Anyone will love these cookies.  I call them kids cookies because children seem to really like them.  Perhaps it is because of the peanut butter with the jelly centers!  But what big kid doesn't like pb&j, too?

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup quick cooking oats
sugar, for topping
3 tbsp jelly (your flavor choice) for centers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl combine the flours, sugars, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, oil, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla, and egg; mix together well.  Stir in the oats.

Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Put some sugar in a small bowl and dip fork into the sugar.  Using the fork, flatten cookies making a crisscross patterns on the surface of the cookies.  Place 1/8 teaspoon of the jelly in the center of each cookie.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until a light golden brown color.  Immediately remove from the cookie sheets to wire racks to cool.

Yield: 60 cookies
