Gettin' my bake on - Carrot Cookies

Still attempting to get a little baketastic....there is still a long way to go!

These cookies are freezable, which is one of the reasons I wanted to give them a go. Just wrap them individually in glad wrap and pop several of them in a zip-lock bag before putting them in the freezer. They will thaw in the kids lunchbox by recess.

They are also healthy :)

You'll need...

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup carrot, finely grated
  • 1/4 cup sultanas
  • 1/4 cup apricots, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Then you'll need to....

  1. Preheat over to 180 degrees Celsius. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Sift flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl and mix.
  3. Stir in oats, carrot, sultanas, apricots, coconut, chia seeds and apple sauce.
  4. Stir through the oil until just combined.
  5. Take tablespoons full of mixture and roll into balls, place on the baking tray. Flatten each ball with a fork.
  6. Bake 20 minutes.
This mixture makes 24 small biscuits.

Do you have any healthy freezable biscuit recipes?
