Vegan Carrot Cake Cookies
Pictures and Recipe by The Baking Stone
Makes 2 dozen.
1 cup white whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup quick cooking oats (rolled works too)
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil, warmed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Start heating the coconut oil over medium low heat on the stove. In a large bowl, sift together the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the oats. Add the grated carrots, chopped walnuts and coconut and stir together.
Once the coconut oil is melted, add the maple syrup and stir to combine. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until combined. Drop teaspoons of dough onto the cookie sheet and use your fingers to flatten the dough, not completely, just until the top is even.
Bake for 10 minutes. I definitely didn’t want to over bake these and 10 minutes was perfect. They are delicious warm or cold. Enjoy!
