Easy Carrot Cake Mix Cookies

Today we are using an accidentally vegan cake mix to make these delicious carrot cake cookies. They come together in less than 20 minutes, with only a handful of ingredients. If you don't like baking or just aren't very great at it, like myself, these cookies will be your new favorite recipe!


1 15.25oz box of carrot cake mix, most are vegan friendly (we used Betty Crocker)

1/2 cup of vegetable oil

1/2 cup of apple sauce 

Vegan friendly cream cheese frosting (Duncan Hines cream cheese frosting is also accidentally vegan)

1/2-3/4 cup diced walnuts (Or you can use any type of nuts you prefer or omit them)


Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl add your first 3 ingredients 

Mix until well blended

Scoop about 2 tbsps of mix and roll into a ball

Place onto parchment lined baking sheet

Repeat with remaining dough

Leave enough space between each ball so they don’t touch 

Place into oven and bake for 9-11 minutes

Don’t overcook, they will harden up as they cool

Let cool

Spread tops of cookies with icing

Sprinkle with walnuts or nuts of choice

Serve and enjoy!

Can be stored in air tight container for 5 days
