Chewy soft oatmeal cookies filled with fresh apples and butterscotch chips! Drizzled with a simple icing, these pretty little cookies are so full of fall flavor!
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (or Greek yogurt or applesauce or butter)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1½ cups chopped tart apples (1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • For the Icing:
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk or cream
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Cream together the butter, coconut oil, and sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until just combined. Stir in the oats. Then stir in the apples and butterscotch chips.
  4. Spoon the cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet (or one lined with a silpat or parchment paper) by the rounded tablespoon about 2 inches apart. Bake for 11 mins. The cookies might look not quite done but it's okay!
  5. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. To make the icing mix together the powdered sugar and milk or cream until smooth. Use a fork to drizzle the icing over the cooled cookies.
