Have you been out to the apple orchard yet? Well, here's a super yummy recipe to use up some of those apples.
Preheat your oven to 350F
1.5 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup golden brown sugar
1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup fresh applesauce
splash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon (optional)
1/2 cup roasted sliced or slivered almonds
1/4 cup chopped apple
Mix your dry ingredients, then add your melted butter, apple sauce, egg and vanilla. If you find that the batter is too wet, sprinkle in more oats as needed. Add in your cinnamon, chopped apple and almonds and mix just to combine. Be sure not to over mix here or your cookies will become gummy.
Bake for 11-12 minutes, until golden brown and your house smells like apple pie.
Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack.
I love to have these cookies out for guests, and they make great wholesome snacks for little ones!
