These Avocado Carrot Oatmeal Cookies have no sugar or eggs, instead, they're held together and sweetened with avocado and banana. They're great for kids - both to eat and help to make!
I call these my 'baby biscuits'.
With no sugar or any nasties, I'm happy to feed them to my little ones regularly.
They are stuffed full of goodness and they're so easy to make that my 3 year old can easily help me.
This recipe is very forgiving so feel free to substitute the carrot for courgette, parsnip, swede, apple, basically anything you can grate.
Try it with coconut, seeds, other dried fruit... so many possibilities.
I know it sounds strange, but avocado acts like butter in this cookie recipe. Only healthier and full of goodness.
It's also a great way to sneak in some nutritious vegetables!
sugar free cookies
The older your banana, the sweeter they will be so they really don't need any sugar or honey.
I always keep an eye out for overripe bananas at my greengrocer so we can make these carrot oatmeal cookies.
I have some leftover bananas, so I plan to make my cauliflower banana bundt cake (trust me, you can't taste the cauliflower!) and my vegan banana bread. Both are lower- or no- sugar so are sweetened with lovely ripe bananas.
