Apple + Granola Cookies

Cookies are the classic sweet treat!! You can literally throw anything into a cookie from chocolate to nuts to dried fruit to cereal! And there are hundreds of different varieties. So why not apples? These are a fun, fall recipe and are a hit with the kids! Trust me, these are kid-tasted and kid-approved. They were asking for more!! And when you throw in our Goin' Nuts granola, you're going to fill these cookies with oats, nuts, and all kinds of nutritious, granola-y goodness!! So feel good about stuffing your mouth and feeding these to the fam!

I love cooking and baking and experimenting with new recipes (if that isn't obvious!). The downside is that I'm left with way too much sweet and tasty goodness. Not necessarily a bad thing, except that if it's in the house I will eat it!! And if I'm being honest, I don't need to eat two dozen cookies! So if you're left in a similar predicament, surprise your neighbors or co-workers with cookies! You'll be the new favorite and they're sure to love you forever!

These cookies are pretty darn tasty without the icing, which is how I prefer them! But if you like a little extra sweet, the icing is super easy to make and adds a beautiful touch! 

Apple + Granola Cookies

Grab it!
1/4 cup organic brown sugar + 1 tbsp

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup finely chopped apples
3/4 cup Goin' Nuts granola

icing (optional)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp water (or lemon juice)

Bake it!
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine brown sugar and softened butter. Beat until light and fluffy. Add milk and egg. Combine until mixed well.
3. Add flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well.
4. Fold in apples and granola.
5. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
6. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
