1 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup dried pineapple chopped

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ cup maple syrup

1 Eggland's Best large egg

  10. Cool on the baking pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  11. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  12. To heat, microwave each cookie for 15 to 30 seconds depending on the wattage of the microwave

    ***I used a bag of matchstick carrots from the grocery store to make these cookies. However, you can also just shred whole carrots (about 1 inch shreds) to add to the recipe. It is VERY IMPORTANT if you are shredding whole carrots for the recipe that you put the shreds on a layer of paper towels for at least 10 minutes to drain out excess water.
