A few weeks ago another food obsessed co-worker, Gina, sent me a cookie recipe and said it was a must try. We have very similar taste in food and basically anything she recommends I know I will end up loving. She is also very healthy so there is no worrying about my figure widening like some of my other want to try recipes. These cookies have a few different ingredients that I don't regularly have in the pantry, mainly coconut oil. Thus, it took a little effort before I could make them. It was well worth it though. These are great cookies, and a healthy snack.
Carrot Oatmeal Cookies
From 101 Cookbooks
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour ( I used regular whole wheat flour.)
1 teaspoon baking powder
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup real maple syrup, room temperature
1/2 cup unrefined (fragrant) coconut oil, warmed until just melted
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Preheat oven to 375F degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
So did you notice there there is no animal products or sugar in these cookies? I guess that means they are vegan. I didn't realize the sugar part until after I had mixed them all together. These cookies are moist, chewy, and sweet enough for my taste. There mini size means you can have
2 4 at a time.
They are very, very easy to put together. The longest part is shredding the carrots and as you can see I had a little help. I am still waiting for Mr. J to taste them but I am pretty sure they will be a success. They already are in my mind.
