INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats gluten-free if needed
  • 3/4 cup flour gluten-free blend if needed
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup milk lactose-free or non-dairy substitute if needed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a liner.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, spices and salt. Then mix in the grated carrot.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the rest of the ingredients together and then add to the dry mixture, combine well.
  4. Flaten out the dough in the bowl and imagine it quartered, you need to get 3 cookies out of each quarter (this is how I measure my dough per cookie it's usually about 1/4 cup dough per cookie). Then roll the dough into a ball and flatten on the cookie sheet to about 1/2-inch thick.
  5. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until nice and golden. Let cool on wire rack and store in an airtight container.
