  • ½ cup oat flour
  • ½ cup brown rice flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour/starch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup walnut oil
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 flax egg 1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water, mix and let sit about 5 min
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 small/medium red apple unpeeled - finely diced and tossed with a bit of cinnamon and sugar
  • ¾ cup rolled oats quick oats would work too
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 375-degrees
  2. In a mixing bowl combine: flours, starch, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and set aside.
  3. In a second bowl combine oil, sugar, flax egg, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the liquid into the dry mix and mix together until well combined. Next, add in oats, apples and walnuts and fold together.
  5. On a nonstick cookie sheet, drop a heaping tablespoon of the mix. Really press the mix into your tablespoon so that it forms a nice compact ball.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden.


For an extra crunchy top, I like to pop them under the broiler for a minute. Since there is fresh apple in these, by nature, the cookies will get softer each day they are stored.

*If you're not gluten free or vegan, all-purpose flour and a regular egg can be used.
