Eggless Gingery Carrot Cookies

I can definitely say that i cant live without onions, tomatoes and carrots..i can manage to prepare from appetizier to dessert with these three ingredients..U can guess that i have loads of carrots in my fridge anytime and everytime..I was planning quite a long back to make out cookies with carrots with oatmeal and whole wheat flour, this weekend i tried out this gorgeous cookies with apple sauce,butter and with nuts spiced with ginger powder..I was really happy of this eggless carrots cookies as they were really soft, crunchy and also chewy, even my husband who doesnt love cookies loved these beauties..Needless to say that my lil ones enjoyed having these delicious cookies for their breakfast, as dessert for lunch and for snacks with yogurt...None will guess that u have used carrots in this cookies unless u tell them, yea finely grated carrots chunks get well mingled with quick cooking oats and flours and obviously its an excellent way to feed picky eater who never ever likes carrots.

1/2cup Grated Carrots
1cup Quick Cooking Oats
1cup Wheat pastry flour
1/2cup All purpose flour
3tbsp Apple sauce
1cup Sugar (grounded)
1/4cup Butter (room temperature)
1tsp Baking soda
1/2tsp Baking powder
1tsp Ginger powder
2tbsp Almond nuts (grounded coarsely)
pinch Salt

Beat together the butter and grounded sugar or u can use very well confectioner's sugar, until soft and creamy, meanwhile in a large bowl mix together the quick cooking oats, wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, grounded almond nutss and grated carrots...add slowly the creamed sugered butter,ginger powder and apple sauce to the flour mixture and turned everything as soft dough...

Preheat the oven at 350F, line a baking sheet over a baking pan, grease the sheet...take a small portion from the dough, roll them as small golf sized balls..place this rolled doughs over the greased baking sheet with some space between them and bake for 15-20minutes in middle rack or until they turns golden brown..

Enjoy this delicious gingery carrot cookies!!

Whenever I find carrots in my fridge I eat them raw. You have a creative idea to make cookies out of them.

My mother says it is always better to consume vegetables raw to preserve their nutrition. I hope she is not lazy to prepare new dishes. :) No she is not!!!

The cookies look great and sorry that I missed some of the recipes. December is a busy month and I am bulk with work and friends so could not find time for blogging and cooking.
