One of our lovely food and drink sub-editors, Sophie Rees Rumney, creates a healthy snack that can be consumed with friends or just annihilated within minutes.

I’ve been hearing about a profusion of diet crazes a lot recently, and although I wanted to try them all out and join in the great fun that I was clearly missing out on, I didn’t have the willpower. Instead I went on the seafood diet, a great culinary invention, where you simply see food and you eat it. I continued to eat all the delicious food that I wanted to, but all the while trying to find healthy alternatives.

Luckily, our wonderful food correspondent Fanny Maquinghen introduced me to the carrot cookie, a sweet treat packed with a beneficial ingredient Beta-Carotene. The organic chemical compound Beta-Carotene provides us with vitamin A when it is converted in our liver, prooving that these cookies are both tasty and healthy. So just follow this easy-peesy lime juice squeezy recipe and make yourself something lovely.
