No Bake Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies (THM E)
If you love recipes that are easy to follow, tasty, and don't have a ton of ingredients, this one's for you!
And, I mean really, who doesn't want to enjoy an easy E cookie?!
These cookies come together in less than 5 minutes, and I'm willing to bet you have all the ingredients hanging out in your kitchen. Apples, oats, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and butter. That's it! I know, it can't possibly be that easy. Trust me, it is.
You can mix this up depending on what type of apples you have. I used a Gala, which is more sweet. You just want an apple with a nice, firm texture. Aside from that, you can pick however tart or sweet you like. I personally think a Granny Smith would work excellently here.
You mix the ingredients together over a stovetop, form into balls, press, and refrigerate.
When you're forming into balls, using a small cookie scoop (about 1 Tsp) will be your best bet. It helps you firmly pack the mixture into a ball, which makes the rolling process easier. When you roll, your hands should be slightly damp, and you don't want to handle it too much. Get it in a ball, and call it a day.
Same for when your pressing them down - dampen the glass a bit to prevent sticking, press and call it a day.
Place them in the fridge for at least one hour, or overnight. In the morning, you'll wake up to a beautiful sheet of no-bake cookies.
Since these cookies use butter, and are an E, you want to limit your cookies to 1 or 2 in a serving. The recipe makes about 18-20, depending on how tightly you pack and roll the cookies.
