Junior chefs made apple oat cookies this week in class. These cookies are light and fluffy. The sweetness of the apple the slight nuttiness and crunch from the browned oats, and the hint of cinnamon make for a warming tasty treat. Add a drizzle of glaze over the top for a classic oat cookie look and to sweeten the deal just that much more.They’re great packed in a lunchbox, shared with friends, or paired with tea or coffee.
