    WhiskingWings's Note:

    Adapted from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, these are like dense, chewy bites of all the best bits of carrot cake! The nuts are optional - I often leave them out (or add toasted sunflower seeds instead!).

      I love these cookies, they are full of good healthy stuff!<br/>The one thing I changed is the baking time. They didn't look done enough in the time specified in the recipe so after the 5 minutes on the top rack I added 20 more minutes on the lower rack for a total of 35 minutes.
