Amaranth Carrot Cookies

A healthy cookie that tastes like carrot cake. This recipe can be found on our bags of Amaranth Flour. Gluten Free, High Fiber, Lactose Free, Vegan.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet, set aside.

Step 2

Combine all of the wet ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl sift flours. Combine dry ingredients and sift again. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Add raisins and grated carrots.

Step 3

Use a medium size (1.5 oz) spring action scoop to place batter on greased cookie sheet. Using a scoop will ensure your cookies to bake evenly. Using a fork, spatula or the palm of your hand, flatten the cookies to 1/2-inch thickness.

Step 4

Bake 12-15 minutes, until cookies are lightly brown. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.

Makes 12 cookies.


*Agave syrup was used rather than honey because it\'s not so sweet. If you use honey you may want to use less than the suggested amount.

These cookies are amazing! My husband absolutely loves them. He says they are the best cookies I have made for him and he loves all my baking but says these are exceptional. They are healthy and the flavor of the Amaranth flour really shines in these. You won't be disappointed!

I didn’t use raisins, used applesauce for 1/2 the oil, used 1/2 honey and agave and tapioca starch for arrowroot starch. I personally don’t like the taste of amaranth flour but my 2yo and husband loved them. They didn't keep very well so next time I will try freezing half the batch.

They have a little bid of an "amaranth flour" aftertaste, but overall I like them, but the kids didn't like them as much, but is a good and healthy recipe.. I used honey instead of agave and cut the amount in half and they still came out little too sweet, will use even less next time..

I'm submitting another review, because it turns out 3 out of my 4 kids do like the cookies. They didn't at first and then the cookies just magically disappeared! My husband liked them too, so A+ recipe.
Also, they taste better when cooled, then the amaranth after taste isn't as strong.
