Carrots are something I rarely eat due to the relatively high sugar content – and only in small quantities when I do – but gosh I love carrot cake! These cookies are a twist on carrot cake, and I’ll definitely be making them regularly. It was also the first time I used brown Swerve in a recipe, and it was a success!
