This is a variation on my favorite Oatmeal Cookie. I love them with Reese’s Pieces and Peanut Butter Chips, but sometimes you need to try something a little different, and I’m so glad I did. I saw these Cinnamon Chips at Target in the fall baking aisle, and immediately knew what I needed to bake with them. I also buy the Simply Balanced cinnamon dried apples. You don’t want the crunchy freeze dried apples, you want the chewy apples, chopped up into raisin-sized pieces. These are quick and easy and perfect for having with some hot apple cider.
Apple Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal CookiesCourse: DessertDifficulty: Easy
3 cups Quick Cooking Oats (for best results use quick instead of Old Fashioned)
2 cups Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1 cup Butter, softened
2 Large Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
3/4 cup Dried Apples, chopped into raisin-sized pieces
3/4 cup Cinnamon Chips
- Combine all ingredients except flour, dried apples, and cinnamon chips into bowl (or bowl of mixer). Mix at low speed, scraping side of bowl until all ingredients are well incorporated and fluffy.
- Stir in flour, careful to beat at low speed. After flour is incorporated, add candy and peanut butter chips. Mix until well incorporated.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- If desired, line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Grease cookie sheets or parchment (or spray with cooking spray lightly). Drop be rounded teaspoons (or use small cookie scoop). Bake 8-12 minutes until edges are lightly browned. Let stand for 2-3 minutes and remove from cookie sheets to cool.
- These will keep well in an airtight container. You may also make and shape the dough and freeze. This allows you to bake off as many as needed and keep them tasting as fresh as possible.
