Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies

Yummy!!!  I went to make these cookies the other day and couldn't believe they weren't on here!  These are my husband's favorite cookie.  He loves oats in any form, but who can resist them in a cookie along with chocolate chips and nuts?  Of course you can leave the nuts out if you like, but we love them around here.  These come from my mother-in-law, with a couple adaptations, and are definitely a family favorite.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened (1 cube)
1/4 c. applesauce
1 egg
1/4 c. water
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. all-purpose white flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. old-fashioned oats
1 c. chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter, applesauce, egg, water, sugars, and vanilla.  Beat until creamy.  Sift together the flours, soda, and salt and add to the creamy mixture until smooth.  Add oats and combine until blended.  Add in nuts and chocolate chips and blend well.

Scoop onto baking sheet, spaced about 2 inches apart, and bake for 12-15 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.
