Quarantine cooking

A Large container of oats the other

day caught my eye  in  the pantry and decided it was time to put them to good use!My sister, whom I  live with,  was craving walnuts with chocolate. No brainer-that was easy to think about putting into the cookies.  I had some flax seed meal so….why not. Oatmeal cookies with walnuts, chocolate chips, flax and raisins! It’s fortunately and two seem to do the trick. Start with 3 cups oats, one and a half cups flour, 1tablespoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup flaxseed meal, two eggs, 2 sticks softened butter,  1 cup brown sugar+1/2 cup white sugar, liberal teaspoon vanilla.

In large bowl of electric mixer  add Softened butter and both sugars. Mixer at medium speed cream the ingredients. Add  eggs and vanilla  and mix 30 seconds.  Add next: Flour, flax seed meal, baking soda and salt and mix at medium speed until batter is smooth.   Stir in oats, walnuts, raisins, and chocolate chips.  Refrigerate the batter an hour or so. It can  be refrigerated overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Drop batter by tablespoon full on cookie sheet. Bake  for about 12 to 15 minutes.  Enjoy!
Do you enjoy your treats to last? Pack two cookies in plastic wrap to have portioned.   If you then  freeze  you will have a quick snack to grab for a few nights.
