I did this recipe originally for a cooking class. What I liked most was that it used coconut flour. In my head I would love to use coconut flour more than almond flour, but it is tricky devil to work with. It can get quite dense, a bit chalky. Certain things it rocks at, like frying fish or chicken. A slight dusting goes a long way. But when it comes to baking I find it less friendly. Although I confess it is better than almond flour in cakes and cupcakes. I think the apple and the spices help it in this recipe. Tasty! Warmed up curled around a fireplace, this would be a great little Fall treat. I plan on posting a Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler Friday, so I thought: what better to prepare or segue into that than with an apple cookie?!?!
Apple Pie Cookies
- 1 cup diced apple
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (I used dad’s coconut ghee)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Sprinkle of cinnamon and Ginger
To make: saute apples in some coconut oil. Mix all the other ingredients, then toss in the apples (you may want to let them cool, I was impatient so my batter was slightly runny by placing the warm apples in the batter). Bake at at 325 for 10 minutes. Mom said these would be really good warmed up or just eat them straight from the oven.
