I actually found this recipe in the little booklet that came with my ninja blender. It looked good (and easy) so I thought I’d give it a try. It looked good and has carrots so its sorta healthy right?
It was super easy and fast to make since I just added all the ingredients and blended them. You definitely don’t need a blender to make these though.
The ingredients are:
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs of flax eggs
2 cups flour
1 cup grated carrots
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
The last two ingredients I added to the recipe. Just combine everything and drop teaspoon sized amounts onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-12 minutes and that’s it! It was supposed to make 36 but I got about 28. (I made some a little bigger) These are nice because they aren’t too sweet, although I think they would be good with honey drizzled on them. I was going to take some to work but Ben likes them so much he didn’t what me to! I’ll have to make more. 😉 Anyway, enjoy!
I’ve been super excited all week because we bought a Ninja blender/processor last weekend. It even mixes dough so brace yourselves for the food posts! It’s kind of funny the things I get excited about now that I’m an adult but whatever now I can make more of my own food. It’ll be cheaper (maybe) and healthier!
The first recipe I tried out was for this beet hummus. Now if you don’t like beets this probably won’t be for you, but if your like me and love them then I’ve this a try. It’s fast and easy!
I can of chickpeas (hominy)
Cooked baby beets about 4
1 juiced lemon
2 or 3 tbsp. tahini
2 tbsp. olive oil
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. paprika
2 cloves minced garlic (I used the squeezable kind)
Now you don’t have to have a fancy pants blender for this, just a regular blender or food processor will do if it’s big enough. Just combine all ingredients and blend till smooth. Now mine was still a little chunky which is fine, but if you want it perfectly smooth you might want to blend the chickpeas before adding the rest of the ingredients. It only takes a few minutes and is delicious!
Sometimes I buy beet hummus from Whole foods but now I can make my own and it makes a ton! Also I can control what’s inside so I don’t have to worry about any preservatives or chemicals. The original recipie that I looked at was from The Year in Food.
