Apple and cinnamon, is there a better combination? – Especially in the Autumn season.
These tempting oaty apple pie biscuits are easy to make and completely vegan friendly.
To make this recipe, you will need:
This recipe Makes 12.
- 160 g Oats
- 70 g Plain Flour
- 0.5 tsp Baking Powder
- 0.25 tsp Salt
- 0.5 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 45 g Light Brown Sugar
- 120 mL Olive Oil
- 75 mL Golden Syrup *
- 1 Flax Egg **
- 90 g Chopped Apple (75 g for the mix and 15 g to top) ***
* You can use any syrup you like. Maple Syrup would work very well with the rest of the recipes Autumn flavours. I only had Golden Syrup in my cupboards, so this is what I used.
** To make a Flax Egg, mix 1 tbsp of Flaxseed with 3 tbsp of water.
*** Ensure that you cut the apple into very small pieces. I used two small gala apples in this recipe, but you can use any type of apple you like. Green apples will provide a crunchier texture with a sour taste, and red apples will have a softer texture with a sweet taste.
Prepare the Flax egg and leave it to one side for 5 minutes.
Mix the oats, plain flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt and brown sugar in a bowl.
Add the oil, syrup and Flax egg and mix well.
Fold in 75 g of the chopped apple.
Leave the 15 g of remaining apple to one side.
Split the mix into 12 balls, and place them evenly spaced onto two lined baking trays.
Top the biscuits with the leftover 15 g of chopped apple.
Place the baking trays in the fridge for approximately an hour. Doing so will ensure that the biscuits don’t over-expand and lose their shape.
After chilling, preheat the oven for 10 minutes and bake the biscuits for approximately 15 minutes, until the edges turn golden brown.
Leave to cool on the tray for 15 minutes before transferring over to a cooling rack.
