An easy, guilt-less cookie recipe by Vintage Mixer.
Vegan Spiced Carrot Cake Cookies
adapted from Whole Foods
1 cup raw unsalted walnuts
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries (use whatever combo of raisins and cranberries to equal 1 cup of dried-fruit))
1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 carrots, grated
1 apple, grated
1 very ripe banana, peeled and mashed
1/4 cup almond milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
Combine walnuts, oats, raisins and cranberries in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl and stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger. Add carrots, apple, banana and almond milk and stir until combined. Drop by rounded tablespoons an inch apart on the prepared baking sheets, making about 24 cookies. Press down on each cookie with the back of a fork to flatten slightly. Bake until tops and bottoms are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
