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.
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!
