Easy Chewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Easy Chewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies Recipe – loaded with pieces of fresh apple, oats, these cookies are chunky and taste delicious!


It is time for some easy chewy apple oatmeal cookies!

Almost like a bowl of cinnamon apple oatmeal, but a lot more delicious! These are perfect for a snack, packed with fresh apples, oats, cinnamon and require minimal time to make.

I haven’t done a lot of baking lately and I was missing home baked cookies. I almost forgot how easy to make these are. I did try the recipe with coconut oil instead of butter, but decided to share the butter version with you first. Let me know if you’d like to see the recipe using coconut oil. It produces cookies that are a little cackey and more moist that cookies made with butter.

These were gone in no time. I’m the one who ate most of them.

They are addicting. Chuncky texture and my favorite cinnamon flavor. Back in the day, I used to hate cinnamon… I don’t know why!

I love oatmeal cookies and need to make them more often. With apple season, I’ll definitely be making these again.


I used Granny Smith apples, but you can use a different kind of apples.


Why chewy? I’m a big fan of chewy and cakey cookies, not so much of thin and crisp ones. You can make these taste cakey by adjusting the amount of butter and sugar. I personally prefer using less butter with these.


This is the perfect seasonal cookie for the apple lovers out there!
