You won’t taste the carrots in these yummy cookies.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies

4 large roughly chopped carrots

1/2 semisweet cup chips, melted

1/3 cup vegan butter

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup finely chopped raw walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil 3 baking sheets. Process the carrots in a food processor until ground but not pureed. Remove 1 cup of the ground carrots and place it in a bowl. Add the vegan butter substitute, melted chocolate, sugar and vanilla and mix using an electric mixer until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add to the wet mixture until just combined.

Bake about 15 minutes or until set with firm edges. Let cool for 4 minutes on baking sheets then cool completely on racks. Store in a sealed container.
