1-3/4 cup quick cooking oats or old-fashioned oats, UNcooked (I used quick cooking)
1-1/2 c. unsifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup applesauce
6 ounces chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped nuts (I used 1/2 cup and all was well)
In a small bowl combine oats, flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda. Set aside.
In a large bowl (I used my stand mixer), combine butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat until creamy. Beat in egg.
Gradually blend in flour mixture, alternately with applesauce. Stir in chocolate chips, raisins & nuts.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets (I used UNgreased parchment.)
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 14 minutes.
YIELD: 5 dozen cookies (I ended up with 4-1/2 dozen)
