24 servings

  1. 360 grams (2 & 1/2 cups) plain or gluten-free flour

  2. 90 grams (1 cup) quick oats

  3. 1 1/2 tsp baking soda / bicarb

  4. 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

  5. 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  6. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  7. 1/2 tsp xanthan gum if using gluten-free flour

  8. 1/4 tsp salt

  9. 225 grams (1 cup) butter, softened

  10. 200 grams (1 cup) granulated sugar

  11. 240 grams (1 cup) packed light brown sugar

  12. 2 tsp vanilla extract

  13. 130 grams (2 & 1/2 cup) finely grated carrot, around 2 medium sized carrots

  14. 130 grams (1 cup) chopped pecans (optional)


  1. Whisk together the flour, quick oats, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and xanthan gum if using

  2. In another bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla

  3. Add the flour gradually until it’s all cut in

  4. Mix in the carrots and pecans then cover the bowl and chill the dough in the fridge for at least 60 minutes, 90 is really best to stop them spreading out so much

  5. Preheat oven to gas 4 / 180C / 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper

  6. Spoon a heaped tablespoon of dough per cookie onto the baking sheets, spacing the cookies at least 2 inches apart. You’ll need to do this in batches so leave the unused dough in the fridge until needed

  7. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes then let cool on the tray until you can peel them off the parchment paper

  8. Once cooled, sandwich two cookies together with a buttercream or cream cheese filling. My basic buttercream recipe is 150g butter (I use Vitalite sunflower spread or gold foil Stork brand margarine) to 350g icing / powdered sugar and a dash each of vanilla extract and milk to thin to spreading consistency

  9. Makes 48 cookies or 24 sandwich cookies. Store in an airtight container
