          2 tsp baking powder

            ½ tsp baking soda (remove for high altitude)

              1 ½ tsp cinnamon

                ½ tsp nutmeg

                  ¼ tsp salt

                    ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

                      2 tbsp neutral flavored oil, I used avocado

                        ¾ cup plain coconut or oat milk

                          1/3 cup sugar

                            1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

                              ¾ cup shredded carrots

                                ⅓ cup raisins

                                  2 tbsp brown or white sugar for topping (optional)


                                    combine the water and flax seed in a medium mixing bowl and set aside for 10-15 minutes

                                      combine the dry ingredients (oat flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt) in a small mixing bowl and mix well

                                        add the remaining wet ingredients (applesauce, oil, milk, sugar, and vanilla) to the bowl with the flax seed and water, combine well

                                          add the carrots to the wet ingredients

                                            stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, blend well

                                              fold the raisins into the mixture

                                                cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, overnight works too

                                                  remove from refrigerator and preheat oven to 400 F

                                                    spoon the batter onto a parchment paper lined baking tray, about 4 tbsp per serving

                                                      sprinkle tops with sugar

                                                        bake for 25-27 minutes until internal temperature of 200 F is reached

                                                          cool completely on a cooling rack before serving
