The bulk buy that keeps on giving (Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies)

I bulk bought oatmeal a ways back and cannot seem to go through it all.  My Covey Rise share one week had nothing that was fit for breakfast even for my creative mind, so I decided to use up some of the oats.  I still wanted to be healthy, so I decided to make some carrot cake cookies that popped up on Pinterest.

I doctored these up quite a bit.  I was out of maple syrup and am not gluten free or dairy free so I made it a little less healthy but they are still healthy all the same. And so good and comforting warm out of the oven with a little butter.  I made squash butter with my acorn squash and spread that on it and it was to die for!

Make these treats for you and yours!  There are other versions on the original pin that I cannot wait to go back and try!  Linking up with all the usual suspects below.  Full recipe to follow the montage.
