Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, beat together the vegan butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. 
  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix together. Mix in almond milk. Fold in the grated carrots and pecans.
  • Let the mixture sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 325F degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Taking about a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough, form a ball for each cookie and place on baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Press the dough balls down slightly with your fingers to form thick discs.
  • Bake for 14 minutes. They'll still be soft, but they'll firm up a bit once cooled.
  • While the cookies are cooling, make the cream cheese frosting.
  • Dollop a tablespoon or two of frosting on the flat side of half of the cooled cookies. Complete your sandwiches with the other half of the cookies.
  • These are best stored in the fridge if not eating right away.

Notes

This recipe makes about 20-24 cookies, or 10-12 sandwiches.
