Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetenend applesauce
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium apple, grated

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Whisk together the applesauce, maple syrup, and peanut butter in a bowl until smooth.
  • Add in the oats and cinnamon and mix until well combined.
  • Grate the apple using a box grater. I used the largest size hole on the grater. You may also chop the apples into small pieces!
  • Fold the grated apple into the mixture until combined.
  • Scoop out heaping tablespoon-sized portions and place them on a parchment paper lined pan. Press down on the cookies to flatten them. Make sure to flatten and shape the cookies beforehand because they will not change shape while baking.
  • Bake the cookies at 350 degrees F for 10 - 12 minutes. Let them cool completely before serving.

Notes

  • These cookies are soft and chewy. Their soft texture makes them great for baby-led weaning and toddlers!
  • I like to use Fuji apples in baking recipes. They are naturally sweet and have a nice crunch to them.
  • Make sure to flatten and shape the cookies beforehand because they will not change shape while baking.
  • Feel free to omit the maple syrup for a younger baby, the cookies just won’t be as sweet but will still have some slight sweetness from the applesauce and apple!
