Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 ½ cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup dried pineapple chopped
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup melted butter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and ginger. Add the carrots, pecans, pineapple, and coconut.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the vanilla, syrup, egg, and butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until completely combined.
  • Use a large scoop (about ¼ cup) to evenly divide the batter, placing about 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Flatten each portion with the back of the scoop or the palm of your hand to about ¾ inch thick.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges are golden. Cool on the baking pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. To heat, microwave each cookie for 15 to 30 seconds depending on the wattage of the microwave.
