These Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies taste really crunchy. There is a chewiness to these cookies because of Oatmeal.
Baked Oatmeal has a wonderful Chewy flavor to it. Also, the Cornstarch adds to the chewiness of these cookies. Also, these are obviously moist because of the Apples and Milk.
Cinnamon and Nutmeg are also the best companions with Apples and bring about an overall spice to these cookies!
Baking these cookies will take you just 20-30 minutes. And you will definitely enjoy them a lot.
What's there to love about these cookies?
Well, I can certainly point out something which I really loved about these cookies. They are:
- The Combination of Cinnamon and Apples. Cinnamon is a spice that pairs beautifully with Apples. Both of them make an excellent combination.
- The Dash of spices makes the cookies taste awesome. Yes, besides cinnamon there is also some nutmeg. And If you can then also add some Pumpkin Pie spice, some cloves, and some star anise powder. These warm spices will definitely make your cookies more delicious.
- You will enjoy oatmeal. I have used quick oats here. Since it is easily available in our homes. And, trust me, oats go really well in cookies. It makes your cookies crunchy, chewy and so tasty!
🍎 What Kind of Apples Should I use to make these cookies?
Well, I have gone with Red Granny Smith Apples to make them. As they have a tender texture and they taste really good. If you want to make it kind of healthier then please go with green apples.
They are low in sugar and low in carbs, and therefore a healthier choice.
As of the kind of apple you should use? Basically, you can go with anything, as long as it tastes good. I suggest granny smith or Red Delicious or Honeycrisp Apples.
So, coming back to my Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies - They are just perfect for this amazing time of the year.
