October 25, 2017

  • Yields: 15-20 Cookies


2 tablespoons ground chia seeds

1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup cashew butter or almond butter (I use Trader Joe's Cashew Butter)

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1/2 cup arrowroot powder

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup grated carrots (about 1 large carrot)

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped walnuts


1Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.

2Combine the ground chia seeds and hot water. Let sit for about 5 minute while you measure the rest of the ingredients.

3Place the cashew butter, flaxseed, arrowroot powder, applesauce, maple syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Use a hand mixer to evenly combine. Add the chia seed mixture and mix until totally smooth and incorporated.

4Add the carrots, raisins and walnuts and mix to gently combine.

5Using a cookie scoop or wet spoon, scoop the cookies out onto the prepared baking sheets. Use wet hands to flatten slightly if desired.

6Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden on the edges and bouncy to the touch. Let cool for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
