I love oatmeal cookies. It’s a bit of an odd thing, considering I really do not like oatmeal! Oatmeal cookies, warm and fresh out of the oven will always be a welcomed treat for me! Honey Apple Oatmeal Cookies are a nice, healthy variation of oatmeal cookies. Warm apple, soothing honey, and comforting oatmeal makes these cookies a perfect treat for fall… or any time of the year!
Cookies are generally not the healthiest thing on the block. When you are making the switch to natural living and healthy eating, well let’s just say cookies are generally frowned upon. They aren’t really healthy so they are suddenly a “no-no”. But let’s face it, we are all human and we all want a yummy treat every now and then.

These cookies are pretty close to being completely healthy actually. Apples are fruit, oatmeal is a nice healthy grain (yes, it’d be better if it was soaked oatmeal but I haven’t mastered soaking grains for cookies yet), coconut oil is a great healthy fat although butter would be great too! I do use all purpose flour but you could definitely swap it out for whole wheat if you prefer. The only iffy ingredient is the sweetener and that’s why I use honey! Honey is obviously still a sweetener and thus not really a healthy ingredient but it’s also not as bad as say sugar. All in all, these cookies are pretty good for you and taste great!
