Apple Oat Drops

Currently these are one of my son's favorites. As with my carrot drops I scoop out all of the dough and then freeze the uncooked dough. When it is frozen I put all the uncooked cookies in a freezer container. I then take them out and bake as needed. 
They also work great if you cook them and then freeze them just pull them out and let them defrost in the fridge.
Apple Oat Drops
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup rapadura sugar or brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp baking soda
1 egg
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/3 cup all purpose Flour
1/3 cup whole wheat Flour
1 ¼ cup rolled oats 

Optional Additions
½ cup dried fruit
½ cup chopped nuts
½ cup chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl using either a stand or hand mixer. Beat in the egg and applesauce until well blended. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Then slowly mix flour mixture into the butter mixture until well blended. Stir in the oats and any additions you like. Place tablespoon size scoops on a baking stone and bake at 375° for 10-12 min. Cool on a wire rack, serve slightly warm, store in an airtight container for 3-5 days, or freeze for later use.
