Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line the baking sheets with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter.
Mix in the applesauce, egg, and vanilla extract.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
In a small bowl, add the raisins and a spoonful of the flour mixture. This will keep the raisins from clumping together in the cookies so they are evenly disbursed.
Gradually add the flour mixture to wet ingredients, making sure to mix well.
Fold in the oats, raisins and pecans.
Divide the batter using a medium cookie dough scoop, roll into a ball and place on the prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until lightly golden and slightly set. Bake 1-2 minutes longer for a crispy cookie.
Remove from the oven and cool on wire rack.
Store in airtight container at room temperature.
