I baked the cookies 5 times with different ingredients each time. Even my unsuccessful attempts are being enjoyed by my household members so don't be afraid to make any mistakes along the way :) I wanted the taste of the cookies to be associated with celebrating Christmas. Orange peel and spices turned out to be a reliable addition. Cooled cookies can be stored in a tightly closed container for up to 3 days. Mine didn't make it to the second day, so good luck!


for about 12 cookies

  • 150 g of carrots
  • grated zest of 1 orange
  • 125 g of wheat flour
  • 90 g oat flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of linseed + 3 tablespoons of hot water (replaces 1 egg)
  • 100 g maple syrup
  • 20 g liquid coconut oil
  • 40 g finely chopped dried plums
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of cardamom
  • 1 pinch of ginger powder


  1. Set the oven to 175 degrees C.
  2. Pour hot water over linseed (preferably ground) and set aside.
  3. Grate or grind the carrots in a mixer (I used a Thermomix) and put  them into a bowl.
  4. Add orange shredded peel.
  5. Add plums, linseed, maple syrup, coconut oil and mix everything together. 
  6. Pour flour, oatmeal, baking powder, spices into the second bowl and mix everything together.
  7. Pour the mixture of dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly (I used a Thermomix).
  8. Line the baking tray with baking paper.
  9. Form cookies with a diameter of approx. 5 cm and place them on a baking tray.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes.
  11. Store the cookies in a tightly closed container (up to 3 days).
