Chris's Week Thirty-Five Recipe: Giant Mutant Carrot Cookie-Scones

Jo came over yesterday and valiantly tried two new recipes. The brownies made with almond meal instead of flour were a total disaster. We tried a bit and then threw out the pan. I want you to be able to sleep nights, gentle readers, so I'm not going to post that recipe.

But the second venture, based on this recipe from Clemson University's extension service, turned out quite well. The original recipe was for monster carrot cookies, but I beefed it up a little until I achieved some sort of mutant cookie-scone.

Giant Mutant Carrot Cookie-Scones

6 T olive oil
1 c grated carrots
1 c honey
2 eggs, well-beaten
1 c raisins
2 c whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon
3 c Country Choice multigrain cereal (you could use oatmeal instead)

Mix together the olive oil, grated carrots, honey, eggs and raisins.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and multigrain cereal.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients and mix well.

Lightly oil (or spray) a large baking sheet and a #20 large scoop. Scoop generous portions of the batter onto the sheet and flatten slightly. Bake at 350F for about 15 min or until starting to brown slightly on the edges.

Would I make this recipe again? Yes! These are great with tea or for breakfast. I especially like the fact you can actually taste the honey in this recipe. Thanks to Jo for being a brave taste tester!
