Oatmeal Apple Toffee Cookies
This is a variation of one of the cookie recipes in my new Kindle book, Holiday Cookies. I couldn’t decide which I liked better so I just put one in the book and the other on here. Win-win!
These oatmeal cookies are soft, chewy, and cake-like and they stay soft and moist for days in an airtight container because of the fresh apple. I do recommend storing them in the refrigerator if your house is very warm. You can also add chopped walnuts in addition to or instead of the toffee bits. I won’t mind at all. You can also make these with whole wheat flour for a heartier cookie.

If you are wondering, the book version has less flour and more oatmeal and makes a thinner chewy oatmeal cookie.Print

That’s great to hear, Kathya! I’m glad your kids liked them, too. I think they’re pretty healthy, for cookies. 🙂

ps IM LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR BOOK
Thanks, Danny! Hope you like the book, too! 🙂
Hilah, I just baked these cookies….and there were TERRIFIC!! We loved them. Thanks for posting this recipe. A quick question…I used light brown sugar for this recipe. Will it make a difference if I use dark brown sugar? (I have some dark sugar that I need to use up!)
So happy you enjoyed these. 🙂 There should be no problem using dark brown sugar with these – they will just have a more caramelized flavor.
Now that you mention it, I rarely see recipes that call for dark brown sugar at all anymore. That’s kind of odd, right?
