{July 17, 2010}   Chewy Carrot Coconut Cookies

This was my second experience with a dehydrator, here’s the recipe:

Ingredients for 10 cookies:
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup coconut shavings
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons raw honey
1 cup raw unsalted walnuts, ground (a coffee grinder is great for it)
2 teaspoons mesquite powder
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 pinch clove
1 pinch nutmeg

Mix all ingredients well, making sure the honey is spread evenly throughout the batter. You can use your clean sprightly fingers, or a wooden spoon. Once you have an even, dense and sticky paste, make ten little disks (of the cookie shape you like) and flatten them on a dehydrator.
Turn the dehydrator to 105F (41C) and dehydrate for about 4-6 hours. My advice is to check at 4 hours and see how chewy you want them to be (the denser you like them, the longer you want to keep them in).
You can serve them as soon as they’re out of the dehydrator, or keep them in the fridge for a few days.
