Healthy Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Healthy Apple Oatmeal Cookies

These Healthy Apple Oatmeal Cookies are a wonderful low-calorie treat! They’re full of oatmeal, apples, and cinnamon! They make for a delicious snack that curbs your sweet tooth while not being too sugary. They’re awesome for breakfast, a quick on the go snack, or anytime! You can’t go wrong with cookies that are not only tasty but healthy too!

I love experimenting with creating healthier versions of cookies because I have a big sweet tooth, but I wouldn’t say I like to eat sugary sweet all of the time. Fruits are excellent to get your sugar craving down, but healthy cookies are even better! I’ve been making Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and these apple cookies a lot recently because they are easy to put together and taste so good! These Apple Cookies are a great way to get some fiber in your diet because of the oatmeal, apples, and whole wheat flour. The fiber in our diets is essential for gut health and to keep our digestion moving usually. Why not get your fiber with cookies?!

Healthy Apple Oatmeal Cookies Ingredients

For these cookies, you are going to need these essential ingredients.

If you have any allergies or aversions to gluten, nuts, or are cutting out sugar, you can customize this recipe to your needs! For a gluten-free version, you can swap the whole wheat flour with gluten-free baking flour and quick oats with gluten-free oats. If you have a nut allergy, you can use coconut milk or oat milk in place of almond milk. If you’re avoiding any processed sugar, you can replace it with xylitol or swerve. All of these are quick substitutions that will still make for a great tasting cookie!

    These look like the perfect cookies for this time of year. I’ll have to make some soon! Do you recommend a certain type of apple?
