Ingredients

Oatmeal Raisin Apple Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup finely diced apple (Gala, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or Braeburn all work well)

Icing

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons 2% or skim milk

Instructions

Oatmeal Raisin Apple Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place butter and sugar in the bowl of a large stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment OR in a large mixing bowl with a wooden spoon. Mix on medium speed or by hand until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add applesauce, egg, and vanilla to bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a separate medium bowl. Add to butter mixture and mix until a soft dough forms. Fold in raisins and apple chunks.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop dough out into 1-in balls. Place balls 1-2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets and very gently flatten balls slightly.
  • Bake cookies at 350F 10-12 minutes until cookies are a light golden brown. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking sheet 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Icing

  • In a small bowl, whisk powdered sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and just enough milk to achieve a thick drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies and let stand 5-10 minutes to set before serving. Enjoy!
