chai apple Oatmeal cOOkies

Nothing quite says fall like apples, cinnamon, and chai spices...so why not combine those flavors with a comforting and hearty oatmeal cookie?

I love Bravetart's Triple-Oatmeal Cookie recipe so I played around with the flavor profile and came up with these babies! Fall in one bite!! A delicious and nutty cookie that combines rolled oats, steel-cut oats, and oat flour makes for a chewy delicious cookie...not to mention the little bites of dried cinnamon apples that send it over the top!

Yields30 Servings
  cup all-purpose flour
 ¾ cup oat flour
 1 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
 1 tsp ground ginger
 ½ tsp ground cardamom
 ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
 1 ⅔ cups rolled oats
 ¼ cup steel-cut oats
 1 cup pecan pieces, toasted
 1 cup dried cinnamon apples (I purchased mine from Nuts.com)
 2 sticks unsalted butter
  cup brown sugar
 ½ cup white sugar
 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
 1 ¼ tsp baking soda
 1 tbsp vanilla extract
 1 egg, straight from the fridge
For the Topping...
 ¼ cup white sugar
 ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
 ¾ tsp ground ginger
 ½ tsp ground cardamom
  tsp ground nutmeg
Gather Ingredients...
1

Prepare the Dough...
2

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium-sized bowl sift together 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup of oat flour, 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom, and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.

3

Stir in 1 2/3 cups rolled oats, 1/4 cup steel-cut oats, 1 cup of toasted pecan pieces, and 1 cup dried cinnamon apples; set aside.

4

In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together 2 sticks of unsalted butter that are soft but still cool, 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract on low speed to moisten.

Increase speed to medium for 30 seconds and then add 1 large egg straight from the fridge and continue to beat until smooth.

5

Reduce speed back to low and add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

The dough will be very stiff.

6

Scoop 2 tablespoon portions of dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.

7

In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom, 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.

Sprinkle each ball of dough with the spiced sugar.

Bake...
8

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden around the edges, the middles might appear underdone.

Let rest for 10 minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to a cooling rack.

Enjoy the flavors of fall with a nice cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee or cider!

You can freeze the dough for later as well, just unthaw the dough before baking.
