Chocolatey Harvest Apple Oatmeal cookies

What better way to bring in the cozy blankets and spiced teas than with the perfect warm and crisp apple scent of this fall favorite?Mixed with ooey-gooey *organic chocolate candies and even a hint of toasted coconut, These cookies will fill your house and belly with all the perfect autumn vibes. 

*Plus it just wouldn’t be a “me recipe” if I didn’t add a healthy little spin on things, so we’re going to stick to the not so basic, basics in this recipe. Shall I elaborate?

First off, these cookies are unimaginably filling. I can eat one or two cookies on an empty stomach with a glass of water and literally be satisfied for hours, how your wondering? well the “secret” is the totally fiber-rich, Whole grain oats mixed with the packed punch of the coconut oil. If you are at all fimiliar with the wonders of coconut oil and all its glory, then you know how well just a small spoonful of the stuff is enough to help supress your appetite and keep you full for a good bit of time.


These babies don’t take long to get going either, they only take about 5-7 minutes in my oven, though other oven cook times vary ofcorse. I’d say no more than 10minutes

 
Honestly the parchment paper isn’t even necessary for the “stick factor” because there is none.  There’s enough coconut oil in them to prevent any of that nonsense. So if you wish, sling em right on that serving dish. 

This was my first time making these and honestly I sort of just came up with the ingredients while rummaging through my cabinets. -Point being, you can easily tweak this recipe to be your own by changing the “goodies” you throw in. 

  

Next batch around, I’m thinking of adding in some actual diced cinnamon spiced apples and possibly caramels. Like I said the possibilities are endless.
