  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 and ¾ cups of old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup of softened unsalted butter
  • ½ cup of packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of finely chopped apple


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and then add the old-fashioned rolled oats. Set the mixture aside.
  3. Using a mixer, beat together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy and well combined, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract, continuing to mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Gently fold in the finely chopped apple, ensuring it’s evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  5. Use a tablespoon cookie scoop to portion out balls of the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space between each for spreading.
  6. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tops are set and lightly golden.
  7. Once done, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for 5 to 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy your freshly baked spiced apple oatmeal cookies with a glass of cold milk or your favorite beverage!

These cookies are a delightful blend of comforting spices and sweet apple chunks, making them a perfect treat for any occasion.
