One of the most popular recipes I’ve ever published here on the blog is my Apple Cinnamon Bread so I thought it would be fun to create a cookie inspired by it. I took a basic oatmeal cookie recipe and gave it an apple twist to make this delicious Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookie recipe.

What I love about these cookies: like my chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies, these apple oatmeal cookies are thick and hearty and have just the right amount of sweetness, they almost taste like a breakfast cookie rather than a dessert cookie. I’ve toyed with adding extra sugar but it always thins the cookie so it spreads more and I prefer the thick oatmeal texture. The apples are soft and juicy inside and the flavor just screams autumn to me!

  1. Where does the rest of the cinnamon go? It says two and a half teaspoons of cinnamon separated. You said to put one teaspoon in with the sugar and apples, but you never said what to do with the other teaspoon and a half… Just wondering?

  2. These sound delicious, I can’t wait to give them a try. These could definitely be breakfast cookies in my book.
