Get your veggies in ~ while having dessert! Soft & chewy oatmeal cookies loaded with healthy carrots, currants & cinnamon. They’ are sure to be a hit!
I’ve learned that it’s hard to go wrong with a cookie. Which means, it’s the perfect sweet treat to doctor up with some “secret ingredients” - in this recipe, the ingredients aren’t so secret - but they for sure add an extra nutrtitious punch!
I used 2 different whole grains in this recipe - oatmeal & whole grain flour.
If cooking with your child, I strongly encourage you to expand on the healthy ingredients you are adding to this recipe! Not only do children love being kitchen helpers - this is a great way for you to start inspiriting them to love eating in a healthy happy way!!
These cookies have no refined sugar - the maple syrup, cinnamon, carrots and currants offer plenty of yummy sweetness!
These cookies were a hit with kiddos and adults! And it’s so great to be able to add some extra nutrients to a dessert favorite!
