Thick and chewy, these updated oatmeal cookies are filled with chunks of fresh apple and walnut and redolent of cinnamon.


  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats

  • 1 Granny Smith apple*, peeled and diced 1/4″

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • 36 walnut halves, for garnish (optional)


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, then beat until combined. Set aside.
  • In a separate medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together.
  • Stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until blended.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together oats, chopped apples and walnuts, then add to the flour/butter mixture until blended.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges just start to brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.


  • * Granny Smith apples are the best for cooking because they don’t turn to mush. You can use a different kind of apple, but most won’t have the same texture as a Granny Smith apple would.
