Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the quick oats, flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla.
  4. Add the wet into the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined. Fold in the diced apples.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop or tablespoons, drop rounded cookie batter about 2″ apart onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Let cookies cool completely before filling.

To make the filling:

  1. Using an electric mixer, combine the peanut butter and powdered sugar. Add the milk or cream, 1 tablespoon at a time until you have a spreadable consistency.

Notes

The cookies are best enjoyed the day of. Due to the natural juices from the apples, the cookies tend to get moist the day after.
