Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I've kinda turned this into a baking and cooking blog, but I do intend to write more about life stuff but for now here is a recipe I created. Of course they are no Martha Stewart or Mrs. Fields, but they are pretty yummy for a lighter dessert. =)
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Applesauce
1 Cup White Sugar (Substitute can be made here, I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda)
1 Cup Splenda Brown Sugar Mix
2 Eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 Cups white flour (brown flour can be substituted, but white tastes better) =)
2 Cups oat (oatmeal, ground finely can be done slowly in blender)
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bag white chocolate chips (or whatever variety you prefer)
Cream together the first four ingredients
Then mix in eggs and vanilla
In a separate bowl mix together all dry ingredients then slowly add them to wet ingredients
Fold in chocolate chips (At this point I divided dough into two portions, and added white chocolate chips into only one portion)
Refrigerate for at least an hour covered
Roll into 1 tablespoonfull balls. Flatten and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degree preheated oven for 7-10 minutes . Cool on rack
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
