Ingredients

  • 1 Cup raw unsalted walnuts
  • 1 Cup rolled oats
  • 1 Cup raisins
  • 1/2 Cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1 very ripe banana, peeled and mashed
  • 1/4 Cup apple juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 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 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets, making about 24 cookies. Press down on each cookie with the back of a fork to flatten slightly. Bake until tops and bottoms are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

Carrot Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Carrot Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
