(Goblin is 30 months)Growing Together's 'Carrot Cake bars' post at Happy Whimsical Hearts baking link up (see button below). I decided I had to try them with Goblin. The recipe comes from The Little Things and there is a Christmas bar variation too.
Normally I would offer the UK measurements but Hublet has bought us an actual 'cup' measurer so I just used that (Sorry). So you need
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of grated carrot (which equates to two medium carrots)
2 tablespoons of raisins
2 table spoons of grated coconut
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
honey (TLT say to taste but we ended up using about 4 tablespoons)
water - we used about 1 cup
The recipe said to add water until the mixture had a thick batter consistency but this never happened. I think it may have been because I was using the cheapest oats in the world.
Goblin was not impressed. He took one mouthful, gagged and refused to try any more. Hublet taunted me by explaining that the reason his treats taste so nice is
"because of the sheer quantity of sugar and butter I use, you made the mistake of using carrots and oats!"
The Little Things and learn from a proper cook and hopefully yours will turn out better than mine.
Despite the results I'm sharing this with
