Can the white chocolate be left out of this recipe?

Yes! By all means, if you’re not a fan, leave the white chocolate chips out.

OR, if you’re more of a milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate lover, why not substitute that instead?

Can the pecans be swapped or left out?

Either, or both.

Feel free to leave them out altogether, or swap them with another nut that is your favorite, or that you already have on hand.

Walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, or even pistachios would make a nice substitution.

Can these apple oatmeal cookies be frozen after baking?

Yes!

Store them in an air-tight freezer container or wrapped well in a freezer-bag for up to 3 months.

How to make Apple Oatmeal Cookies:

  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, and milk. Combine.
