Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Apple and Carrot

Easy recipe and tips by expert Amy Palanjian

Step 1

Add all ingredients to a bowl. I prefer to grate the carrot myself on a box grater as it usually has a finer texture than shredded carrots from the store.

Step 2

Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl using a wooden spoon to start and then using (clean) hands to bring the batter completely together if needed.

Step 3

Portion out 2-tablespoon sized balls of dough, place onto the prepared baking sheet. Space them about an inch apart—they won't spread, so close is okay.

Step 4

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. Let cool on the baking sheet and serve.

Step 5

These are best eaten on the day they are made, but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Step 6

Stir together ¼ cup powdered sugar and 1/2-1 teaspoon milk to make a simple icing and drizzle it over the cooled cookies.

Tip

They get a little softer as they sit in the container and younger toddlers may prefer them warmed just slightly so they are easier to chew.
