How to make Gluten-Free Vegan Applesauce Cookies

Step 1

To make applesauce from scratch, peel, core, and dice 2 medium apples. Then, boil them in water for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Then, drain them well and blend them in a food processor into a smooth puree. Measure 50 g of sauce and save the leftovers for other recipes.

Step 3

Soak the dried cranberries for 15 minutes in a bowl of water to soften them and prevent burning in the oven. Then, drain them well and gently squeeze out any excess water.

Step 4

Blitz half of the oats into fine flour and add them to a bowl along with the remaining oat flakes. Mix in the baking powder, a pinch of salt, and finely chopped nuts. Then, incorporate the oat milk, maple syrup, applesauce, and cranberries.

Step 5

Work the ingredients into a compact and slightly sticky dough, then refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes to help it set. With greased hands, scoop a small handful of oatmeal dough and roll it into a ball. Then, flatten it down on a lined baking tray, pressing it down with your fingertips into a thin, round cookie.

Step 6

Bake the cookies at 180°C (355°F) static for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden. Once ready, let the cookies cool down completely and crisp up on a wire rack before serving.
