Have you ever wanted more than one dessert at the same time?
Well, I know I do. That’s why I really like my healthy & downsized version of Family Kitchen’s Apple Cookies.
They taste exactly like an apple pie, but in cookie form.
And since I’m not a huge fan of fruit pies, this is a sweet breakthrough for me.
Makes 4 good-sized cookies!
1 t vegan butter, softened
1 T stevia
1 T nondairy milk
a little egg (1/6 of one or a flax egg)
6 T white whole wheat flour
pinch of baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, Kosher salt
1 t chopped walnuts or sliced almonds
2 T apple, finely chopped
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Set aside.
-Combine all dry ingredients well (except nuts). Mix in wet ingredients, mixing in chopped apple last. At this point, if you want your nuts mixed in, do that. I pressed mine on top for garnish (and toasting).
-Roll into 4 or more balls. Press lightly onto cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown and fluffy.
If yours turn out anything like mine. These were quite fluffy–almost like small muffins.
Hmm. Apple pie muffins? Sounds like another recipe to try.
