Cake Bites with Carrots and Chocolate Chips

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

These cake bites look like a cookie, but they have a cake texture. Are slightly sweet, so feel free to increment the sweetener to ⅓ of a cup, a ½ of a cup or just add extra chocolate chips. I have tried this recipe with coconut sugar and maple syrup and both work great. When buying maple syrup I recommend reading the ingredients list, some brands add corn syrup, sugar or weird unnecessary ingredients. When using chocolate chips for my baked goods I usually prefer mini unsweetened chocolate chips, this way I'm sure that I get chocolate in every bite.

Makes: 24 mini cookies Prep time: 15 to 20 minutes Cooking time: 6 to 8 minutes


2 tablespoons avocado oil

1 pouch of apple sauce (1/4 cup)

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup coconut sugar or maple syrup

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon salt

¼ cup shredded carrots and then chopped

¼ cup mini choco chips or raisins. I did half and half


  1. In a bowl mix the dry ingredients

  2. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients

  3. Shred the carrot, and then with a knife chop until you get really small pieces

  4. Incorporate both mixtures into one bowl

  5. Add the carrot

  6. If you are making two different flavors:

    1. Separate the batter into two bowls

    2. Add the choco chips to one of the bowls and the rainins to the other one

  7. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper

  8. With a spoon scoop some of the cookie dough and drop a small to medium dot on the prepared baking sheet

  9. Bake at 350 for about 6 to 8 mins, this is going to depend on the size of the cookie

  10. Let it to cool down

Directions to decorate:

  1. In a glass bowl or a mug melt some chocolate chips. I used the microwave

  2. If you are using eye candies, drop some of the melted chocolate on the cookie and place the eye. Then place the cookies in the refrigerator for a few minutes. This is going to help to set the eye/sprinkles.

  3. Decorate the plate and place the cookies on top
