3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider
2 Tbsp. oil (light olive, canola, or vegetable)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 cup apple, finely chopped
1 cup organic powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To a bowl, add brown sugar, apple cider, oil, and vanilla. Stir well. Add oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and cloves. Stir until well combined. Add apple, and stir in. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a cookie pan, and press down lightly. Bake 16-18 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. To make the glaze: put the powdered sugar in a bowl, and add apple cider, and cinnamon. Stir until completely combined. Drizzle over the cooled cookies. Let the cookies sit until the drizzle hardens. Store in an air-tight container. Makes one dozen cookies.

If you make this or any of my other recipes, I’d love it if you shared a photo of it with me on Instagram!

  1. Please, quick question!
    What food processor do you recomend??
    My Kitchen Aid one I got as a gift recently broke down 😩…I am so ready to move on now and get a new one. But my budget is up to $40. I don’t want a mini one, I want something to do same things you do (nut butter, doughs, creamy thins, etc.).
    Thabk you very much!!

    1. I use a blender to grind oats into oat flour, but other than that, I don’t think too many of my recipes use a blender or food processor. The blender I have is a really basic one from Target- I think the brand is Oster.

    2. I honestly don’t have a working food processor right now- mine also broke, and I guess I use a blender more than a food processor. Sorry, I don’t really have a good recommendation – I hope you can find one you like!

    1. Sorry, I didn’t test replacements, but you could probably use about the same amount of an all-purpose gluten-free flour, or about 1 1/4 cup all-purpose wheat flour– if you aren’t gluten-free. I hope you can make these work for you.

    1. The So Delicious cheese was ok- I thought it was a little weird, but it might be better than Daiya. I think it really depends on personal preference when it comes to vegan cheeses though.

      Is the So delicious cheese good? My-Go to is Daiya.
      Nice to see a picture of you. Remember when I asked you if you are f or m. 😩

    3. I don’t have plans to develop a recipe for those right now, but I do have a waffle recipe here on my channel that you could probably add some sweet potato and spices to. Sorry– I’ll share a recipe if I ever decide to make them though. 🙂
