Optional Icing Drizzle:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix together the flax egg and set aside to gel while you prep the rest of the batter.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, brown sugar, spices, and whisk together.
  4. Add the flax egg, chopped apple, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix together to combine (if needed you can add 1 tablespoon of water if the dough is dry).
  5. On a baking sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper, drop 10 2-tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough, eveny spaced.
  6. Take 1 balled up vegan caramel piece per cookie and press it into the cookie blobs. Cover the hole with the cookie dough so the caramel is hidden.
  7. Bake the cookies for 14-15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  8. Remove and let cool on a wire rack while you prepare the optional icing drizzle.
  9. To make the drizzle: Combine the powdered sweetener with a few teaspoons of water at a time. You want a thick icing, but enough liquid that you’ll be able to take a spoon and give each cookie a rough drizzle.
