carrot & cinnamon cookies

carrot & cinnamon cookies

When love of food and health meet in the kitchen, you get balance! This means that cookies can still be part of your life! Sometimes, the children will ask "Oh no mummy, is that another one of your healthy recipes?". How about "No" for an answer until they try it! These new cookies bring together some of the flavours of a carrot cake without the unnecessary sugar. A great success at school pick-up time.

the health boost tip

These cookies are soft and moist with lots of flavour. The spices can be changed and the pecan nuts replaced with pumpkin seeds or other seed for a school compliant nut-free version to include in a lunchbox. Being sweetened only by banana and the cinnamon/vanilla combination they are perfect for after school or a catch up cuppa!
