dessert of the week

we finally made it through the ice cream cake. and we are almost finished with the red velvet cupcakes. but i figured it was time for a new dessert.
i went back to an old favorite, carrot oatmeal cookies, from 101 Cookbooks .

carrot oatmeal cookies

these are great cookies to make for vegans because they are already egg-free. and there is no processed sugar. and they have carrots in them!

and they are easy to change/modify. the first time i made them i used almonds instead of walnuts and topped them with coconut. this time i added some sunflower seeds.

Gah, I'm still confused about the whole sugar thing in veganism. I think the brand I got is vegan but based on the info I read it said that organic sugar is vegan. Anyway, these look good.

i usually just stick to the vegan whole foods sugar. but i think if you were to get organic, you would probably be ok.
