The recipe uses oat which is a great alternative to plain flour and it's gluten-free. You don't have to buy oat flour, you can make your own. Just place oats in a food processor and blitz until you have a flour texture.
Muscovado sugar, gives slightly chewy texture as well as caramel taste. To spice up the thing, we use cinnamon and cloves but you can swap this for any other spice you like - ginger, nutmeg or even cardamom.
Wash the carrots well and using a vegetable peeler peel off their skins. Place a box grater on a cutting board. Hold a box grater with left hand and peeled carrot in right hand. Place the carrot against the side of grater with smaller holes. Grate the carrots using a downward motion.
Be careful to keep your hands and fingers out of the way.
For this recipe you need only two bowls, spatula and baking tray. Recipe starts with stirring all dry ingredients in one bowl and whisking wet in another. Then, pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients along with grated carrots and fold until just combined.
Once you have the dough ready, scoop with a tablespoon mixture, roll into ball, flatten slightly and press tops into coconut flakes. Arrange on the baking tray and bake for only 8-10 minutes until they star to turn golden. Don't overbake them as they will become to dry. Your little carrot cookies are ready to enjoy!
Cookies need to be completely cool before store them. If you have some leftover cookies, store them in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days. To prevent sticking when you store cookies, arrange them in a single layer with piece of baking paper between layers.
