Caramel Apple Nut Cookies

Lynn Socko


This cookie is perfect for the Fall and it's also great as a breakfast cookie or a mid morning snack. It's not too sweet, you get a bite of apple, a little crunch from that breakfast bar coating, and a sweet and salty finish with that yummy caramel and coarse sea salt.

How to Make Caramel Apple Nut Cookies


  1. These are the Breakfast bars I used, you can use whatever brand or flavor you like.
  2. Before you begin, place breakfast bars in food processor and crush, set aside. Peel and core apple, cut into very small diced pieces, squirt with a little lemon juice, set aside.
  3. In mixing bowl combine butter and sugars and mix. To that add vanilla, baking soda, salt and egg and mix well. Now add flour a little at a time until completely combined. Now add diced apples and chopped walnuts, mix only to combine, do not over mix.
  4. Spoon out by the tablespoon, roll in your hand to form a ball. Coat with crushed breakfast bar crumbs.
  5. Bake 375º for 9-10 min. Allow to cool completely, remove to bake sheet with wire rack.
  6. Drizzle with caramel sauce, sprinkle with coarse sea salt if desired. Remove caramel from can into small bowl, microwave about 1 min or until you can stir and drizzle easily.
