Original recipe yields 2 dozen (large)



  1. Cream the butter, sugar, molasses, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Blend in the eggs and vanilla. Mix the flour, wheat germ, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture, until evenly blended.
  2. Stir in the oats, raisins, choc chips, and nuts. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Shape dough into large balls using 1/4 cup of dough per cookie. Place on greased cookie sheets, leaving 3 inches between them. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. When done, the tops will still be soft to the touch. Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool.

these were so hearty and good. I cut the recipe in half and made smaller cookies i got about 28 and cooked them for 15 minutes. These are perfect for hiking or just snacking. The second time i made them i also did half applesauce and half butter and used all whole wheat flour. They still came out amazing.



OH...YUM!!! These are BY FAR the best "health" / "trail mix" cookie I have tasted. I have been searching a long time for a recipe that will make me never want to buy bars again, and this one has blown me away. I couldn't stop eating the dough, haha! I used all spelt flour (LOVE the taste of it and it's so healthy!) and only half the amount of molasses because I ran out. The flavors are so complimentary to eachother. I tried lots of add-ins like chocolate chips, craisins, walnuts, pecans, golden raisins... YUM! Also, to 1/4 of the batch I added 1 small banana with walnuts. MMMM it tastes like REALLY GOOD flavorful banana bread!!! Thanks so much for a recipe that will be a forever favorite :)



I cut the sugar to 1 cup, used crunchy PB, 1/2 cup pure mini chocolate chips, 1/2 cup walnut, 1/4 cup sunflower, 1/4 cup sesame seeds & 1/4 cup coconut. Next time I would like to try 1/2 butter 1/2 apple sauce ;)
