We have sort of got into a bit of a routine with our weekends. Husband will take the kids out in the morning to the park or for a scoot while I test recipes and work on my blog. When I first made these delicious Apple Oat Cookies the family arrived home to these still warm from the oven, the house fragrant with apple and spice, and they proceeded to enjoy all of the delicious cookies in a single sitting. I may have had two or three. For official work purposes obviously.
I know why they adored these so much. They are absolutely bursting with flavour – every mouthful has bits of apple and cinnamon. They are truly a taste sensation. But I think the best thing about these cookies is that they are sweetened only with fruit. So these Apple Oat Cookies really are a perfect addition to the lunchbox.
Have you tried Apple Oat Cookies that have no added sugar before? If not you will love the switch to these Apple Oat Cookies. Don’t think that these cookies are tasteless. Na-ah there is so much flavour in these cookies.
And there are is A LOT of fruit in these cookies. Banana, apple and sultanas sweeten these delightful cookies and, honestly, I just could not get enough. And I can’t wait to get these into school lunches this week! Want other kid friendly cookies for school lunches? Check out my Carrot Oat Cookies. Or are you looking for more apple based recipes?
