We are not big raisin fans around here so we went for pecans instead and they were very good and of course my 'guinea pigs' at the office loved them. Next time I might add coconut along with the oats and nuts. But great recipe!

Wonderful easy and delicious recipe! I substituted pecans for the raisins and they were a real hit at my office. I will definitely be making these again.

This is a great 'any season' cookie recipe! Try a 'limited edition' cake mix- For instance 'Carmel Apple' cake mix with butterscotch chips. 'Key Lime Pie' or ''Red Velvet' with white chocolate chips. 'Carrot' with raisins and nuts. One of the best is 'Strawberry' with coconut and white chocolate chips-- Beautiful!!

This recipe was great. It is quick, easy and has a basic foundation that allows for variety by using substitutions. The changes I made was to use a devils food cake flavor and white chocolate chips.

Everyone loved these, but I left out the raisins.

This recipe can be made double or triple, to get enough to put some away in the freezer for a backup in the event you get unexpected drop-in company. The raisins are often suggested to be replaced with chopped pecans. To keep the inside of the cookies moist and chewy, work out the basics you want to include. These are so tasty, you can bake up a few batches for the BSA Troop to carry with themselves on a campout. The boys must remember to store them tied up high in a 'bear bag' to prevent a furry critter from getting into their Troop food supplies. Just tie the bags up high, & out on a limb to prevent any bears from getting into the bags.
