Recipe: Carrot Spice Cookies

February 3, 2010 at 5:16 am Leave a comment

You all know how much I love carrot cake! I would have named this recipe ‘Carrot Cake Cookies’ but I’m sure that would have been confusing. Regardless, here is my recipe for moist cookies of the carrot variety. 🙂

Carrot Spice Cookies

(Recipe yields approx. 12 big cookies)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Sucanat
  • 1/2 cup carrot pulp (or finely grated carrot)
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine (like Earth Balance)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tb ground flax seed
  • 4 Tb water
  • 6 Tb almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 1/2 C walnuts, 1/2 C raisins (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350*F and lightly grease a large baking sheet. If you have a silicone baking mat, use that instead.
  2. In a small container, mix the ground flax seed and 4 Tb water and set aside. It will be a very gooey consistency. This is the ‘egg’ in dairy-free baking, and will be added to the rest of the ingredients later.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add vanilla, ground flax mixture, and vegan margarine to the dry ingredients and continue with mixing.
  5. While mixing add the milk one tablespoon at a time, until everything is well combined.
  6. Drop healthy-sized spoonfuls of the cookie dough on your cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches apart from each spoonful.
  7. Bake in the oven for 18-22 minutes, or until they are a great golden brown color on top.
  8. Gently remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.

Enjoy with a nice cold glass of almond milk. 🙂
