Oatmeal Apple Cookies

Oatmeal Apple Cookies

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a fan of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Unfortunately those are the one kind of cookie that the boyfriend likes, so I am constantly trying to find a recipe that seems like a traditional Oatmeal Raisin sans slimy raisins, but that isn’t bland. I found one here but based on the reviews I decided to make some epic changes. I think they turned out ok, the boyfriend approves, and if they aren’t my favorite that’s ok, I don’t really need to like more cookies. So here is the new and I think improved version of Oatmeal Apple Cookies:

1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 t cinnamon
1/4 cup grated apple
1 cup diced apples

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Cream margarine with sugar, beat in egg and vanilla.In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients.With the mixer on a low speed slowly add in the the dry ingredients.Finally stir in grated apple (applesauce could probably be used, I didn’t have any so I made due with some grated apple to add moisture), diced apple and walnuts if you like (again I didn’t have any but I think they would be a nice addition, maybe 1/2 or 1 cup).I chose to put the batter in small muffin liners and bake them on a cookie sheet, but I think they would do fine dropped on parchment paper as well. I was just feeling lazy and not wanting to clean cookie sheets so the liners worked nicely. They baked for about 12 minutes, just until the tops were golden brown.The boyfriend did mention that these were better as they cooled, the apple and oatmeal developed a great texture!
