One thing that I learned after venturing out on my own, was that feeding yourself can be hard work! Especially feeding yourself PROPERLY. I know that it’s important to get in my 7-10 fruits and vegetables a day, yet even with all the delicious options, sometimes I find it can be difficult. When I get that sweet tooth craving, I just don’t feel like chowing down on broccoli or Brussels sprouts and find myself grabbing a bag of cookies instead.

When I came across this recipe for Peanut Butter Carrot Cookies, I was a little sceptical at best. How could carrots and chocolate chips have any place belonging in the same cookie? However, I gave it a try and was very pleasantly surprised! You can’t even taste the carrots, yet I know they are in there! I imagine that this would be a great cookie recipe for young kids to sneak veggies into those picky eaters. If you would like to try this recipe out for yourself, just read on below. I would love to hear how it turns out for you!
