Let it suffice to say that these are possibly my favorite cookies of all time; we mainly make them at Christmas to INDULGE! They are from the awesomely wonderful "Vive Le Vegan" by Dreena Burton, one of my veg food idols!
Preheat oven to 350. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, coconut, sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, extracts, and oil, then stir in the carob chips and tasted pecans.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until they're well combined (don't overmix!).
Spoon the batter onto a nonstick or parchment paper-lined sheet, flattening each just a little. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until lightly golden (any longer and you risk drying them out). Let cool for about 1 minute on the sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: I always use the spelt flour, but Zaar doesn't recognize it so I put the white flour as the first option for nutritional accuracy. I put regular salt rather than sea salt for the same reason.
