Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Cookies

 Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Cookies are so soft and sweet, just like carrot cake! We added white chocolate chips to these cookies and man, are they good!


A Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe With Carrot Cake Flavors

These Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Cookies are my way of combining two of my favorite dessert recipes in one bite. The only thing missing from these chocolate chip cookies is the frosting…but I’m telling you, you’re not going to miss it.

These cookies are light, soft and totally cake like. There’s no chewy or crispy (maybe just a little around the edges) but just like a small piece of cake. They’re kind of perfect.

The other thing I love about this recipe is that there’s no sifting, no waiting for butter to soften or come to room temperature, no millions of steps, and no difficult ingredients. These are cookies for the people who don’t really love to bake, just dump everything in a bowl, mix and chill.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Cookies

They need to sit in the fridge for an hour or two – even over night if you have the time to wait.

All there is to this is to combine the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl. Mix the together and you’re good to go.

After they chill, scoop them out onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake for about 18-20 minutes. 18 minutes worked perfectly for us, they were still a little soft on the inside when we took them out of the oven to cool – and after of cooling for 10 minutes they were perfect.


Our boys don’t even really like carrot cake but they loved these cookies. Our little guy asked if he could count that as his vegetable for dinner because there’s actual carrots in the cookies…

He’s creative, we might give him that one.

But these Chocolate Chip Carrot Cake Cookies are really delicious as a snack, for dessert or even a quick treat for breakfast! I mean, they can’t be much worse for you than eating a giant muffin or a stack of pancakes, am I right?
