Healthy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

One of the best things about fall is it opens the door to all sorts of fun seasonal recipes. PSL is everywhere you turn paired with boots, leggings and lightweight sweaters that coincide with perfect 75-80 degree weather (well, if you are in Texas that is). 🍂 Pumpkin spice and everything nice is great, but we are also obsessed with the fall flavors cinnamon and apple! 🍎 With that said, what if I told you that we found a way to package the flavors of apple, cinnamon and oatmeal into a convenient “on the go” format!? I know…that’s what we said! It’s genius! 🤗

This post features one of our seasonal favorites, Healthy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies. It allows you to basically eat your morning oatmeal (or apple pie) in cookie form. Yep…you’re welcome. 🙂 It’s delicious, light, and most importantly, healthy! So, go ahead and eat 2-3 of these without feeling so guilty! 😉

Cheers to fall, and the beginning of a delicious season!

What You Need

Dry Ingredients:

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup instant (minute) oats (the canister kind and not in the small packages)

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I may have added a bit more to give it some extra spice)

1/4 tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. coconut oil (melted) or you can substitute unsalted butter

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 agave syrup

1 cup diced apples (red for a sweeter taste or green for a tangy taste) *I would dice these as small as you can

Step by Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 325.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  3. In one bowl mix together your dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon).
  4. In another bowl mix together your wet ingredients (melted oil/butter, egg, vanilla, agave).
  5. Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Fold in your diced apples until they are just incorporated.
  7. Chill the dough in the fridge for about 30-45 minutes to firm up a bit
  8. Drop tablespoon size balls onto your baking sheet and flatten slightly (these will not spread much at all once in the oven).
  9. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Don’t over bake or they will come out too dry. So just when they are set remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
