Renal nutrition

Sugar and butter

For this recipe, I wanted to use classic ingredients like sugar and butter.

On the other hand, to obtain cookies that have acceptable nutritional values, I minimized as much as possible the amount of sugar and fat without compromising the taste too much.

More flavor

One trick I used in this recipe was the addition of spices to compensate for the reduced amount of sugar and I think it worked really well in this particular recipe.

To obtain reasonable nutritional values, the amount of cookie dough required to make a cookie is 2 tablespoons.

How to make apple oatmeal cookies

Like many other cookie recipes, you need to make a dry mix, a liquid mix and combine them to get your cookie dough.

To make the dry mix, you just need to combine the all-purpose flour, oats, sodium bicarbonate and spices.

For the wet mix, you need to cream butter and sugar together. Then beat the egg into the mixture and then incorporate the unsweetened applesauce, apple dice and vanilla extract.

Once ready, combine the dry mix and the wet mix to make the dough.

Then, flatten balls of 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie and bake them in the oven on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Renal variations

Dried fruits

In this recipe, you can replace the apple dice for the same amount of dried fruit. For my part, I tried with dried cranberries and it was delicious.

Spices

For these cookies, I prefer to use an apple pie spice blend.

However, you do not necessarily have the time or all the spices required at home to make this blend so I used a simplified version in this recipe.

But if you want to try, you can check out my apple pie spice recipe and use 1 teaspoon of this mixture to replace the spices listed in the recipe.

For this recipe, I used cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. But if you want a more complex flavor, I strongly suggest using 1 tsp of apple pie spices instead.

Also, you can try to make your own blend. The best spices to use with apples are cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom and clove.

Conservation

These apple oatmeal cookies can keep for about a week at room temperature.

You can also store these cookies in the freezer in a freezer bag, or any other type of airtight container, for up to 6 months.

Freeze the dough

If you plan to freeze the cookies, you may want to freeze the uncooked dough instead. This way, you can thaw the dough later and make a new batch of fresh cookies in no time.

You can store cookie dough for up to 3 months in the freezer.

To be even more effective, you can also freeze the pre-shaped cookies and cook them later directly in the oven without thawing them! Remember, however, that you will need a slightly longer cooking time.
