Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, the 2/3 cup oats, the baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the 2/3 cup brown sugar and the butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Beat in egg product and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and applesauce to beaten mixture, beating after each addition just until combined. Stir in fruit bits or raisins.
