Mixes for the win

I saw someone do this with a brownie mix so I thought I’d use up my jars I am saving in case of hard times and make mixes of the things I like to bake all the time.

I read that it is wise to save plastic and glass containers in case of need in times of trouble so I hate to get rid of them, but they sure do pile up.

These mixes are so handy to use and not too hard to make multiples at one time. Yay ! ! !



Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

I loved making these cookies today and they turned out great – – – – –

Carrot oatmeal Cookies

2 eggs (or substitute ground flax with some water)

Mix then combine with above:
1 c. flour
1/2 c. w.w. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Stir in:
1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. carrots, grated fine
1 c. raisins

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.

p.s. I see I forgot the 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, but they turned out fine : )
