Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Servings: 12 Servings

INGREDIENTS:


1 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats — I recommend quick oats over rolled oats, as the rolled oats will have a much firmer texture that is harder to chew
1 cup oat flour — see notes to make your own
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups peeled — grated carrots (about 8 ounces or 2 large carrots)
3/4 cup chopped raw walnuts — or pecans
1/4 cup raisins — or additional walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup honey — or pure maple syrup
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce — at room temperature
1/4 cup melted — cooled coconut oil or unsalted butter (I used coconut oil)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
FOR THE ORANGE ICING (OPTIONAL):
1/2 cup powdered sugar — sifted if lumpy
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice — plus additional as needed
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS:


• Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

• In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, oat flour, flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Add the carrots, walnuts, and raisins. With a rubber spatula, stir to combine.

• In a separate medium bowl, briskly whisk together the honey, applesauce, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. If your coconut oil resolidifies, pop the mixture in the microwave for a few seconds, then stir until smooth. Pour the liquid mixture into the oat mixture and fold in by hand, just until combined. The dough will be thick, wet, and sticky.
