Ingredients
  • 1 large apple, peeled
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, warm enough to be liquid
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
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.
