Fresh Or Dried Apples?

It’s a good question. We don’t typically eat dried fruits too often because they can spike blood sugar, but sometimes you just have to indulge a little. You can make these cookies with either dried or fresh apples, but I recommend dried or dehydrated. They taste delicious with fresh apples, but the excess water makes the cookies soften after they bake and they fall apart. So, if you plan to enjoy these apple cinnamon cookies with a group of people in one day, go ahead and use fresh apples, but if you are trying to make them last a bit longer, use dried or dehydrated apples as they keep much better.

Go Wild With The Cinnamon

Ok, I LOVE cinnamon, but I know that not everybody is quite so fanatic about it. I just love how it adds a little extra bit of sweet, without the sugar and even helps to lower blood sugar levels. There are many other benefits to consuming cinnamon, like anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and this post from Dr Axe explains more about some of the great benefits! For these reasons, I say go for it. When I make these apple cinnamon cookies I use two heaping teaspoons of cinnamon, so don’t be shy!

Some Other Ideas For Enjoying These Apple Cinnamon Cookies

For starters, these cookies are great all on their own or with a little glass of coconut milk on the side. If you’re dying to get even more creative, my favorite is to crumble the cookies over some vanilla ice cream. Then, to kick it up a notch add a little drizzle of Jem Cinnamon Maca Almond Butter on top. Holy moles…yes, that is something I say. But seriously, it is a crazy good combo!
