Orange Carrot Coconut Cookies







     I got this inspiration from the talented Andrea at Protein Cakery, www.proteincakery.com !  If you haven't come across her before, do yourself a favor and check her out !!!  When I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it!!!  What great flavor combinations, who woulda thunk it, ...Andrea, that's who!!!  Each cookie has 56 calories, 2.2g carbs and 4.2g protein. When you are ready for some fun in the kitchen, give this recipe a try !!!  ;)

Ingredients for Cookies~
1 cup cooked carrots ( 2 cups raw, 256g)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 cup V Core Orange Dreamsickle Protein Powder
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
Dash of Salt
2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded Coconut

Ingredients for Icing~
1/4 cup V Core Orange Dreamsickle Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons fresh Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
1 packet Truvia/Stevia
Lemon Juice to taste

     Blend cooled cooked Carrots and melted Oil in Magic Bullet til smooth, stir in remaining cookie ingredients.  Drop by spoonful onto parchment lined cookie sheet, I was able to get 19 cookies out of this batch.  Bake at 325 for 18 minutes or until firm, remove and cool.  Meanwhile, stir together Icing ingredients, and chill in fridge while cookies are cooking and cooling.  When cooled, frost cookies and store in fridge.  Enjoy  ;)
