Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • 3 cups organic rolled oats, gluten free certified if necessary
  • ¾ cups pecan meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup cinnamon applesauce
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup local honey
  • ½ cup organic skim milk or milk of choice
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 cup peeled and grated RAVE apple *see directions below
  • homemade caramel sauce {optional}
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with a non-stick silicone mat or parchment paper.
  3. Add rolled oats, pecan meal, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and sea salt to a large bowl, stir to combine.
  4. In separate bowl, combine applesauce, coconut sugar, honey, milk, and egg, whisk until well combined.
  5. Once you've grated apples, remove all liquid by squeezing with a clean paper towel - do this BEFORE measuring. Add grated apples to wet ingredients and stir again to combine.
  6. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients, and gently mix together.
  7. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop the cookie mixture onto the baking sheet. I used the bottom side of measuring cup to gently flatten each cookie.
  8. Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
  9. For a sweeter cookie, allow to cool and drizzle with homemade caramel sauce.
  10. Store in and airtight container for 3-5 days.
Notes
*If you are unable to find RAVE apples, try a honey crisp or pink lady.
**Nutrition info does not include caramel sauce
