INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium carrot, grated

  • ⅔ cup (100g) whole-grain flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg

  • 5 tbsp. (75ml) maple syrup

METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Mix the oats, flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl.

  3. Spoon the mixture (1 heaped tbsp. per cookie) onto a baking tray lined with paper and shape into rounds, leaving space between each cookie as they will spread slightly while cooking.
