I am going to jump in and give you some suggestions. I would replace the white flour with soft whole wheat white pastry flour. (King Authurs sales a white wheat flour. No, it does not taste totally like white flour but it does have a lighter taste than hard whole wheat flour.)
The other thing I would do is use chia seed gel for the oil replacement instead of applesauce. You will get a lot more fiber that way. You can google on how to make chia seed gel.
