Carrot Cake Cookies
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tablespoons coconut oil or butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
3/4 cup grated carrots
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate bowl (I use a 2c. measure), whisk together coconut oil, egg, vanilla, and maple syrup.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined.
Fold in carrots.
Chill for 30 minutes.
Drop tablespoon sized balls onto a prepared baking sheet (lined with silpat or parchment).
Bake for 13 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before eating.
