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!
