Hallo friends! I’m comin’ at ya with another cookie recipe that sits on my Holiday Cookie Tray: Apple Oatmeal Cookies. They are chewy, they are soft, they have plenty of texture, and are seriously SO good!

The good news about these cookies: they are packed with apples and oats – all-the-good-things.
The bad news: a stick of butter.
The better news: I won’t say most, but very many, many, MANY cookie recipes use 2 sticks of butter…
So that’s that. 😊

P.S. Did I tell you that I went on a European Christmas Market Excursion two weeks ago? I DID! And it was amazing! That’s where I was inspired to share this recipe with you. Them Austrians love the flavors of Fall. Winter, too. All I could smell throughout the markets was cinnamon and apples. AND wine.

Not a bad deal. Nope… NOT at all…

Here I am at Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna – it’s a gorrrrrgeous place. Very cold, but very pretty. I also went to Paris, Reims, Budapest, Bratislava, etc… I’ll tell you more about this trip in another post. I hope you’ll enjoy it!

Back to cookies.

APPLE OATMEAL COOKIES

Shredded apples + oats are my jam.

I make these cookies throughout the year for a quick, on-the-go breakfast, but they also make an appearance during the Holidays.

I am one of those people that first looks for the sweets and then tries to find the least damaging dessert. Knowing that surely there are other people just like me, I make a ton of these Apple Oatmeal Cookies and set them right next to those adorable Peach Cookies. For balance.

The deal is that while I am seldom up for a buttery sugary treat, I am always up for a chewy yet soft apple oatmeal cookie. Always. All the dang time. Forever and Amen.

    Hi! I have to say i have made a lot of cookies for fall (because it is my most favorite season of all!) and these are by far the BEST cookies ever!! with the apple, i cut it in half and did half shredded and half cut into small cubes just cuz i like to bite into a bit of apple (kinda like replacing raisins for apples). But this recipe could not be more perfect! and not as bad as other recipes out there so THANK YOU!! will definitely be making more for family and friends! gotta keep them away from the hubby he cant stop eating them he loves them so much!!!
