OK, so It’s official. I’m totally hooked on Girls. Like TOTALLY!  I’ve never watched one single episode while it was on TV. Never! I was not even remotely interested. And then recently the re-runs started on TV, ’cause the new season is starting in February (yeeey! <– screaming quietly ). And there I was one afternoon, caught watching one episode purely out of boredom. But the strange thing happened that afternoon. I liked that one episode…. and there was, of course, that gorgeous/sexy Adam aka Kylo Ren.   So, anyway, the next day I decided to watch next episode of Girls re-runs. And then the next day another episode. And here I am … HOOKED!

So the other day, I decide I’m going to make some dessert. Something sweet, to complement my afternoon tea while watching my favorite show. I was thinking of Apple Carrot Muffins or Carrot Cake, but in my head, I kinda envisioned COOKIES.  But not some crumbly cookies, yet soft, chewy and full of warm winter spices cookies. And what I envision, I make!  That day, when Girls started on TV, next to me were these beautiful and fragrant, freshly baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies. The atmosphere was exactly how I’ve imagined – cozy couch, blanket, quiet house (I make my boys go out for a walk haha ), warm cup of tea, cookies… and off course, Girls. Perfect!

The atmosphere was sooo good and cookies were sooo PERFECT that later on I decided to share all that on my blog (you know when you sometimes feel so good and you just have to tell that to somebody ). Ok, let me tell you then about these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies. These cookies are so incredibly soft and chewy, sweet and full of warm winter flavors. They are literally contagious. You can’t just eat one and stop.  The main ingredient is, of course, the apple. I used fresh organic Honeycrisp, but you can use any type of sweet and juicy apple. For making these cookies I also used super healthy oats full of high-quality dietary fibers and whole wheat flour. I added coconut oil instead of butter and I used honey to sweeten up cookies. Also, I added some dried cranberries which gave a bit sourness to every sweet cookie bite. I spiced these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies with warm spices – super healthy Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

The second bunch I’ve prepared for photo shooting I had to hide from my hungry, healthy eaters… even from myself.

  1. Those cookies look so good. And with no sugar added and getting baked in 20 mins, it’s all mothers joy. I love the Apple and cinnamon pairing

  2. These cookies sound delicious! I’ve never watched Girls, and I hardly ever make cookies… but as soon as we get a snow day- cookies are happening! I love that these don’t have added sugar!

  3. I love the idea of no sugar and whole wheat.. ! Such wonderful warm flavors of cinnamon. I can almost smell them. Thanks

  4. These cookies looks absolutely chewy and delicious. They are bursting with flavors and I love the combination of apple cinnamon, it so classic, yet fabulous!

  5. These cookies tick all the boxes. I really enjoy cookies containing oats. It is like the oats provide a moist finished product to whatever they are added to.

  6. I love that these are so healthy and good for you, while containing no refined sugars! AND they look like that? I can only imagine the taste. Guess I’ll be making them to try for myself!

  7. I love chewy cinnamon cookies, and the apple cinnamon flavor sounds amazing! We definitely do not allow any xylitol in our house because it is so toxic to dogs (not that she generally gets into food, but better safe than sorry), but I bet they would be delicious even without the glaze.

    • Thanks Julie 🙂 Yes I know about xylitol and its effect on animals. I use xylitol rarely, mostly as replacement for powdered white sugar that I don’t consume. Xylitol is good for making white glazes but cookies are quite tasty even without it 😉

  8. These look so soft and scrumptious! They remind me of some cookies that I get at a local speciality grocery store. They are so good – I can’t wait to give your version a try!

  9. I absolutely love chewy cookies and this one with no artificial sweetener is a definite winner. The whole wheat flour adds so much of earthiness in the cookies and I love that flavor. Gorgeous clicks as well!

  10. Natalie, these cookies look amazing! That glaze is making drool like crazy. Alright, it’s official, I need a dozen of these to make my weekend truly complete. P.S. So cool that you made these low calories and refined sugar free. That means I can have a dozen, right? 😉 Pinned!

  11. Just one look at your oatmeal cookies and I am convinced they are delicious! They look so moist and the fact that it’s sugar-free makes me want to bake a huge batch right now!

  12. Now this is my kind of breakfast cookie. Who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast? Apples and oats…sounds like a plan to me.

  13. Sounds like the perfect cozy afternoon with delicious and good for you cookies! It really sounds like a dream!!! Love the fact that they don’t contain refined sugar

  14. Okay, seriously, this recipe looks like the best ever. I love Girls too! I actually didn’t like it at first.. But after probably episode 4 I was hooked. From then on, I would sit my happy butt down Sunday nights with a glass of wine and yep… COOKIES. So again, best recipe ever. I’m TOTALLY making these for the premiere! Delicious!

  15. Soft and chewy cookies are the best! I love all kinds of cookies, while my husband is partial to chocolate chip. I’ll bet I could convince him to try these, they look so appealing! Apples, cinnamon, chewy, gooey … oh yea!

    • The best indeed! My hubby was sceptical too about these apple and cinnamon cookies, he’s a fan of choco cookies as well. But than he try one, and next thing you know he ate all plate hahah

  16. I have to look for Girls never watched the episodes. These cookies my kind as it has apple, oatmeal also like the way you spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. Next time when you make tea and cookie you can give an invitation I am ready to visit you.

  17. I don’t think I’ve ever tried cookies like these. They look amazing! I especially like the glaze.

  18. Yum!! These look so soft and chewy. I love it!

  19. These remind me of a great breakfast but still have me feeling like I am indulging in dessert instead. My youngest son loves oatmeal and I was buying those breakfast cookies for him. I think he would definitely prefer these!!

  20. I love the cinnamon flavor, Natalie. These cookies must be very delicious!
