1 cup of melted butter
2 cups of quick oats
2 cups of apples - peeled and sliced and chopped in to small chunks

1. mix the flour, sugar (both brown and white), cinnamon, baking powder, salt and oats together
2. then add in the eggs and butter
3. add the chunks of the apples and mix well
4. place a spoon full of the cookie dough onto a baking dish
