Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookie
An incredibly soft, moist, and chewy cookie recipe that’s gluten-free and weight-loss friendly. Thanks to apples and cinnamon that are not only naturally sweet but also full of antioxidants, antimicrobial, and fat-burning properties. It works great as a quick snack, a light breakfast, a meal replacement, and of course, dessert.
Servings 15 servings
- 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.
