Maple Apple Oatmeal Cookies

2 1/2 cup Flour
1 cup Quick oats
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground cloves
2 tsp Grated lemon zest
1 cup Dark brown sugar
3/4 cup Butter (softened)
1 large Egg
1/2 cup Unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup Maple syrup
1 cup Apples (Peeled and finely chopped)
1 cup Currants

Topping:
1/2 cup Toasted quick oats
2 tbsp Brown sugar

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In medium mixing bowl, mix together flour, oats, salt, soda, cinnamon, cloves and the lemon zest. Mix well with a whisk, set aside. Cream together butter and sugar in mixing bowl with mixer. Add in the egg, maple syrup and applesauce. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Add in flour mixture, apples and currants. Blend at low speed until just combined, avoid overmixing. Dough will be quite soft. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, make sure they are 2 inches apart. For topping, mix oats and brown sugar, and sprinkle on cookies. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until bottoms are a golden brown.
