I’ve been dreaming of carrot cookies lately and decided to see if I could transform a favorite molasses cookie into a carrot spice cookie. Oh yes! My Bang Bang Carrot Spice Cookies are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and just sweet enough for an afternoon snack. This recipe makes four dozen vegan carrot cookies, loaded with healthy ingredients like carrots, white whole wheat flour, molasses, and aquafaba instead of eggs.
These carrot cookies are fun to make too. You take the cookie sheets out of the oven just before the cookies set and bang them on the counter. Bang bang! This flattens out the cookies a bit and creates cracks so they have a lovely light and dark pattern. You might find baking these cookies to be downright therapeutic, replacing a trip to the therapist or a double-shot of bourbon.
Bang Bang Carrot Cookies are a bargain. They cost just 14 cents a cookie, using organic ingredients, or $6.65 for the batch.
