Carrot Haystacks

Carrot Haystacks


  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp whole chiaseed or flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp brown rice flour or almond flour


  1. In a bowl, mix carrots, oil, flour, coconut and honey. Mix in flaxseed or chiaseed. ( I always have a chiaseed mixture on hand in my fridge as I put it in my smoothies) To make chiaseed or flaxseed mixture, mix 2 tbsp chiaseed with 6 tbsp water and put in fridge to congeal. Mix arrowroot with a little water and mix in with other ingredients. Let mixture sit for a few minutes to absorb all the moisture and then form haystacks on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 325F for 10-15 minutes.
