These breakfast cookies have finely shredded carrot or zucchini hidden inside -- but you'll never notice, because we tossed in raisins, pecans, and brown sugar, too.

Purpeleigh... just cut the sugar in half. Most people wouldn't miss it.

Perfectly tasty. Made this and served to my boyfriend's parents to rave reviews. A few things to consider: 1. I used a pan of water in the oven to make soft bake cookies. 2. Steel cut oats than rolled oats give a different texture that we preferred. Definitely make the yogurt glaze for a pop of sweetness!

12 grams of sugar is NOT an acceptable breakfast.
