These are super clean, make with wholesome ingredients, and not too sweet. The icing is made with three ingredients, so as long as you have a blender or food processor you can make this yummy icing from scratch!

Cooking Time





  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup coconut shreds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg and salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 flax seed egg
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

  3. Lastly, add the shredded carrots and mix again.
  4. Form cookies by rolling into balls and pressing them down on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. These will not expand like typical cookies, so round balls wont work here.

  6. While the cookies are baking, make the icing by throwing all the icing ingredients in a blender. Blend till smooth.
  7. When the cookies are completely cool, you can ice the cookies.
  8. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
