Apple Pie Cookies - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

When you’re craving a sweet dessert and can’t choose between a warming apple pie or a grab-and-go cookie, now you don’t have to!

Warming spices and apple pie inspired flavours combine to create irresistible Apple Pie Cookies that satisfy the sweet hit with just a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Ideal as a pudding or a mid morning pick-me-up! We’ve added oats for extra fibre so they’re surprisingly filling as well as tasting delicious.

You could even serve them as part of a brunch buffet instead of typical high calorie pastries: make them in advance for a perfect lazy day breakfast.

What diets are these Apple Pie Cookies suitable for?

This Apple Pie Cookies recipe is suitable for vegetarians. 

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Apple Pie Cookies recipe?

Weight Watchers’ new PersonalPoints plan calculates each individual’s Points allowance based on their unique food preferences and goals. This means we’re no longer able to offer exact WW points for our recipes.

The good news is that all of our recipes are still Weight Watchers friendly! If you have any questions about your Points budgets or you’re unsure how a certain recipe will fit into your plan, please reach out to Weight Watchers directly.

Do you need any special ingredients to make Apple Pie Cookies?

You’ll need brown granulated sweetener in this recipe. We use Sukrin Gold, but you can use any brand as long as it’s granulated rather than powdered. We’ve found Sukrin doesn’t have an artificial aftertaste like some other sweeteners do, and works really well as a sugar substitute due to the texture.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
Super easy peasy! Takes no time at all!
I used white granulated sweetener instead of brown and it tasted and looked just as good. Super easy recipe to follow and the end result is amazing!
NEW TIP
Delicious! Not too sweet.
Quick and very easy to make and delicious not too sweet. I’m following weight watchers, these came out at 1 pp, will be different for others as plans are personal but I highly recommend these for when you need something to go with a cup of tea.

How do you know when the Apple Pie Cookies are cooked?

You should cook these Apple Pie Cookies until they’re golden brown in colour. This will take around 10 minutes in the oven.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe. 

How long can you keep Apple Pie Cookies?

You can keep Apple Pie Cookies after they’ve cooled, but make sure to keep them in an airtight container. They should keep for up to 4 days. 

Can I freeze Apple Pie Cookies?

We wouldn’t recommend freezing them as the texture may change and they won’t be as tasty. As above, you can store them for a few days in an airtight container though!

I’m not a lover of any kind of artificial sweetener. Thanks!

Could these be made gluten free?

    HollyFriday 18th March 2022

    Hey Natalie, you can make these cookies suitable for gluten free diets by swapping the wholemeal flour or plain flour and rolled oats for gluten free alternatives, please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies. Hope that helps!
