Roasted Carrot Oatmeal #cookie recipe

As school approaches, putting healthy snacks into your childrens lunch is probably on the top of your list. I love making batches of healthy cookies in advance, popping them in the freezer and taking them out as needed for lunches and snacks.


1.5 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup golden brown sugar
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
splash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon
1/4 cup roasted carrot puree
1/4 cup shredded carrots

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Mix your dry ingredients, followed by the wet ingredients. You will likely find that due to the decreased amount of butter and sugar, the cookie dough will be gummy. That's totally okay. These cookies are approved by my preschooler, so never fear...they will still eat them!

Bake at 350F for approx 12minutes, then cool.

I usually toss them all in a zipper seal bag for the freezer, and pull them out as needed, usually the night before so they are thawed by the time he will want to eat them!
