Oatmeal Raisin Carrot Cookies

3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce (generous)
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 cup grated carrots
2 cup oats
2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, mix together oil, applesauce, sugar, egg, vanilla and spices.
Stir in flour mixture. Once no streaks of flour remain, stir in carrots, oats and raisins.

Drop tablespoonfuls of batter onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, until cookies are set and lightly browned on the edges. Cool for 3 or 4 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
