Oatmeal cookies with apple and carrot 


  • You can prepare in advance all ingredients measured out and ask your children to add them one by one for you.

  • Explain to your children that we need to take turns, and that everyone will have the opportunity to participate in adding ingredients.

  • Depending on the age of your children, you can invite them to peel the carrots and apples. They can grate them too.

  • This recipe doesn’t contain eggs or gluten, so they’re a great option for children with allergies.
