Granola Cookies with Apple and Carrot


Are you having a picky eater? Making your child eat a healthy food has been a straggle? I have a great solution for you. How about healthy cookies? These cookies are fun BUT they are also super healthy! They are filled with lots of good stuff. Perfect combination for fun and nutritious breakfast that will make your toddler ask for more! Give it a try and let me know what you think and most importantly what your toddler thinks of them.

Also, they are free from eggs, diary, gluten and you can make them peanut free as well. In the below recipe I use walnuts but feel free to remove them and keep everything else unchanged.

Total Servings: ~20 cookies
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 18 mins
Total Time  28 mins

1 cup whole grain oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup grated carrot (about 1 large)
½ cup grated apple (about 1 medium)
½ cup raisins
½ cup cranberries
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon flax seeds
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup honey

1. Preheat oven to 375 F (175 C).
2. Peel and grate both carrot and apple. Mix together in a large bowl.
3. Add all other ingredients to the bowl and mix all together until well combined.
4. Roll the cookie dough into 1 inch sized balls and place onto prepared baking sheet. Press down until ¼ – ½ inch thick. They won’t spread while baking but make sure they  are spaced out about ½ inch apart.
5. Bake for 18-20 mins.
