Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Cookies posted by Brian Brijbag
1 large (223 grams) apple
1 cup (244 grams) unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup (72 grams) cooking oil
1/4 cup (85 grams) honey
1 cup (80 grams) rolled oats
1 cup (90 grams) whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
11/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (60 grams) walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C), then spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Meanwhile, peel the apple and grate it using a fine grater or food processor. Squeeze out as much excess water from the grated apple as possible.
In a large bowl, mix the wet ingredients: applesauce, cooking oil, honey and grated apple. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined, and stir in the chopped walnuts.
Use a 1/4 cup–size measuring cup to portion out 12 medium-size cookies onto the cookie sheet. Leave about 1–2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 10–15 minutes, until cookies are golden brown.
