Carrot cake cookies that are low sugar and gluten-free vegan!
Finally, a cookie I can sink my teeth into without feeling guilty. This cookie has been adapted from my cookie dough pastry crust, it was used for an ice cream pie. Originally I was going to use it for ice cream sandwich cookies but they were too similar and I wanted to change things up a bit. So without further ado here it is…
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year…but no so if you’re calorie counting or clean eating! I struggle every year at this time of year, it’s cold and I become unmotivated. Not this year, I have planned everything up to January.
They were too cute not to give a bit of attention to so I spent 2 hours icing these bad boys ready to give out to my nieces and nephews as a pre-Christmas treat!
I’m not the best I’m awful at icing things as I’ve never really Iced things before, so it was definitely an..interesting experience on a Monday Morning.
*This recipe has been altered to be more stable and biscuit-like. I have removed the water from the recipe as it shrinks and would ruin the shape of the biscuits. The oil I halved as the mixture was quite thin the last time I made it and I’ve included sugar to help make these biscuits less chewy in texture.
If you want them crisper you can take away one table spoon of flour and replace them with half a tbsp of butter or oil.
Tip: All sweet potatoes are different (sounds like something your mum would say) but it’s true! Some sweet potatoes carry more water then others so be sure to add your liquid after you have formed your dough mix.
If you’re looking for a healthy cookie that the kids can really enjoy making, why not try this creative recipe. Not only is it healthy it gives children a real expanse on how they can get creative in the kitchen. A vegetable no longer needs to be something you have to bribe your children to eat. It can be a fun ingredient for cakes and cookies! Sweet potatoes are so versatile and I absolutely adore them in puddings and tarts (as you can tell).
I have created these for Christmas and will be making them throughout the year too, I have really enjoyed baking these and they’re so versatile throughout the year. Please think of these as a bookmarkable treat and creative bake with your kids, as I said, all children should be introduced to vegetables from an early age. If you like it be sure to pin & share it on social media! Thank you!
Have a great week
