Apple oatmeal cookies with cashews and dates

Wholesome apple oatmeal cookies with cashew and date chunks and cinnamon spice are the perfect fall, vegan freindly, healthy snack, breakfast or a treat.

Finding inspiration

My Instagram feed is exploding with wonderful fall treats. Apple, pumpkin, cinnamon and figs are the common fall add-ins to any dish- salads, soups or cakes. I shared my favorite butternut squash soup recipe which is a great fall meal to always have on hand. 

But you know, after lunch or dinner comes dessert, right? Well for me it always does! 🙂

Stumbling upon Natalie’s recipe from her blog Natalie’s Happy Health  for the lovliest apple cinnamon oatmeal cookies I knew I HAD TO make something simmilar.

Having said that, I decided to go with the apple and cinnamon theme, but adding in chopped dates and cashews made these cookies even tastier in my opinion! 

Serving them with a drizzle of peanut butter makes the whole humble cookie thing go over the top! 😉 I definitely recommend you try it!

Creating the recipe…

… or the story of how I gained 1 kg in a week.

How did that happen? Well I have been eating two-three-okey it was four of these amazing, apple oatmeal cookies for two weeks now and I still want some more!

Nothing beats a good old cookie or two drizzled with peanut butter and a cup of decaffeinated coffee/tea in the evening. Since I started going to college, I have to study. But the problem is I always, always have to eat when I do so. And the cookies are a life saver! 😉 The perfect study snack! Just be careful not to eat too many of them (I know, I know, … it is hard!)
