Recipe For Carrot Breakfast Cookies

Reader's Recipe: Carrot Breakfast Cookies

Looking for a yummy Sunday brunch treat? FitSugar reader summer m posted this recipe in the Healthy Recipe Group.

A little less sweet than a regular cookie, I packed mine with carrots, oats and raisins, all the good wholesome stuff breakfasts should be made of. Pair a cookie with some eggs, some yogurt or even a glass of milk and you have a complete meal. I took these to work today and they went pretty fast from the break room, so it just goes to show if healthy food tastes good people eat it.
