It has been raining outside for few days. We had a Tropical Storm, but now it is over. The sun is shining again in the sunshine state. Yesterday, while Tropical Storm Debby was bringing us heavy rain and gusty winds, baking some cookies seems like a good idea.
Nothing better than a cup of fresh coffee and a delicious cookie to start the day.
The use of unsweetened applesauce creates a nice texture to these cookies without adding more sweet.
Oatmeal, coconut oil and raisin are also the key ingredients for these apple cookies.
- ½ cup quinoa flour
- ½ cup brown rice flour
- 2 cups rolled oats ( gluten-free)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
- ½ cup cane sugar
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 Granny smith apple, cored, peeled and diced finely
- ¾ cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg with coconut oil, sugar, applesauce, and vanilla extract.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
- Fold in the diced apple and raisins.
- Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto the baking sheets. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes or until the cookies are light golden in color.
- Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
