Easy apple crumble cookies/Apple oat cookies

Apple dessert cookies

apple crumble cookiesIf a genie appears before me, I would ask for an instant apple tree in my backyard.  Yes, I cannot wait many years biting my nails for it to grow and yield fruits. Hopefully, this is the best wish when the ground is covered in 2 foot snow and I am longing for a warm breezy day!

I always loved apple midst all teasing that I am carried away by its glam and polished looks. Who cares…that is true too! I cannot resist biting into a juicy apple anytime. No wonder eva-girl could not resist it either! It sure tastes like a bit of paradise!

I display a tray of apples on my kitchen island to enjoy the prettiest one at the slightest provocation. Being a no mess fruit you can eat even the peel and spit out only the core, I consider this as s straightforward food. It is so versatile with endless possibility that a multitude of dishes are spun out in Fall, when they are at their magical best!


This intimidating snow is encouraging me to bake my own apple cookies!

On Friday, I was browsing through the shelves of a store when I saw a new product, apple crumble cookies. Instead of parting with some money, I took a personal challenge and tried making some. I did a bit of serious research and adapted a little and then these dessert cookies were born.

If you love apple pie like every other person and find it labourious to make it, here is a recipe for instant gratification. Made with rolled oats, apple pieces, butter, brown sugar and sweet spices this is my cookie pick for any season! When served warm, granola crumbles delightfully in this apple cookies.


• 1 big apple chopped to small pieces (I used a golden delicious apple.)
• ¼ cup butter
• 1 tsp cinnamon powder
• a generous grating of nutmeg
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• ½ cup rolled oats
• ½ cup all purpose flour
• A pinch of salt

  1. In a pan lightly dry roast oats. (I find that this improves its taste.)
  2. Grease a large baking tray and set aside.
  3. Cook chopped apple, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg powder in a heavy bottom pan until apple turns soft.
  4. Remove the pan and add brown sugar and stir to dissolve it.
  5. Mix oats, all purpose flour and salt in a bowl and add warm apple mixture.
  6. Stir until everything holds together.
  7. Take one of the measuring cups (1/4 0r 1/3 ) and grease it.
  8. Put a small ball of the mixture and pat it inside the cup to form a disk . Then turn it upside down, tap and drop cookie dough on prepared baking tray.
  9. Bake at 350° F for 20-25 minutes until sides and bottom starts to brown.
  10. Remove cookies with a spatula and cool them on a wire rack.
  11. Store it in an air tight container or eat them warm.

This recipe yields 8 large cookies (1/3 cup size). It is crunchy, soft and crumbly all in one. Call it a satisfying breakfast cookie or a great snack or a dessert! To serve as a dessert, pair it with vanilla ice cream.

adessertIf you are adventures like me, take a cookie, pipe some whipped cream and add slivers of fresh apple and indulge in an out of the world experience.

Arrange it on a platter and serve for a party. Eating dessert first, will not be an issue anymore!

acJust to get rid of my Winter blues I am sending this recipe to the lovely Fiesta-friday-56/

  3. Hey Sridevi! Lovely post, I love reading your whimsical words that just jumped out of the page. Your photos are beautiful. I will surely have to try your recipe being an apple addict myself. Thanks for such a great idea!

  6. Living in apple country, Michigan is third and sometimes second, behind Washington and New York, in apple production. So, naturally I love my apples too! Love the recipe especially since it makes a small amount, perfect for when you have a craving for something sweet and apple flavored. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday #56 🙂

    I loved apples, so much so that granny would always say she would get me married to someone who owned apple orchards… and for the fact that we lived in Banglore, made me fret as to why she wants to send me away to Kashmir 🙂 But now, am not such a big fan. Apple cookie does sound super interesting though. A good way to eat apples if not eaten as they are, don’t you think ?

      Ah, that is sad to hear that your apple love was nipped in the bud, Namrata! I feel so happy even driving near an apple orchard and wonder what kind of people own it and how they would use all those apples!


  12. I love apples as well. If you need a snack, just take an apple and it’s no fuss. And as I love oatmeal and especially oatmeal cookies as well, I’m a huge fan already. 🙂
    Happy Fiesta Friday. 🙂

    I think like you, Sridevi. When I find a product in the store, I look at the ingredients and sometimes challenge myself to create it, instead of buying it. Fan of apples too, this is a fabulous recipe!
