Meet the ultimate oatmeal apple cookies – soft, chewy, and bursting with flavor. These cookies are a hit any time of the year, but they shine brightest in the cozy days of fall when apples are at their best.

We’re big fans of using apples and applesauce in our baking adventures. Not only do they add natural sweetness, but they also keep everything moist and delicious.

Soft & Chewy Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 33 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 20



  • 1.5 cups rolled oats lightly crushed (or quick-cooking oats)
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup finely diced fresh apples + extra for topping ~1 medium gala apple


  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tablespoons melted coconut oil


  • Preheat your oven to 350ºF and grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients (except the melted coconut oil). Then, add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Finally, stir in the melted coconut oil. Your batter should be thinner than regular cookie dough, more like thick oatmeal.
  • Use a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop to drop the batter onto the baking sheet. Flatten the cookies with your hands as they won’t spread much while baking. Add diced fresh apple on top if desired.
  • Bake at 350ºF for 12-16 minutes (depending on your oven) until the bottoms start to brown. Once done, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack immediately.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle the cookies with a dusting of ground cinnamon for extra flavor. Enjoy!
