The batter for these Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookies is a little bit sticky, so they can be a bit tricky to drop onto a baking sheet. Here are some tips!

Cookie Dough Tips

  • Make 1 1/2 inch dough balls.
  • Use two spoons to drop the batter onto the cookie sheet: one to scoop, one to scrape the scoop of dough onto the baking sheet. Then lightly shape into a ball.
  • Or use a cookie scoop.
  • The method I prefer is to just use my hands to roll the dough into balls…this is a bit stickier, but I make it work.
  • Make sure to lightly press the dough balls down.
  • The sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar!

Don’t forget to sprinkle the cookie dough balls with cinnamon and sugar before they go into the oven! This makes a nice little crunch on the tops!

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookie Recipe Tips

  • Apples: Any type of apple will work in these cookies. Just make sure to remove the peels first, and chop the apples into small pieces.
  • Oats: I use quick oats for these cookies. You can use old fashioned rolled oats, but they create a different texture. Cookies with the old fashioned oats make a chunkier cookie, and cookies with the instant oats make a more chewy cookie.
  • Optional Ingredients:  You can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts, like pecans, to these cookies if you wish!
  • Storage:  Store in an airtight container to keep them soft.
  • Freezing:  These cookies freeze well. Store them in airtight containers or ziplock bags in the freezer for up to 3 months.
