Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or butter, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 large SweeTango apple, peeled, cored and shredded
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons almond milk
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat together coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and egg until smooth and creamy. Fold in shredded apple with wooden spoon. 

  4. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined and a dough forms. Fold in pecans, if using. Place dough in fridge for 10-15 minutes.

  5. Use a medium cookie scoop to place cookie dough on a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown around the edges. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough.

  6. While the cookies cool, make the glaze by mixing peanut butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and almond milk together in a medium bowl. The glaze should be drippy enough to glaze over cookies. Add more almond milk if necessary.

Recipe Notes

Nutrition does not include pecans.

TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE: Try using oat flour instead of whole wheat flour.

TO MAKE VEGAN: Use a flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water). You may need to add more flour to form a nice dough.
