My youngest has been refusing breakfast recently, she seems to be going through a fussy stage, so I wanted to come up with some healthy oatmeal cookies for her, that she could snack on. These were kind of an experiment of a few ingredients mixed together, but the result was super yummy. Think carrot cake in cookie form. My eldest approved too, he arrived home from school, spotted said cookies and devoured two on the spot. I am thinking of other variations too, so watch this space.
Oatmeal, Carrot and Raisin Cookies
Makes approx 15 cookies
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal
- 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup of butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, warmed
- 1/4 teaspoon of all spice
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/3 cup of grated carrot
- 1/4 cup of raisins
- 2 teaspoons of fig butter (I used Trader Joes ones)
Preheat oven to 180c or 350f (gas mark 4)
In a bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, all spice and cinnamon.
In another bowl mix together the butter, apple sauce, fig butter.
Add butter mixture to the oatmeal and flour until ingredients are well combined and ten stir in the carrot and raisins.
Line a baking tray with some parchment paper and spoon about a tablespoon of the mixture onto the tray, flatten it down with the back of a fork, so that you have a rough oval shape. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Place in the oven and bake until biscuits are nice and golden approx 18-20mins, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
If your kids are like mine, these won’t last very long at all. But otherwise store in an airtight container.
