Oatmeal apple pie cookies

When my friend Maria asked me to make some low-carb treats for her I was thinking what I could do. So I made low-carb brownies with coconut flour and dates as sweetener. No added sugar at all. But still they will never be my favourite. I just keep thinking brownies should be very very bad, sugary and chocolaty. So I also tried something else; oatmeal apple pie cookies. They are an adaptation from the oatmeal cookies I’ve posted before. They have only 1/3 of the sugar that’s in the normal ones!
