- 6 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick-cooking)
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1-1/2 cups raisins
- 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- (*I use Jif brand peanut butter. If unavailable, use another brand but add several tablespoons water to mixture.) In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Blend in sugar, eggs and peanut butter; mix until smooth. Add oats, baking soda, raisins and chocolate chips (dough will be sticky).
- Drop on a greased baking sheet with a No. 20 ice cream scoop or large spoon. Flatten slightly. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.

Reviews forWyoming Whopper Cookies
"I have made these for years. Everyone loves them. One year could not find recipe, boy was the family and friends not happy. Never miss a year now.!!!"
"Made these tonight. First, I would let the butter mixture cool to room temp before adding eggs or chocolate chips. My chips melted into the batter. Secondly, 15 minutes was way too long for my oven. 11 minutes, then 5 minutes cooling on the baking tray. I think I will drizzle frosting. Even though there's a ton of sugar they're lacking something...perhaps some salt."
"These are so good! Love the huge size. Perfect for a little gift to elderly and the young. My grand kids were so excited and also my elderly neighbors."
"These are good but I probably will not make them again; however, for those of you who are gluten sensitive, these contain no flour so they're gluten free if you use gluten-free oats. I'm sure gluten sensitive folks would LOVE these. They're just not my style."
"Great cookie! It has everything you could ask for. My kids call them cowboy cookies. Will definitely be making these again."
"These are the best cookies EVER! You can substitute different dried fruit - we really like dried cherries -- or use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet depending on your taste. I've also used creamy peanut butter - no matter what the substitute, they are great! I'd give more stars if they were available!"
