Carrot Coconut Cookies

WOW!  These cookies are unbelievably delicious and addicting!  Beware, these cookies will preform their own magic trick and disappear! 

recipe from You Won't Believe It's Vegan

1 cup spelt flour (all purpose is fine)
3/4 cup grated carrots
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup coconut crystals (or sucanat/brown sugar)
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted (vegan butter is fine too)
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, carrots, coconut, sugar, oats, baking powder, and salt.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together coconut oil, water, oil and vanilla.  Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir until incorporated.  Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.

Using a large spoon, drop mounds onto prepared cookie sheet.  Flatten with the palm of your hand and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden and just set.  Cool on cookie sheet before transferring to rack.
