What's Cooking Wednesday

Carrot Cake Cookies

If you like a healthy cookie, than give these a try.  They are moist and delicious.  Perfect for breakfast or as a snack!  I adapted my recipe from Perry's Plate

Ingredients:

1 cup flour (I used white whole wheat)
1 cup oats
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 chopped nuts (optional)
2 tbsp agave syrup/nectar

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2.  In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, flax seed, cinnamon and ginger.  

3.  Stir in carrots, coconut, raisins and nuts to dry ingredients.

4.  Add coconut oil and agave syrup/nectar and mix well with a spoon until you have a lumpy dough.

5.  Shape dough into balls and gently pat down onto cookie sheet.

6.  Bake 14-16 minutes and allow to cool.  Cookies will be moist inside.

Makes 16.
