Bungalow Munchers

As I mentioned before, I needed to try my hand at cookies w/ avocado. Jeri from Bungalow Munch also wanted me to make a Bungalow Munch Cookie recipe. Thus, Bungalow Munchers are born.
Version 1.0: 
 I got a little bit carried away I think with too many ideas trying to fit into one cookie with these, but they are still quite delicious and well on their way to being a solid recipe.
The flavor is superb! If I can get the same flavor but have these present like cookies and not semi crispy granola-mush balls I will be on fire!

Sweet and flavorful yet a only a bit crispy on the outside and pretty mushy like bread pudding (I don't mind at all!) on the inside. The best tasting bread pudding on the planet! Chocolatey (carob) Carroty Granola-y Cinnamon-y Raisin-y goodness! I almost don't even care if they act like cookies or not. 
Version 2.0
I went for more dry ingredients the 2nd go around, and it definitely helped, but I need push it a tad more.  I kept the flavor except with more carrot (yess) and a little less sweet (the middle ground will be best) going from agave nectar to raw cane sugar, so will switch half-half.

(the lighting made them extra yellow, but they actually look more like 2 photos above)
I shaped them how I wanted them to turn out knowing they wouldn't flatten and they ended up much more like cookies! Still a bit soft, not crumbly, but not quite holding together fully either. The changes I'm incorporating below in the recipe should do the trick.
  • 4t Egg White powder
  • 2T Coconut flour
  • 4T Brown rice flour
  • 2T Whole Raw Cane Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • 2T Agave Nectar
  • 1t Cinnamon
  • 1/2t Baking powder
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/4c Almond butter
  • 1t Vanilla
  • 1.5c Bungalow Munch Granola
  • 1/4c Carob Chips (or chocolate, just didn't have any...) *the more the merrier though!
  • 42g Raisins (I had a small kid snack box, didn't measure it)
  • 1.75c Shredded Carrot
Mix dry ingredients, food processor/blender/smart stick wet ingredients, add final dry ingredients and bake at 300ยบ at 30-40 min shaped in their final desired form!

Gluten/Dairy Free with delicious carrot, cinnamon, raisins, granola, and carob chips.  The texture of the carrot/chips/granola is so bomb, yummy morsels to bite into in every bite! If you try out this recipe with or without great success please comment/let me know what you think/how it goes because it's one of my only recipes I came up with without really adapting from another one!
