Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies


I have long been a fan of the breakfast cookie (or any cookie, really). Many of us enjoy scones or muffins for breakfast, so why not a very near cousin made more morning appropriate thanks to whole-grain flour and natural sugar

What you will need

1 1/4 cups (150 grams) diced apple chunks (from 1 small apple, cored)

2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided

1 cup (120 grams) whole-wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup (90 grams) all-purpose flour

3/4 cup (75 grams) rolled oats (not quick-cooking)

2/3 cup (70 grams) almond meal

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup (50 grams) raisins

1/3 cup (35 grams) pecans, toasted and chopped
