  3. Add buttermilk, applesauce, and vanilla, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times. Pat dough into a 9-inch circle on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with 2 teaspoons melted butter; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup toasted oats and 1 teaspoon sugar.
