Let me tell you guys something, I suck at baking. Now before you immediately exit out of this post let me just tell you why. Cooking is like creative problem solving, don’t have an ingredient? Just make it or find another substitute. Cooking can go from failure to a work of genius in a matter of seconds. Baking on the other hand, is like a math problem. I was always real bad at math. So I’ve been working really hard to figure out my own form of baking by trying to understand what mixtures of ingredients yield different textures and consistency. I’ve had a lottttt of failures but I’ve also created a couple of freakin delicious recipes. Now if you are a very traditional baker and have a traditional mindset when it comes to baked goods I’m not suggesting you try making these cookies. However if you like tasty treats that also provide you with some nutritional benefits like protein, fiber and healthy fats then bake away!
I keep craving like 3 different cookies at once so that is what I made. I don’t think cookies make sense with out chocolate chips but if chocolate and carrots sounds weird to you then feel free to omit. Or if you are not a nut person you can certainly leave those out as well. Hope you enjoy!!
