A quick trip to the library last night found me Deceptively Delicious, which I couldn't wait to bring home and leaf through. Sneaking veggies into food definately appeals to my devious nature. So far it looks good enough that I'm going to order a copy of my own. The Mister (totally cookiehound) thought we should try out the oatmeal raisin cookies as our first recipe - big surprise there! These particular cookies called for 1/2 cup zucchini puree along with 1/2 cup banana puree:
They turned out very yummy and moist - The Mister thought they tasted like banana bread cookies:
Pita Pocket and I liked them as well. Short Pants decided not to try any, which didn't really surprise us. Most of the time when we bake cookies (even regular old chocolate chip) he ends up not eating them. I'm eager to try some of the "main dish" meals in this one. We don't have any trouble getting Short Pants to eat zucchini bread or banana muffins, etc., so I'm interested to see what he's going to think of noodles that have a sweet potato puree mixed in! He looked through the book with me and picked out several items that he'd like to try - one was "pink pancakes" which are made with beet puree. Should definately be interesting, to say the least!
