Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
Cookies always make for an inexpensive and easy dessert. During the school months, I like to make cookies frequently because they make for a great addition to my kiddos lunches for school. These cookies did double duty last week. I packed them in lunches and they also enjoyed a couple for breakfast on the mornings we were running a bit late. The kiddos liked them almost as much as our Caramel Apple Pie Cookies that I shared a couple weeks ago.
Cookies loaded with apple and cinnamon always remind me of comfort food. Add in oatmeal and I feel ultimate comfort. Growing up, my morning breakfast was quite often a bowl of apple cinnamon oatmeal which was always perfect on a brisk fall morning.
These cookies are dense like a typical oatmeal cookie. The addition of the apple pieces, applesauce, and cinnamon was perfect.
These Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies are so super simple to make. I made the first batch and had my daughter make an additional two batches so I could feed the gang this week. My house smelled so yummy most of the day.
