Inside-Out Carrot Cake Cookies

Turn carrot cake into cookies!  Gluten-free flours like almond, oat, and coconut create a tender gluten-free cookie crumb and sweetened with maple, applesauce, and carrot.  Switch the frosting from the outside to an inner filling and you’ve got a fun twist on a cake turned cookie.  Recipe courtesy of Emilie Hebert from Emilie Eats.

Ingredients
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, add almond meal, oat flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk well to combine, making sure there are no lumps.
  3. In a medium bowl, add maple syrup, almond butter, oil, applesauce, milk and vanilla. Whisk until fully combined.
  4. Slowly pour wet ingredient into the dry ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are mixed together. Fold in carrots, raisins and pecans.
  5. Scoop the dough in 1-tablespoon scoops onto a baking sheet. Slightly flatten the cookies (not much).
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until the tops are slightly crispy. Remove and let them cool on the pan for 10 minutes.
  7. While the cookies are baking, scoop out the solid white coconut milk from the top of the can. Reserve the clear liquid for smoothies, if desired. In a medium bowl, place solid coconut milk and powdered sugar. Beat with an electric beater until there are no lumps. Scoop the icing into a Ziploc bag and place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
  8. To assemble the cookies, cut off one tip of the Ziploc bag. Pipe the icing onto the bottom of one cookie, then place another cookie on top. Repeat with all of the cookies.
Recipe Notes

*If you don't have a grater, use a vegetable peeler to make thin ribbons, then finely chop.
