Carrot Raisin Spice Chewies
Delicious! A bit on the sweet side.
I used 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce.
Next time: a ripe banana instead of all the sugars.
1/3 cup nondairy milk
1 Tblsp ground flax seeds
½ cup canola or peanut oil (1/4 cup applesauce & 1/4 oil)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
½ tsp finely shredded orange zest
1.5 tsp vanilla
1 ¾ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
1 cup shredded carrots, lightly packed
½ cup coconut
½ cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350°
Beat together milk, flax seeds, oil, sugars, orange zest & vanilla. Sift in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Stir to moisten and fold in carrots, walnuts and raisins. Dough will be moist and sticky.
Drop generous tablespoons of dough onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 14 – 16 mins until edges are bropwn and tops are firm. Let cookies rest 10 mins before transferring to wire racks to cool.
