It’s back to school time again. Here’s a healthy (and easy to make) after school treat your kids will love.

½ cup butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup finely shredded carrots

1 egg

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine butter and brown sugar in a large bowl; mix together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in carrots and egg. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a bowl. Stir into carrot mixture, a little at a time, blending dough well after each addition. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet; flatten with a moistened fork. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.
