Most people think of christmas when they smell or taste cinnamon. I personally love cinnamon so deeply that I eat it in every season almost daily.
So these cookies can be enjoyed in summer, autumn, winter and spring because they are just awesome!
I wanted to give a bag of cookies to my grandparents who went on vacation to Italy. Since my flight is just the day before they return we won’t see each other for a long time, so I really needed to give them a little treat. They really enjoyed it and si did the rest of my family including me of course, because the box I gave them couldn’t be too big, so that they could put it in their hand luggage. That’s why there were lots of cookies left for us.
One more important thing about them, before you can start: They are sugar free and low fat, so if you can’t resist the tempting smell in the kitchen do not feel guilty. Of course: Moderation is key, but honestly: if they are still warm, they are way better than the cold version.
for about 28 big cookies
400g finely diced apples
300g whole wheat flour
1 cup stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
3 medium sized eggs
5-6 tsp butter
6g baking powder
- Cut the apples in pieces which are almost as tiny as chocolate chips. Put them in a pan and add a little bit water and one spoon of cinnamon. Heat them up until they have softened and let them cool down.
- Prepare the dough whisk together flour and baking powder. In another bowl you wish together butter, eggs and stevia. Add the flour and stir until it is incorporated.
- Gently fold in the cooled apples.
- Let the dough cool in the fridge for at least 20-30 minutes.
- To prepare the coating you need a little separate bowl where you whisk together some ore stevia and cinnamon.
- Now you make 28 little balls and roll them around in the coating until they are completely covered. Then you place them on a prepared baking trail and press them so that you get cookies which are not taller than 1 cm.
- Bake them at 350 F (190 C) for about 15 minutes.
