These fluffy little cookies are made with oats (flakes and flour) and apples.

If you don't have cane sugar, use ordinary sugar instead.

You may be able to find oat flour that has been roasted, so don't hesitate to use it, the cookies will be all the better for it.

For a slightly sweeter taste, you can cook the apple pieces in a little butter and sugar, and even flambé them with calvados, instead of adding them raw.
