Switching the all-purpose flour with oats & whole wheat flour boosts satiety. This fiber also helps to decrease the risk of kids developing obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Carrots pack in vitamins and are an immunity booster food, while raisins provide necessary calcium and potassium.
- • ½ cup quick oats
- • ½ cup whole wheat flour
- • ½ tsp baking powder
- • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- • A pinch of cardamom powder
- • ½ cup carrot (peeled & grated)
- • ¼ cup fresh coconut (shredded)
- • 2/3 cup mix of raisins & chopped nuts (as per your kid’s preference)
- • 4 tbsp coconut oil
- • 3 tablespoons of honey
- Firstly, set the oven to preheat at 375° F (or 190° C). Also, ready a baking sheet by lining it with parchment or foil paper.
- In a mixing bowl, add quick oats, whole wheat flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, & cardamom powder. Mix well.
- Now, stir in the grated carrots, shredded coconut, raisins, & chopped nuts.
- Next, warm the coconut oil & honey slightly to get a melted thin consistency. Pour this mixture into the mixing bowl and combine nicely to get sticky cookie dough.
- Take 1 tablespoon of the cookie dough, roughly shape it into a ball, and press to flatten into a half/quarter-inch thick raw cookie. Place it on the lined baking sheet.
- Shape & flatten the remaining cookie dough similarly. When laying the cookies on the baking sheet, maintain an inch gap between them.
- Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 375° F or till the edges turn golden.
- Lastly, let the oatmeal cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before serving.
To bind the cookie dough better, you may use a beaten egg. If the dough seems too dry, you can add a little more melted coconut oil, or honey, or 1-2 tablespoons of apple sauce.
