  • 2 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed - light or dark ok
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup finely diced apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Sparkling white sugar optional


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir oats, flour, baking soda, salt, apple pie spice, and cinnamon together. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk butter, applesauce, and sugars together until combined. 
  • Whisk in the egg and vanilla until well-combined. 
  • Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined. 
  • Fold in the apples and nuts. The cookie dough will feel thick and maybe even a little dry. 
  • Using a medium cookie scoop (1.5 tablespoon), scoop cookie dough, and place 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. 
  • Sprinkle with sparkling sugar, if using.
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until set and lightly browned at the edges.
  • Let cool 5-10 minutes on baking sheet, and then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.
