Blend the oatmeal into flour. I do this in my blender or food processor one cup at a time. Once done set aside.
Mix the oil, margarine, applesauce, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl.
In another bowl mix the processed oatmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Add the flour mixture to the oil mixture and mix to combine.
Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts if desired.
Refrigerate the cookie dough for about an hour to make it easier to handle.
To Freeze the Cookie Dough
Roll the dough into cookie sized balls. Place them close together on a cookie sheet. Once the cookie sheet is full freeze the cookie balls until firm.
Once the cookie balls are firm, removed them from the cookie sheet and place them in a gallon size freezer bag. Label with the recipe name and date and baking instructions.
Place the frozen cookie dough balls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Baked at 375 degrees for 12 minutes
