To Make

Heat the oven to 375 F.

In a big bowl, combine oat flour, quick-cooking oats, grated carrots, raisins, ground flax seeds and cinnamon. Stir well to combine.

Fold in the applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir well until the mixture forms a soft batter/dough.

Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Use a spoon or your hand to shape/flatten the dough into a cookie shape. These will not expand or spread out in baking, so it’s ok to put them close together.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. They will become slightly golden brown.

Cool, then enjoy! Store in the fridge for best shelf-life — they will spoil quickly at room temperature due to their high moisture content.
