots in cookies. But there are already delectable goods like carrot muffins, and even carrot cake. So why not a carrot type cookie?
However, it is the taste that will surprise you. These cookies are moist and cake like, but not with the traditional spices you would expect in carrot cake. In fact, there are not any added spices or flavoring at all. Not even Vanilla Extract.
The addition of the unsweetened coconut is the added chewy taste bonus to this mild cake like cookie.
Children Love These
If you have children who don’t seem to have a fondness for vegetables, this might help get some beta-carotene into their diets. I’m not convinced that broccoli cookies would go over very well, but Carrot Coconut Drop Cookies certainly will. My children always enjoyed these.
These cookies are great for snacks and school lunches.
Carrot Coconut Drop Cookies are easy to make and economical. And by just cooking a little extra carrots when making some for dinner, or using up some leftovers in the fridge, you reduce waste too.
These cookies are a nice bulk batching cookie to make. By making 60 cookies in a batch, you can quickly whip up these cookies for bake sales, and more.
These cookies also freeze very well when stored in air tight containers. You only need to separate the layers of cookies with a sheet of parchment paper. So, go ahead and make them up for any special events and holidays.
And like we discovered in the article How To Pick The Perfect Recipes, this Carrot Coconut Drop Cookies would certainly be one of those.
So, remember, the next time you are cooking up some carrots, tuck a few aside and make some of these. Your entire family will be surprised to find out that the goodness contained within is carrots and more.
