I recently made these beauties from the Whole Foods website. I was craving something sweet, but not-too-sweet, you know?
These moist, flavorful, not-too-sweet cookies are excellent for snacks, breakfast or dessert.
1 cup raw unsalted walnuts
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins
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 apple juice
MethodPreheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine walnuts, oats and raisins 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 apple juice 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.
So they come out of the oven looking like this....
And after I take a bite out of one, they look like this :)
