Carrot Walnut Cookies

Makes about 2 dozen

1 cup raw unsalted walnuts
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup whole wheat pasty flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 carrots, grated
1 apple grated
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup apple juice

In a food processor combine walnuts, oats, and raisins.  Pulse until finely ground.  Transfer to a bowl and stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger.  Add carrots, apple, banana, and apple juice.  Stir until combined.

Drop by tablespoons (I used a mini cookie scooper) onto baking sheets lines with parchment paper.  Press down on each cookie with the back of a fork.  Bake until tops and bottoms are lightly browned. About 20 minutes.

Let them cool for a few minutes, then transfer to wire rack.  I threw them in the freezer so when I have a sweet tooth, I just pull one out!!  ENJOY!
