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.

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.

You can find Sukrin Gold brown granulated sweetener in some supermarkets, or on Amazon!

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!
