This time of year I am reminded of Autumn in New York when I was a kid.  My great-grandparents had beautiful apple trees and my great-grandma would bake the most amazing oatmeal cookies while my brother and I were outside climbing the apple trees picking the fruit.  Such warm and wonderful memories.

When I was looking for a new oatmeal cookie recipe to try I ran across a recipe that brought that memory together perfectly.  

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies are absolutely packed with warm flavors. They’re wonderfully chewy and moist, with little bits of apple and walnut throughout.  

These are incredible.  Chad doesn’t even like apple and he loves these apple cinnamon oatmeal cookies.  I know you will too.  For something easy and delicious try these easy air fryer oatmeal cookies. Want an amazing oatmeal? Try this cranberry walnut baked oatmeal or this Cranberry Apple Oatmeal.

Servings 24 cookies


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups old fashioned oats, do NOT use quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and diced small (I used Granny Smith)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Peel and dice the apple and toss with lemon juice. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Whisk until well mixed.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat mixture until light and creamy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, mix until combined.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, with the mixer on low. Beat just until incorporated. Last, add the walnuts and apple chunks mix to combine.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes, until cookies have reached your desired doneness. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
