Carrot Cookies 

DSC_0354

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)

Honey Tahini Almond Cookies

DSC_0039

This is one recipe that I tried from pinterest that I will definitely be making again!  Not only are they healthy but they are addicting.  These cookies are packed with nutrition and naturally sweetened with honey.  I also added a little agave nectar to mine for a little extra sweetness.

I got the recipe from a blog called http://www.anjasfood4thought.com/2014/03/honey-tahini-almond-cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds

Combine the almond meal, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.  Next combine the honey, vanilla, tahini, and agave.  Slowly stir in the dry mix until everything is mixed up.  Roll into quarter sized balls and roll into the sesame seeds, coating the balls.  Press them down on your lightly greased cookie sheet so they are about 1/4″ thick.
