Preheat the oven to 325°F / 160°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Then in a separate bowl, prepare the wet ingredients. Whisk together the coconut oil, applesauce, and vanilla and then stir in the maple syrup so that all is mixed well.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, making sure that everything is well incorporated. Then lastly add the apricots and fold into the mixture.
Roll the dough into 15 small balls and then place them back in the bowl. Put them back in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. If you are chilling for longer, cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
Place the dough into 15 rounded scoops on the baking sheet, you may need to push them down a little with a spoon or use your hands to make the shape.
Bake at 325°F for 20-25 minutes until they have become slightly golden in colour. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet or on a wire rack.
