Carrot-Date Cookies

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 1h

2 1/2 dozen cookies

These cookies are made sweet and flavorful by the addition of a generous amount of chopped dates.


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pitted dates
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1/4 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.

Stir together the dates, carrots, yogurt, sugar, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Stir together the flour, Grape-Nuts, baking soda and salt in another medium bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the date mixture with a wooden spoon, mixing just until blended. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake until the tops spring back when touched lightly, about 15 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
