This apple cookies recipe is great for those of you who are trying to cut processed sugars out of your diet. Fruits are an absolutely fantastic way to get some natural sweetness into your desserts.

You are likely to be overwhelmed by the natural sweetness and slightly sour flavor of the apples when you bite into the cookies. If you are looking for a neutrally-sweet snack, this one is for you. In this apple cookies recipe, we are going to guide you through the process of making this delicious snack. If you want to add more texture or dimensions in the flavor of your cookies, simply add more fruits. For instance, dates and raisins can give these cookies an additional chewiness to each bite. Besides raisins and dates, dried oranges also go well with these apple cookies. You can also check out our list of sugar-free dessert recipes for healthy desserts you can try.

Don’t worry if you don’t have basic experience in baking. Just follow these easy steps and you’re good to go. Sprinkle some more cinnamon on top of your cookie for a fragrant aroma. Lastly, serve this with a warm beverage to have that chill, late afternoon vibe. We recommend some Assam black tea — that goes perfect with these apple cookies. If you want more fruit-flavored cookies, try our Orange Pecan Butter Cookies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there other ingredients I can use instead of honey?

Tagatose is a widely used alternative for sugar. For those who are not familiar with it, tagatose is an artificial sweetener that is derived from lactose. Tagatose is the choice for diabetics because it has no effects on blood glucose and insulin as well as not contributing carbs. 1 teaspoon of tagatose is enough to make this cookie recipe sweet.

How can I make my apple cookies crunchier?

There are a handful of techniques to make cookies crunchy (or crunchier) and it depends on the baker how she wants it. We recommend lowering the temperature when you’re baking. In this case, instead of 350 degrees, bake your cookies at 310. Lowering the temperature will allow the cookie to spread first before rising resulting in crunchier sides. Another way to make cookies crunchy is by not using eggs. Eggs provide the moisture in cookies and eliminating it from the ingredients will ensure a crunchy result.



Sweet treats don't always have to mean breaking your diet. These sugarless apple cookies will fit right into a strict diet since they are free from processed sugars. Stop yourself from reaching for a slice of apple pie and satiate your cravings with this recipe instead.
