Gluten Free – Carrot Cake Cookies


Dry ingredients – Mix together

1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

1/2 Cup Amaranth Flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon cardamom (all spices optional)

Wet ingredients

1 stick butter – cream

4 eggs – add to butter

            Add to butter and egg

1/3 Cup applesauce

1/2 Cup Molasses

1 Cup (or a little more) grated carrot

Add dry ingredients to butter mixture with a hand blender at low speed.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir in

1/2 Cup quick cooking oats

1/2 Cup raisins

3/4 Cup walnut pieces

Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 350 on greased baking sheet.  To insure even baking, rotate pan halfway through.  I found about 13 minutes total to be plenty.  Watch the cookies until they turn golden/brown.  Makes around 24 large, or more if you form them to be smaller.
