I know what you’re thinking. Caramel apple oatmeal cookies?? In the middle of spring??
Yes, I realize I am totally like two seasons early… or late, depending on how we’re going to look at it… but I promise you these cookies are absolutely worth overlooking that minor detail.
But I promise we’ll get to them in a few minutes. First things first, let’s talk the weekend!
How was your weekend?? It was absolutely beautiful here in North Carolina so I totally took advantage of the gorgeous weather and had a ridiculously productive day on Saturday. Man it felt good! I ran lots of errands, did a little blog work, squeezed in a yoga class, cleaned my apartment, and we hosted all our friends over at our apartment before my husband’s last law school formal (seriously cannot even believe he’s graduating in a month!) We made these Grapefruit Cucumber Gin Cocktails and everyone was totally raving about them…. sooo basically you should go whip one up, like, immediately 😉
We had an absolute blast at the formal, maybe a little too much fun if you know what I mean, so the theme of Sunday was basically veg on the couch and finish binge watching Big Little Lies. And I couldn’t have been happier about that. Everyone needs a lazy Sunday once in a while, am I right??
Speaking of which, have you watched Big Little Lies yet?!? If you haven’t, you must start it! The cast is incredible, the soundtrack is one of the best things ever, and we literally can’t stop talking about it!
Whew, enough about the weekend. Let’s talk cookies!
So these cookies have been on my list to make since, well, October, but naturally I waited until March to start experimenting with a fall-inspired cookie! These cookies are entirely gluten free and are made with a combination of Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour and quick oats. I packed in lots of crisp, crunchy apple chunks, plenty of warm cinnamon, and these perfect caramel baking chips that add the best pop of sweetness.
The result— these soft and chewy, perfectly sweet Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookies! I swear, they are one of my favorite cookies I’ve EVER made. And that’s saying something, especially because they don’t contain a lick of chocolate or peanut butter!
Well that’s all for today friends, so hope you all have a fantastic Monday! Me— I’m just trying to make it through this week because Friday at 2:30 pm is officially the beginning of SPRING BREAK! I’m sure all you teachers out there feel me 😉
