Carrot Cookies With Walnuts
1 cup unsalted nuts
1 cup oatmeal
2 carrots, grated
1 cup raisins
1 1 / 4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 / 2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1 / 4 teaspoon baking powder
A grated apple
1 / 2 c. teaspoon ground ginger
1 very ripe banana, peeled and crushed
1 / 4 cup apple juice
Preheat 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.
