BLW Recipe: Carrot cake cookies

This morning after a night of barely any sleep Baby D was full of beans by 5:30 am...lucky me.

So, what does any normal mum do at this time in the morning do? Bake of course!

I wanted a little sweet snack for her to take on a morning outing today and I'm still not giving her sugar so concocted this quick and easy recipe. The sweetness comes from banana and the carrots add some extra goodness.
This batch made 8 small cookies - about the size of a 50p.

Preheat the oven to 170C, 160C fan or gas mark 3.

Half a small banana - 40g or so
A small grated carrot - about 35g
Rolled oats - 20g
Flour (plain or self raising) - 10g
Raisins - 10g
A pinch of cinnamon 

Mash the banana into a bowl then add all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Grease a small baking sheet and roll blobs of the batter into little balls then flatten onto the tray.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Simple! They are a hit with Baby D.
