Ingredients

Cookies
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Rockit™ apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger, diced small (optional)
Glaze
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1- 2 tablespoons milk

Method

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients: oats, all-purpose flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients: maple syrup, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until everything is combined but take care not to overmix.
  5. Stir in the apples and crystalized ginger if using.
  6. Let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes while preheating oven to 325°F / 165°C. This will give the oats time to soak up some of liquid and make for moist cookies.
  7. Spoon batter onto the lined baking sheet one heaping tablespoon at a time, then bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges.
  8. While the cookies are baking, make the glaze. Thoroughly combine the powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Then add milk 1/2 tablespoon at a time until consistency is fluid but not runny. You may not need all of the milk.
  9. Take the cookies out of the oven and transfer onto a wire rack to cool.
  10. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies in a zigzagging motion using a spoon.
  11. Let the glaze set, about 5 minutes, then serve.
