Yield 48 cookies
If you prefer your sweets on the less-sweet side, you might just fall in love with this recipe too! Maybe with a touch of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for the humans.
You can replace the flour in this recipe with two cups of any flour you like. Oat flour is always a nice gluten-free option, and on hand since you can blitz rolled oats in your food processor to create the flour in just seconds.
- 2 apples, cored and diced or grated
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp Honey (optional but tasty)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 Egg
- Optional: 1/4 cup grated parmesan or cheddar
Preheat oven to 350º
Set your oven racks to a central position with room to use multiple trays if you like.
Wash, core, and dice or grate the apples.
To your diced apple, add the cinnamon, vanilla, honey, and coconut oil and stir thoroughly.
Add the flours and baking powder next, stirring to combine. This will resemble a crumble more than a cookie dough, don't be alarmed!
Add the milk and egg, and give it a final stir.
Drop small spoonfuls of cookie dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
You can either leave the dough in spherical form or press down lightly with a fork to create a flatter, crunchier cookie.
Bake 20 minutes, or until the tops attain some golden color and there are some crunchy bits on the edges, but the bottom isn't too browned.
