Ingredients

  • 3 cups organic rolled oats gluten free certified if necessary
  • 3/4 cups pecan meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup local honey
  • 1/2 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

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with a non-stick silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • Add rolled oats, pecan meal, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and sea salt to a large bowl, stir to combine.
  • In separate bowl, combine applesauce, coconut sugar, honey, milk, and egg, whisk until well combined.
  • 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.
  • Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients, and gently mix together.
  • Use a 1/4 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.
  • Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
  • For a sweeter cookie, allow to cool and drizzle with homemade caramel sauce.
  • 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
