oo these are good! i used brown rice flour and followed the suggestion of using 2T of brown rice syrup and it was still a little too sweet for me. will be making these again! :)


;)b Great recipe. I only used 2 T. of brown rice syrup in place of the 1/4 c. of maple syrup and they were still plenty sweet. Next time I may add cloves, raisins, or walnuts, as I think any would compliment these nicely. Thank you!

Wow this was really good, I had to use up some carrots so I decided to give this a shot. I hardley got the chance to follow this recipe how it was listed though:
I didn't have nutmeg and used some mocha cappuccino sprinkles instead.
I used regular oil instead of apple sauce because we were all out
I didn't use any vanilla at all
Instead of sucanat sugar I used half raw and half plane white sugar.
I also used whole wheat flour

So when I was making this I realized that the consistancey was really wierd, like play dough. I've never baked anything with a texture like that before so I added a little bit of almond milk but didn't change the texture too much. I left it in there for 25 minutes and it is seriously awesome.
I'm going to make a really big batch of this later tonight so I can use up the rest of my carrots.

Thanks so much for the recipe! C:
