Ingredients

  • 200g (1½ packed cups) Carrots Grated
  • 125ml (½ cup) Water
  • 70g (½ cup) Grated Cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 tbsp (15ml tbsps) Oat flour

Instructions

  • Pre heat oven to 180C / 350F / Gas 4 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet
  • Mixed the carrot and water in a bowl, cover and microwave on high for 3 mins
  • Drain the carrots and then place them on a clean cloth / absorbent paper and squeeze out the liquid. (You need to get the carrots quite dry for the recipe to work)
  • Place the carrots back in the bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients.
  • Using a cookie cutter, form star shapes of the mixture straight onto the prepared baking sheet. Make each star around ½cm / ¼inch thick.
  • Bake for approx. 13 mins (until crispy on the sides)

Notes

Cheese: You can use any good melting cheese such as cheddar, mozzarella or tasty. Or you can use a mix.
Flour: Oat flour can easily be made by blending / processing oats until a flour consistency. Alternatively you can replace with another flour (such as all-purpose or almond)
Cooking carrots without a microwaveBring 1/2 cup water to boil, add the grated carrots and cook for 3 minutes. Alternatively, steam until soft.
I made 14 carrot stars, this will vary depending on the size of the cookie cutter.
