- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 3/4 cups Rolled Oats

- 1 Egg Large
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Apple Chopped

- Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Stir in rolled oats and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together for 1 to 2 minutes or until fully combined. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract, making sure to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in the chopped apple until fully incorporated into the cookie dough.
- Using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, making sure to leave a little room between each one.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the tops of the cookies are set.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 to 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Storage Instructions: These cookies are best eaten the same day they are baked, but you may store them in an airtight container on the counter for 2 to 3 days. To Freeze The Baked Cookies: Once the cookies have cooled completely, you may store them in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. For extra reassurance that they don’t stick to each other, place a piece of parchment paper between each layer of cookies. When you’re ready to enjoy the cookies, place them on the counter for a few hours and allow them to come to room temperature. Apple: 1 medium apple will yield about 1 cup of chopped apples. You may use any kind of baking apple in these cookies, options are Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Granny Smith.
