Maple Iced Oatmeal Cookies are another request from a dear friend who wanted oatmeal cookies, but with some special requirements. An oatmeal cookie without raisins. No chocolate. Just oatmeal. Well “just oatmeal” is pretty darn boring. And if we are being totally honest, I really dislike oatmeal!
I’ve tried overnight oats and instants oats and oats topped with so much sugar and fruit, they have clearly lost any nutritional value and I just don’t like them. About the only way I can stand oats is in cookie form. But even them, the texture and flavor is sometimes bland and dry. So now my cookies had even higher standards to live up to.

There is a reason why traditional  oatmeal is sold or topped with sweet fruit flavors and loaded with brown sugar; because otherwise it tastes like cardboard. In order to hide the ingredients needed to add taste and produce a yummy “plain oatmeal cookie” I used applesauce and maple syrup glaze. Applesauce adds natural sugar and lightens the texture from chewy to fluffy.
I stepped up a plain powdered sugar glaze using maple syrup instead of milk or water. But be careful here and make sure you are using real maple syrup! So much of the stuff sold at the store isn’t the real deal, just maple flavored sugar water. Real maple syrup might even be a little more watery than you would expect. But when you taste that real maple flavor, you’ll be glad you spent the extra dollars.
I also like using my insulated baking sheet for Maple Oatmeal Cookies. Instead of just being a slab of metal, insulated allows air to circulate all around the cookie for more even baking. Once you go insulated, you’ll never go back! If you allow the icing to set fully, Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies can be easily stored in an airtight container for up to a week without sticking to each other.

Ingredients
Cookies:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1/2 cup plain applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
Maple Glaze:
  • 1 13/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons real maple syrup
Serve with:
  • vanilla ice cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk or sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl, set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. When blended, add egg and applesauce. Continue to mix in oats and then slowly add dry ingredients until oatmeal cookie dough is formed.
  4. Drop 1-2 tablespoons of oatmeal cookie dough approximately 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake for 13-14 minutes or until oatmeal cookies are just barely light brown and set. Remove and allow to cool.
  5. Combine powdered sugar and real maple syrup in a small bowl to make maple glaze. Whisk until there are no lumps. If mixture is too thick, add additional water until it can easily be drizzled.
  6. Drizzle each oatmeal cookie with maple glaze and allow to set. Serve with a big glass of milk or vanilla ice cream.
