Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookie
- baking sheet tray
- 1 cup gluten-free oatmeal
- ¾ cup almond flour
- 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp organic or extra-virgin coconut oil
- 1 large egg organic or free-range
- 1 tsp all-natural vanilla extract or ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean pulp
- ½ cup agave or raw honey
- 1 cup finely diced Fuji apples
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the first three ingredients.
- In a separate large bowl, whisk together oil, egg, vanilla, and agave or honey.
- Carefully fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture just until incorporated. Add in the apples and fold until homogenous. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 325ºF and prepare a baking sheet tray lined with parchment paper or silicone mat.
- Scoop the cookie dough into the sheet tray and flatten the top slightly.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 13 to 15 minutes, turning halfway.
- Cool the cookies down on the pan for about 10 minutes before handling.
- For softer and chewier cookies, make sure to finely dice the apples. Otherwise, larger chunks of apples will result in crunchier cookies.
- Fuji apples are sweeter than the other varieties but any red apple will work just well. However, if you prefer a tangier taste, you may substitute green apples for the red ones.
