1½ cups (190 grams) whole spelt flour or whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a medium bowl and set aside.In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the coconut oil in the microwave
Add the applesauce, sugar, eggs, and vanilla and stir
Let sit for 5 minutes to give the sugar a chance to dissolve, and then stir one more time.Add the dry mix to the wet mix and stir just until combined
Stir in the oats and apples, again stirring just until combined.Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until it's firm enough to roll into balls.Form the dough into balls, about three tablespoons in size (I used this large cookie scoop) and place about 1½" apart on the lined baking sheet.Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until the middle appears to be set
These go from just done to overbaked very quickly
If you refrigerated the dough for longer than 30 minutes, you might need to add a minute or two to the baking time.Let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days and place in the refrigerator after that for another 4 days.
