Apple Pie Cookies

Updated: Jun 9

Are we even surprised that I'm posting yet another sweet recipe?? I feel like at this point SUNutrition should be called Sweet SUNutrition or something lolol

I really am trying to come up with different types of recipes though. Like one of my good friends from college doesn't like chocolate (which still blows my mind) but I know everyone's different and there are people out there who don't love sweets as much as Grant and I do. SO I'm trying to add some diversity to my recipes; more savory ones, meal preppy ones, seasonal recipes, new desserts.

And that's what lead me to these: a seasonal, chocolate-free, beyond easy, cozy dessert recipe. They're perfect to bring to your next Thanksgiving get together, to work to share (or not) with your coworkers, or as an afternoon pick-me-up!


  • 1 C quick oats

  • 3/4 C (~100g) oat flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 75g red apple, finely diced

  • 2 TBSP coconut oil or butter, melted

  • 1/3 C Lakanto monk fruit maple syrup

  • A pinch of apple pie spice

  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 tsp. Stevia

  • 2 tsp. brown sugar, packed


  1. Preheat oven to 325F

  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients except the brown sugar and Stevia

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients

  4. Finely diced apple, put it in a small container, and toss it in Stevia and a dash of cinnamon until it's fully coated

  5. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together

  6. Fold the diced apple into the cookie dough

  7. With a cookie scooper, spoon, or by hand, form the dough into ~tablespoon sized balls and space them evenly onto a greased cookie sheet

  8. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top of the cookies

  9. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool, and store in an airtight container at room temperature

Macros per cookie (based on 15 cookies): 10 C | 3 F | 2 P

If you make more or less than 15 cookies and still want to know what the macros per cookie are, just divide the macros of the entire batch by the # of cookies you made. Here's the macros for the entire batch: 154.2 C | 45.2 F | 28.2 P

I honestly thought that they were going to be more carb-heavy since there's oats, flour, maple syrup, AND apples in them so I was surprised to see that there's only 10g of carbs per cookie! The macros remind me of all those oatmeal energy ball bites, so they make for a great little power snack.


  • For a more crispy, crunchy cookie, dice the apples up on the chunkier side instead of super fine

  • WW (whole wheat) flour will work fine if you don't have oat flour, just add an extra ~1/2 tsp. of cinnamon for taste

  • If you don't have or want to use Lakanto monk fruit maple syrup, you can use regular syrup, it'll just increase the carb content of the entire batch by about 50g

I hope you love these and share the love with your family and friends this holiday season! If you make them, please tag me on IG: @sunutrition_ or FB: SUNutrition so I can see it and share it - it makes my DAY seeing you guys use my recipes :)
