Apple Cinnamon Oat Cookies

  • 2 C old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 C cake flour
  • 3/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 C salted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C honey crisp apple cored; cubed
  • 1/2 C chopped nuts I used walnuts, but pecans would also be great


  • 1.5 C powdered sugar
  • 3 T milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract



  • Heat oven to 350 °F.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugars. On my mixer I used my paddle attachment and set my speed to low for 30 seconds, medium for 30 seconds, and then high for 30 seconds. It came out creamed and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time.
  • Add vanilla, maple extract, cake flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and mix for one minute until fully incorporated.
  • Fold in oats until well incorporated.
  • Fold in apples until well incorporated.
  • Make ~1.5-2 T balls of dough and set on sheet pan. Make sure oats and apples are well mixed in or cookies will spread.
  • Do not overcrowd the sheet pan. I put ~6-8 cookies per sheet.
  • Cook for ~13 minutes or until dough becomes slightly crisp or until desired done-ness.***
  • Let rest for 3-5 minutes. And enjoy.... or if you want them iced, while you are waiting for them to cool, follow the below:


  • Combine all icing ingredients and stir until smooth.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle them with the icing.
  • Enjoy!


***HACK: if your cookies are not circular, while they are still warm put a round glass around them and move in a circular motion...sort of knocking the cookie gently around the inside of the glass. Due to the softness of the cookie, it will mold into a circle. This has to be done while they are piping hot or they will break.
