INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp baking flour aluminum free is a must
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pastured egg have it at room temperature as it’ll allow everything to combine properly
  • 1/2 cup grated organic Carrot
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted grass-fed butter coconut oil is also great – I just find the butter keeps the taste neutral
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup organic raisins or currants raisins tend to have an oil coating on them so make sure you get 100% our organic raisins without any preservatives
