For the last week I’ve had barely any snacks in my house, as I had a problem with my food delivery (it’s all sorted now, thank God) so I thought I had to do some baking to appease my sweet tooth, and I thought something like this would be perfect, as I have most of the ingredients lying around already. I planned to make them and have a little treat every day, but I ate most of them in one go. Unfortunately this isn’t a recipe that lasts – they’re so yummy and moreish that you can’t just eat one! As you can probably guess, I’m in love with carrot cake, so I think 20 minutes was actually quite an impressive amount of time to have them uneaten.
Oh She Glows is one of my favourite food bloggers, in fact, she was the reason I decided to start a food blog of my own, her recipes gave me so much inspiration to create and cook for myself, so go and check her out here: www.ohsheglows.com – who are your inspirations? I love reading other people’s blogs and seeing what sort of things they love to create (for me, desserts and breakfasts are my favourite things to cook and eat, I have an incredible sweet tooth), and I’d love to hear your recommendations!
I hope you love the recipe as much as I did… I should probably go and eat an apple or something after all of those cookies!
