The best part is that these apple crisp filled cookie cups are not even bad for you (as far as treats can go!).

They are treats for sure, but only sweetened with unprocessed nutritious ingredients – hello coconut sugar and maple syrup! – and made with coconut oil that’s loaded with nutrients.

But honestly, my favorite part is the way it makes your kitchen smell. So delicious and comforting!

It was a pretty dull and raining day when I made this cookie cups recipe and they instantly lifted my mood. That’s what I love about fall baking, it makes you feel all cozy! Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients

Cookie cups:

  • 1 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil liquefied (+ more to grease)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Filling:

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 apples small dice (about 2 heaping cups of diced apples)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/ 175C degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oats, almond meal, tapioca or arrowroot starch, coconut sugar, sea salt, and baking soda. Stir until well combined, then stir in coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Stir well to combine.
  3. Grease a standard muffin pan, then roll dough into 12 equal balls, and add to a muffin pan. Chill for 15-20 minutes, then shape the dough into “cups”, using a shot glass to press dough’s center. O
  4. Once all dough is shaped, bake them for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Halfway through baking, remove pan and use a shot glass to reinforce the “cups”. Let cool for 20 minutes.

  5. In the meantime, make the filling: Sautee coconut oil and diced apples over medium-high heat, stirring often. Once apples begin to soften, add maple, water, vanilla, spices, and salt.

  6.  Continue stirring often over medium heat until apples are tender, but not mushy. Once the apples look syrupy and softened, remove from heat and divide evenly among cookie cups. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes

These will soften a lot in the 2nd day because of the apples - they’re still great, but they are best eaten on the first day!
