Carrot Oatmeal Breakfast “Cookies”


I’m always looking for ways to pack a bunch of nutrition into my preschoolers tiny breakfast/lunch box all while keeping the mess to a minimum. It’s not easy packing whole food plant-based meals sometimes so anything in a muffin, bar or cookie form is perfect. I very rarely use flour or other processed foods so that poses a bit of a challenge when cooking such things. These breakfast “cookies” are made with leftover No-Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal and they are very good! I’m sure you could use regular leftover oatmeal but I don’t think they’d be as good as these.

Carrot Oatmeal Breakfast “Cookies”

Recipe from Melomeals!!! What would I do without her!?!?! She has mad skills when it comes to leftovers!!

Leftover Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

½ batch ( around 1.5 cups ) No-Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1 c dry rolled oats
2 carrots, pulsed really well in the food processor
½ c raisins or dried fruit
1/8 t Kal Stevia (optional)
¼ t baking powder
Around ¼ c liquid ( non dairy milk )

Mix well. Taste batter and add more spices if desired as well. Add to parchment paper.

Bake for 20 minutes  at 375 – I used an ice cream scoop to make bigger cookies and I found that 20 minutes was the right amount of baking time. The original recipe calls for 11 minutes so try that first if you’re making regular sized cookies.

Add leftover oatmeal with carrots, raisins, oats, stevia (if using) and non-dairy milk and mix well

Spoon onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper – I used a larger ice cream scoop and flattened the cookies before baking

Flattened and shaped’ish

Allow them to cool completely. Ready to pack in our preschooler’s breakfast box!!!
