Walnut and Apple Cookie Cake Bites

This is part soft cookie, part cake - couldn't decide which side of the fence it fell so have called it a Cookie Cake!
They have a crunchy top reminiscent of a cookie when fresh from the oven but the inside is densely cake-like.
These can be baked directly on a baking sheet, moulded into round cookie disc shapes, or baked in mini silicone cake cases.

There is no added sweetener aside from the natural sweetness from the homemade applesauce but, as always, there is the option to add a little extra sweetness to personal taste.

They are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts and for a rushed grab-and-go by the kids on the way to school. They do contain flaxmeal which can be a source of gut irritant for some, though the ground meal version is certainly easier on digestion than the seeds. Technically flax is a seed and not a grain and in moderation I have found I tolerate it well.
