Apple Oatmeal Cookies #AppleWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek . I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

These cake like cookies are soft and chewy, not to sweet and deliciously flavored with fresh apples and cinnamon.  It is like holding autumn in your hands.

Today is the third day of this wonderful gala that we call Apple Week.....

 Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla arranged this incredible event for you and wrangled a group of bloggers to celebrate all things apple. Apples, apples, and more apples!

Cam also arranged for sponsors to not only provide us with product to incorporate in our recipes but also to provide some amazing gifts for our readers to win.  You can learn all about this gifts and enter to win in my Welcome Post.

This recipe contains wonderful products from sponsors Bob's Red Mill, Flahavan's, Envy Apples and Taylor & Colledge.   It is adapted from this recipe found at Cooking Classy.

Before I share my recipe though, let's take a look at what the others are sharing today.......

What a great looking line-up.  So many recipes and so little time.  Luckily apples are very hardy and will last in your refrigerator for several months so you can stock up while they are in season.

I decided to leave the peel on the apple and to shred it, using my food processor, as opposed to finely dicing as called for in the original recipe.

The dough is very moist, I used a cookie scoop and then flattened them lightly with my fingers.  I ended up with 3 dozen cookies.

As with any cake like, spiced cookie these are much better on day 2 and 3.  By day 4, if they last that long, you should probably place them in the freezer and defrost as needed.  I didn't have that problem, they were gobbled up in no time.

Don't forget to go and enter to win one of the amazing prize packages from our generous sponsors.  These are wonderful products and I would love for one of my readers to be a lucky winner.

Apple Oatmeal Cookies

These cake like cookies are soft and chewy, not to sweet and deliciously flavored with fresh apples and cinnamon. It is like holding autumn in your hands.
prep time: 15 Mcook time: 15 Mtotal time: 30 M


  • 1 1/4 c. flour, I used Bob's Red Mill Organic All Purpose
  • 1 1/4 c. oatmeal, I used Flahavan's 3 minute oats
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t. vanilla paste, I used Taylor and Colledge
  • 1 apple, I used Envy,  cored, shredded and tossed with a squeeze of lemon juice 


How to cook Apple Oatmeal Cookies

  1. Whisk together the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  2. In the large bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until combined.  Mix in the egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.  
  3. With the mixer on low speed, incorporate the flour mixture into the butter mixture.  Increase speed and mix until well combined.  Lower speed and stir in the apples.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, place the dough onto baking sheets that have been lined with parchment or a silicone mat, spacing about 2" apart.  Flatten the dough lightly with clean fingers.  
  5. Place in a preheated 350* oven for about 15 minutes, until golden brown and set.
