I had a bottle of ginger syrup that I bought at my local health food store and I wanted to use it. It's a little strong for pancakes and waffles, and had been sitting in my pantry for a few months. Time to use it up!
Here is the recipe:
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
1/2 Cup of unsweetened apple sauce
1 Cup of ginger syrup (but you could use agave or maple syrup)
1/2 Cup of canola oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Cups of all-purpose flour
2 Cups of rolled oats
1/4 cup of hemp hearts
2 tsps of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 Cup of grated carrots
1 tbs of grated fresh ginger
1 Cup of dried cranberries (you could use raisins, chopped dates, currants, or dried cherries)
1. Stir dry ingredients together.
2. Whisk wet ingredients together.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and also add the grated carrot and ginger. Mix together.
4. Add the driedcranberries
Place by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and cook for 15 minutes.
Here are the cookies before baking...
... and here they are, nicely golden, fresh from the oven!
