Oatmeal cookies are not only an ideal afterschool snack for the kids (ideally with a tall glass of milk, for dunking), they are a more wholesome alternative to other cookies for anyone, particularly when they are sweetened with honey and have olive oil included as the essential fat. That describes this recipe to a T, plus these cookies have grated apple and ground cinnamon (and no raisins, which some people can't abide).


  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 apple (grated)
  • ground cinnamon (to taste)


  1. Mix all the ingredients.
  2. Shape small balls with dough.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Place dough balls on the baking sheet and use a fork to press and slightly flatten.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool.
