Apple and cinnamon cookies

I love this time of year when the clocks have changed, the days are lighter for longer and the sun is starting to shine. This is when I actually enjoy walking my dog along the coastal paths and having a coffee and snack on the beach. I decided I needed to make some tasty treats and made these amazing moist apple and cinnamon cookies. They are great to have with a coffee after a walk or as a snack at any time of the day. A lovely tasty treat which is gluten and sugar free!

Ingredients

3 Large apples, cored and cut into quarters
1 Cup of flaked almonds
1 Tablespoon of melted coconut oil
6 Pitted dates
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
1 Cup of finely shredded coconut
A pinch of salt (this is optional)
3 Large eggs

Method

1. Preheat the oven on 180C, 350F, Gas 4
2. Put apples in the food processor and shred
3. Add the almonds, coconut oil, cinnamon,dates and vanilla extract and pulse
4. Pour the mixture into a bowl, add the salt and eggs, stir together
5. Scoop or spoon onto a baking sheet and flatten down the dough into a cookie shape
6. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, turning the tray half way through

Remove and place on a cooling rack….

I hope you enjoy these lovely treats as much as I do, so easy to make takes about 10 minutes preparation time!!

  1. These look great as a post work out treat. How long do you think they will last (assuming that you don’t eat them all in one sitting!!!)?

    1. Hi Anna
      Thank you for asking that question, I’m sure lots of people are wondering the same. I tend to store mine in an airtight container in the fridge, they will normally last up to 5 days, if not eaten before!! Also these would make a great post work out snack, something quick to grab and go, this is definitely my kind of food.
