Chewy Maple Chocolate Chip + Apple Cookies


chewy maple chocolate chip+apple cookies
These Chewy Maple Chocolate Chip + Apple cookies are perfect for fall, Halloween or just a cozy night at home! I love a classic chocolate chip cookie, but these chewy and perfectly spiced cookies are such a perfect autumn twist that you have to try them out! They are soft in the center, slightly crispy around the edges and perfectly sweet thanks to all natural maple syrup and coconut sugar. Looking for more fall inspired desserts?
