- With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line two baking sheets with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
- In a bowl, combine the ground almonds, rye flour, wheat bran, coconut, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
- In another bowl, combine the cream cheese and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time while whisking. Add the oil and vanilla. With the machine running on low speed, or with a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients alternating with the applesauce. Stir in the apples. Spoon out 6 cookies onto each baking sheet, using about ¼ cup of the mixture for each one and making sure to space them out.
- Bake one sheet at a time for 15 minutes or until starting to brown. Let cool.
