10 steps

  • Preheat the oven to broil.

  • Combine the apples, olive oil, ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon in a mixing bowl.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Spread the apple mixture over the pan. Bake for 5 minutes. Then set aside to cool.

  • Lower the oven temperature to 350°F (180°C).

  • Combine the date puree, applesauce and egg.

  • Add the apple juice, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  • Mix in the flours, ground flaxseeds, raisins and the cooled apple mixture from the first section until combined.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat – otherwise, everything will stick.

  • Drop spoonfuls of dough to create beautifully round energy cookies.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes. Yummy!

History

A soft, tender and wholesome energy cookie with an absolutely heavenly apple-cinnamon taste, this recipe has NO ADDED SUGAR and is sweetened with date puree. A dessert, snack or even breakfast energy cookie you can enjoy at any hour of the day, evening or night. An original autumnal creation reminiscent of a bona fide apple pie. And I’ve called it the Appley Ever After.

Halfway between a muffin top and a cookie, these treats are as soft and tender as they are delicious. Good for you as well? Do you really need to ask?! This creation is the quintessence of an excellent source of energy.

Source of fibre and “OMG, I’m freakin’ out”!

By the way, these cookies taste even better after a family outing spent apple picking. Hey, now there’s a great idea for a fun activity. Savour the moment!
