This soft and easy gluten free apple spice cookies recipe is made with brown sugar and cinnamon. They make it simple to have a chewy, delicious cookie loaded with apples and flavor.



1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1 large Egg
1 1/2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp. Xanthum Gum
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 large Apple, peeled, cored and chopped (approx. 1 cup)


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of your stand mixer place the brown sugar, butter and egg. Beat until blended. Add the flour, xanthum gum, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Beat until blended together.

Add the apple chunks and blend until just combined.

Using a cookie scoop or heaping tablespoon place 12 cookies on each cookie sheet.
