Carroty Breakfast Cookies

Ingredients

    Dough
  • 1 1/4 rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (1 banana-ish)
  • 1/2 cup smooth raw almond butter, oil stirred in
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp liquid virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    mix-ins
  • 1/2 tsp finely grated carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup raisins or mini chocolate chips (dairy free or regular)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ‘ F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, salt, almond flour, and brown rice flour.
  3. In a small bowl, mash the banana and measure. I never worry if i have a little extra!
  4. In a blender or food processor, add the banana, almond butter, maple syrup, flaxseed, melted/liquid coconut oil, and vanilla. Process until smooth.
  5. Pour the banana mixture over the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Add your mix-ins and fold.
  7. Scoop 2 tbsp of cookie dough onto the baking sheet and press with the palm of your hand. Sometimes I like to wet and lightly dry my hands before pressing so the mixture is smooth on top. The cookies won’t spread so you can place them pretty close together. I usually get about 15-17 cookies.
  8. Bake for 16-18 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  9. Cool completely before storing in the fridge. Cookies are best baked fresh but will last 3-4 days in an air tight container. You can also wrap each cookie in seran wrap, and place them into a freezer bag/container, to freeze and defrost as needed.

Notes

My daughter doesn't like nuts or coconut so i sub raisins and chocolate chips but the crunch and subtle flavor of pecans, walnuts, or coconut would go so nicely with the carrots.

Also, I like to make a double batch to freeze!
