Carrot Cake Cookies

I have this weird thing where I can only eat 5 carrots a day (the baby ones). I know. I can’t figure it out either. Carrots are normally most people’s favorite vegetable, but not me. I can’t do more than 5. Give me any other veggie and I’ll gobble them up, but give me 5+ carrots and I can’t do it.
