A departure from sweet baking, because we had a lot of carrots which needed using up! These are really tasty as a snack and have fibrous oats and vitamin-rich carrots too.
50g unsalted butter
100g grated (or finely chopped using a food processor/small chopper) carrots
2 tablespoons tomato puree
2 large eggs
75g cheddar, grated
1 teaspoon of your preferred herb/spice; I love a bit of paprika myself
Optional for extra nutrition: 1 heaped teaspoon of chia seeds
Pre-heat the oven to 180° (fan)/200° (conventional).
Melt the butter in the microwave (approx. 40 seconds).
Put the melted butter, carrot, tomato puree and chia seeds (if using) into a bowl.
On top, add the oats and then break the eggs in.
Stir until everything is coated. Add the cheese and stir through.
Press down into a lined brownie baking tin.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Leave to cool and cut into pieces.
