Hi, I’m Amy! Here in my kitchen, I share recipes that are light in calories but full of flavor. They’re delicious AND nutritious—because you shouldn’t have to choose! Most of my recipes are low-fat (or “skinny”) and clean-eating friendly, with a growing number of vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free options as well. I truly believe we can make healthier options taste just as delicious as their indulgent counterparts—just wait until you try this one!

In today’s video, I’m showing you how to make my Healthy Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies! They’re really soft and chewy, with the same sweet and cozy flavors as traditional carrot cake, but these healthy cookies are easier to make… And they’re only 96 calories!

Just how easy is this healthy oatmeal cookie recipe? Well for starters, you don’t need a stand mixer or electric mixer! You just need a whisk and a fork. And you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already!

While we bake these healthy cookies, you’ll learn how to make sure your oatmeal cookies turn out chewy (not cakey!) and why fresh carrots are the key to making great cookies. You’ll also learn how to make sure your cookies spread while baking, as well as how to make perfectly round cookies. (Hint: No special equipment needed!)

I shared these cookies with my neighbors, and their two-year-old immediately grabbed one and gave me a huge hug! So… These healthy cookies are definitely kid-friendly! And they’re treats you can feel good about indulging in because they contain no refined flour or sugar!

Although I use whole wheat flour, it’s easy to make these healthy oatmeal cookies gluten-free with a good gluten-free flour blend. (I share more on that in the Notes section underneath the Instructions in the recipe on my website!)

You can also find the Weight Watchers points for this healthy oatmeal cookie recipe on my website, directly beneath the printable recipe, along with the full Nutrition Information and macros!
