Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted, 52 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (128 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey (60 g)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (46 g)
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (62 g; all purpose flour may be used)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup ground flax (26 g)
  • 1 carrot (finely shredded, 1/2 cup, 40 g)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (sweetened coconut recommended)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pecans (chopped)

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil.
  • Stir in all wet ingredients: applesauce, vanilla, honey and eggs.
  • Add all dry ingredients: rolled oats, white whole wheat flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder and flax.
  • Fold in the carrots, coconut, dried cranberries and pecans.
  • Using a measuring cup, scoop 1/4 cup portions onto the parchment paper and form into circular 'cookies' about 1/2 inch tall. The batter will be soft.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes, until the tops of the cookies spring back when touched.

Storage

  • Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • These are most likely freezer-friendly as well.
