    • 2/3 cup oat flour (55g)
    • 3 tablespoons coconut flour (22g)
    • 75 g vanilla protein powder (about 2 scoops, I used OL Vanilla Pea Protein, it also would probably work with Casein powder)

    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder

    • 1/2 cup water (from carrot cooking liquid)
