Recipe for Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Today is the perfect day for Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal cookies. Fall is here! It was in the 90’s yesterday and today it is only in the 40’s. I had to get out my warm clothes out this morning. I am all bundled up!

These cookies are hearty, comforting, and perfect for fall. I used applesauce to replace some of the butter, so they are also healthier than your average cookie:)
I added in all of my favorites: cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, vanilla, diced apples, oatmeal, and cinnamon chips. Our house smelled fabulous while the cookies were baking. I tried one fresh out of the oven and immediately melted. The apple cinnamon cookies were soft, wholesome, and full of fall flavors.

If you are in need of some fall comfort, try these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal cookies! Plus, an apple a day keeps the Dr. away-even in cookie form:)

Prep Time
10 minutes
3 dozen cookies

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground all-spice
  • 8 tablespoons butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 apples peeled and diced (I use Granny Smith)
  • 2 cups cinnamon chips


  1. Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and all spice. Whisk until combined. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the butters and sugar until smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add in the applesauce and mix until combined.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Stir in oats and cinnamon chips.
  4. Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto the cookie sheet. Place the cookies 2-inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. When set, transfer them to a cooling rack.
