It's pretty hard to find after-school snacks that not only taste good but are nutritious, too. Well, our Carrot Cake Cookies are a way to sneak healthy veggies into snack time.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18-ounce) package carrot cake mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 carrots, finely shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pineapple, raisins, carrots, eggs, and oil; beat 3 to 4 minutes, or until well blended. Stir in walnuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls 1 inch apart onto baking sheets.
  3. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until edges are golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm, or allow to cool completely before serving.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.


Some people think the best part of carrot cake is the cream cheese frosting, so you may want to frost these with prepared or homemade cream cheese frosting.

This is a great recipe. I sandwich two together with cream cheese frosting for Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies.

I made these for our small town bingo group. They were a big hit. I could only find a 15.25 oz. box of Carrot cake mix. It worked o.k. I used walnuts instead of pecans I also made my frosting using 1/2 cube butter, 8 oz. cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, & vanilla. They were sooooo good!!!

These cookies are fantastic! I have made them several times in the past couple of years.. I add 1/2 c shredded coconut and some golden raisins. Spice cake mix works well also if you don't have carrot cake. - just add more carrots. I agree, actual measuremnts shoudl be part of any recipe - not just 2 shredded carrots . Sizes vary. Using a food processor to shred them is the way to go.

I use the baby carrots instead, I like the taste better

Try Jr. baby food carrots instead of grating them.

instead of shredding them you might be able to peel them, cut off the fat end and put them in a small food processor!

C"mon people!!! Just shred 2 regular size carrots---it's that easy.

i was wondering the same thing. is it big carrots, medium carrots or what?LOL and what exactly does 'finely shredded' mean? goodness, a little more detail would be great here.

Graters, and processors, have different sized blades. Use a smaller hole to make a "finer" shred so the carrot cooks while the cookie does. I have been cooking for 60 years and taught my sons to cook from the time they were little. Not everyone had that experience. Making impatient, or even rude remarks, to people who have questions doesn't help them or you.

What does "2 shredded carrots" mean? Has anyone made these cookies & come up with an amount that works? I'm guessing 1/2 cup....
