Welcome to September’s Secret Recipe Club Group B reveal. I normally post with Group D, but due to a cancellation I was given the fun opportunity of posting TWO times this month. Not a problem since I’m always on the look-out for new and yummy recipes to add to my recipe box.
I was given the blog Samayalarai, which is written by the talented Jayasri. Her blog is filled with mouth watering Indian dishes, as well as healthier fare. She specializes in creating recipes that are egg-less. Of course with my sweet-tooth husband watching over my shoulder, he encouraged me to head to her dessert section. Wow, what a beautiful array of sweets she had. Her pictures do a great job of drawing you in and capturing your attention.
What with the gorgeous Fall-like weather we’ve been having lately though, I definitely wanted something to go along with that theme. I found it when I came across her Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies. The stores are starting to overflow with apples right now, and apple picking farms have opened to the public in my area, so these cookies got an automatic YES from me and my husband both.
The only changes I made to the recipe were to switch the wheat germ out for flour since I didn’t have any in my pantry, added an egg to help bind the cookies better, and left out the chocolate chips so the apple flavor could shine through. Oh-My-Goodness my house smelled fantastic while these babies were baking. The addition of fresh green apples made the cookies so soft, and gave them a sweet tartness that put them over the top in taste. While the middles were chewy and soft, the edges were just slightly crispy. Perfect! Remember that old saying of, “An apple a day keeps the Dr. away”? What a delicious way of eating that apple, in cookie form! :)
