Course Dessert, Snack
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 16


  • ½ cup or 113g butter unsalted and softened
  • cup or 135g light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup or 100g old fashioned rolled oats
  • 100g all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 22g freeze dried apples ground into a powder
  • Chewy sea salt caramels


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat together the butter and brown sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks and beat for a few minutes. Add the salt, soda, cinnamon, vanilla and oats and beat to combine.
  • Fold in the flour and freeze dried apples.
  • Scoop onto a cookie sheet, about 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie.
  • Press a chewy caramel candy in the center (smush it if it’s long) and cup & turn the cookie dough between your hands so that it stands tall and mostly covers the caramel (leave some peeking out the top).
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden at the edges.
