Did you make resolutions this year? Did they include eating more sensibly and getting fit? Mine sure did! Especially after all those fantastic Christmas goodies!

You probably think I’m pulling your leg but honestly I’m not. These maple apple oatmeal cookies are made with Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats, so not only are they delicious but they also give you a boost of fiber. Doesn’t that sound like just the thing you want everyday?

That’s not all the good news about these cookies. They are also dairy-free! I like to grab one as I head out to the gym or, when I have time, have friends over for coffee and a snack. They adore these cookies whenever I serve them and tell me that they taste like a cinnamon apple energy bar. No one feels guilty when they have a one, OK maybe 2, of these.

I love Quaker ® Oats and their products and always have a canister of their Old Fashioned Oats in my pantry. And, if you’ve been following me for a while, you can tell by all the deliciousness I whip up with these whole grain oats. I first learned about Quaker Oats from my mom, who taught me most of what I know about cooking, and she always had some on hand for breakfast or one of her famous baking creations. Knowing Quaker ® Oats has been around for 140 years makes it a brand I can definitely trust.

So how easy are these maple apple oatmeal cookies?  Super easy, taking only 10 minutes from prepping to oven and no mixer needed. And since you use parchment paper to line the cookie sheets, clean up is a breeze. That’s a win-win in my book.

These oatmeal cookies store for about 4-5 days in a covered container but I like to freeze mine and take them out as needed.

    02/12/2018 at 7:37 pm I absolutely love oatmeal cookies, and I love the fact yours are allergy-friendly! When my little one was diagnosed with allergies to eggs, wheat and nuts, I had no idea where to start when it came to baking, and recipes like yours would have helped so much!
