Have I mentioned that I love carrot cake? It is one of my favorite desserts and is definitely my favorite cake. (Chocolate takes a very close second, in case you’re wondering.) When I had a craving for it this week, I considered making my healthy carrot cake cupcakes , but decided to see if I could create a cookie version of my favorite cake instead.
I wanted the cookie to be even healthier than the cupcakes, so I had the idea to leave out the flour. I’m trying to cut back on wheat flour in particular as I have a tendency to overuse it. So instead of whole wheat flour, I used almond meal for these cookies. I had no idea how they would turn out as I’d never baked with almond meal. One word?
