carrot cakies.

Carrot cake cookies. 4 food groups in one tricky device. Now, this is not to say that cookies are an acceptable substitute for food, but when your child wont eat his veggies, this is better than an oreo.

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1/2 cup room temperature butter
2 large carrots, shredded with the smallest grade of the grater.
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
mix ins of choice (raisins will do, i used mixed dried fruit bits)

cream butter, sugar, syrup, spices, and carrots. add two eggs and incorporate. add dry ingredients and dried fruit and nuts of choice. mix until smooth. bake for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. or until they feel firm and the edges just start to brown. cool and feed to your picky kid.
