Apple and Cinnamon Cookies

apple and cinnamon cookies

These comforting sweet treats have a typically cookie texture- crunchy on the outside, with a chewy centre. The classic combination of apple and cinnamon means that these cookies are perfect comfort food and they're ideal for satisfying sweet cravings. Even those who are normally cynical of this way of eating have loved these cookies when I've made them. They're super easy to make too so great for beginners.

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, good source of fibre, anti-inflammatory

Makes 17 cookies
Store in an airtight container

Generous 1/2 cup almond butter
2/3 cup homemade apple sauce (made by boiling together two peeled, cored & chopped eating apples with water until a smooth puree is produced)
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 cups dried apple slices (the chewy kind), chopped
2 cups gluten free oats
1 & 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment or a silicone cookie sheet.
2) In a food processor, whizz the oats until they are ground to a flour-like consistency.
3) In a mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, apple sauce and maple syrup, followed by the chopped dried apple slices.
4) In a separate bowl, briefly whisk together the oat flour, cinnamon and salt using a fork until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir well to combine.
5) Use an ice-cream scoop to measure out the mixture into cookie "balls" and place on the baking tray, evenly spaced. Flatten with the back of a spoon to a cookie thickness. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until golden.
