Chill Time: 45 minutes
2 cups oat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon allspice
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup baker’s sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup pear, grated
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 small pear, cored and sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F°. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the eggs to the large bowl and mix well. Toss in the applesauce and grated pear to the large bowl and mix well. Then, add the flour mixture and mix well. Finally, fold in the chopped nuts.
