  3. Hi Kit, I've used dried fruity in cookies but haven't tried with fresh fruit. These apple oatmeal cookies sure look yummy!

  4. won't the apples make the cookies soft? looks delicious and healthy!

    1. Hi Jeannie,
      Thanks for your kind words . No these cookies are not that soft but chewy . ;)

  5. It must be a chewy fruity variation of oatmeal cookies :)

  6. Kit, this is something healthy and yet so yummy! Super like!

  7. Hi Kit,

    Do you have to pack lunch for your kids? I remember buying food from the tuck shop at school but the schools in Australia don't sell food daily and so I have to pack lunch and snacks for my boy :D

    Nice cookies! I'm sure that your kids love them as much as I do :D


    1. Hi Zoe,
      No, my sons don't pack lunch for school as we're staying not far , about 10 mins drive . But they like to pack snacks to school , that is why I bake 3 times a week ! LOL

  8. I'm eyeing the carrot cookie recipe from one of the magazines that I borrowed from the lib , maybe I should sub some apples in it :D

  9. Hi Kit,
    I bet this cookies are packed with goodness in it.
    Does this cookies have the apple aroma after baked?
    I am eager to try this out soon.
