Carrots+Cookies=Carrot Cookies!Posted: February 9, 2011 | |
Yummmmm!! I’m not gonna brag about how tasty these are. Buuuuuuuuut, I’m going to, because they are!!! Carrots, and cookies, and slightly sweet goodness!! Eat these up! And enjoy their health benefits (while getting your veggies)! :)
Here’s the recipe I came up with one bored, experimental day:
1 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 stick butter (softened)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
juice from 1/2 an orange
1 cup shredded carrots
2/3 cup raisins
Mix the dry ingredients (through the cinnamon) in a bowl. Stir well with a whisk.
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, add the honey, vanilla, egg, orange juice, shredded carrots, and raisins.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Mix until no dry ingredients remain.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on a greased baking sheet. Place in 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
