These apple sauce carrot cookies are gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and made with no added sugar! They’re made with sweet potato puree, carrots, oats, and other wholesome ingredients.


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter (sub any other nut or seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup canned sweet potato puree (sub pumpkin puree)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with lightly greased parchment paper.
  2. Pat the shredded carrots dry to remove any excess liquid.
  3. Combine the oats, oat flour, hemp hearts, cinnamon, and flax meal in a bowl. Stir in the cashew butter, sweet potato puree, apple sauce, and shredded carrots. Stir until the dough is fully incorporated. It should be sticky but firm.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (or your hands) to scoop evenly sized cookies and add to the baking sheet, and space about 2″ apart. Slightly flatten with the back of your hand.
  5. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 12 minutes or until firm.
  6. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool before serving.
