Apple-Oatmeal Cookies are soft, chewy cookies that are loaded with rolled oats, apples, and bittersweet chocolate chips instead of raisins. While the original recipe calls for a lot of sugar and butter, I opted for NO sugar and NO butter.
Therefore, I can have two cookies per day, guilt-free!
My parents came down to stay with us for a few weeks. Our sweet Dad, who is a Diabetic type 2, is having a difficult time getting his sugar levels down (not even his meds work).
His sugar levels have been very high lately and that frustrates him to say the least.
He can’t seem to get it down where it should be, around 100 is ideally, but it’s always up around 150 or more. Yikes!
These Apple-Oatmeal Cookies contain less sugar and less fat!
Every time they come down, basically, I take charge to cook for them both. I put Dad on a strict sugar-free diet and insist that he walks at least 30 minutes every day.
He LOVES his milk in the mornings, so I decided to switch his milk (which has 12g of sugar) to Almond milk with has Og of sugar, along with other changes in his diet.
And in a few days, I got his sugar level down to 108.
It’s a tough job – but someone gotta do it! And, I don’t mind, they are both adorable!
Apple-Oatmeal Cookies are soft, chewy, and delicious cookies, perfect for the whole family!
Dad loves these apple-oatmeal cookies. The bittersweet chocolate chips (which contains less sugar than semi-sweet) adds more than just flavor, they add some antioxidants in there as well.
They turned out really good!
Better than I imagined. I enjoy having 2 cookies with my coffee, and best of all, Dad does too!
Some Baking Tips:
Check cookies while baking to make sure they are not getting overdone on the bottoms, especially if using a dark-colored baking sheet.
Also, dark cookie sheets absorb more heat and tend to burn cookies before baking is complete.
To STORE and FREEZE…
Best to keep these cookies in a sealed container, and kept chilled. They will stay fresh for up to 4 days.
They freeze well too, for up to two weeks.
