A fun and reasonably healthy Spring treat- go ahead Easter Bunny!
2 cups unsweetened finely shredded coconut
½ cup honey
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
4 tablespoons white whole wheat flour, all purpose or Gluten Free Oat Flour (such as Bob’s red mill) if you are on a gluten-free diet
½ cup liquid egg whites
2 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon powdered ginger (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, spices and coconut in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, beat together the eggs and honey. Slowly add the flour/coconut mixture to the larger bowl with the egg whites and honey until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the carrot, pecans and raisins. Drop in small spoonfuls (using a scooper is helpful) onto greased cookie sheets and bake 11-15 minutes, until tops are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned.
