Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies with hidden veggies!

Because both of my kids are such picky eaters I have become a master at hiding healthy things in other foods. Right before bed both kids claim they are hungry and we were allowing them to have a bar. But when our local store raised the prices of them I realized how much we were spending on the bars. So I went to work and created "Night time cookies", as they are called in our house. And hidden in the cookie dough are veggies!!! And guess what.. they are pretty darn tasty to boot. They also freeze well too.

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups of quinoa flakes
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 potato starch flour
1/4 arrowroot flour
1 cup gluten free chocolate chips
2 cups pureed carrots

Blend the first 5 ingredients together with a hand mixer until creamy. Slowly add the other ingredients, mixing between each added item. Scoop small amounts onto a greased cookie sheet at bake for 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Allow to cool before serving.
