vegan iced oatmeal applesauce cookies

Amazing cookie.. please make it.  You will thank me.  All healthy ingredients.  So soft and chewy… but warning: try not to eat the cookie dough before you bake .. it is quite tempting.

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup heaping unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1.5 tbs water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the first 4 ingredients.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, apple sauce and vanilla.  Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix until just combined.

Using a melon baller or ice cream scoop, drop the dough into small balls onto the prepared baking sheet (about 2 inches apart).  Then flatten them out with your fingers.

Bake for 15-17 minutes (or until slightly golden brown on the edges).

For the Icing:  Whisk together the sifted powdered sugar, syrup and water until smooth.

Allow the cookies to cool prior to drizzling with the icing.

Yields 20 cookies.

Notes:

  1. Make sure your oat flour is gluten free if that is a priority to you.
  2. If you don’t have oat flour, you can make it by grinding up old fashioned oats in your food processor until they resemble flour.
  3. For the cookie ingredients, any sugar works.

…delicious happens

  1. I don’t know why this recipe got such great reviews. It is flavorless and one of the worst I’ve had.
