Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. 

Grate the apple, and squeeze out the excess liquid. (This is a great snack for the kids; they love the fresh apple juice!) Mix the grated apple with the applesauce, coconut oil and maple syrup in a large bowl. 

Stir together the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. 

Scoop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet using a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Leave 2 inches between each cookie. Bake until lightly golden, 10 to 13 minutes.
