  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the oats, wheat germ, raisins and walnuts. Drop cookies by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Wet hands and flatten cookies slightly. Cookies should be about 3/4 inch thick, and 2 1/2 inches wide before baking.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Absolutely the best oatmeal raisin cookies I have every had. Have tried many recipes but none as good as this one. Everyone who has tried these had loved them too.

These are the best oatmeal type cookie I have ever baked. I grind the oatmeal in the blender and add ground flaxseed. I reduce the sugar by 45g and use wholemeal flour. Also, I use raw sugar ...

I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, made them a bit smaller ("normal" sized), and reduced the baking time accordingly. I love the idea of using the wheat germ but although these were tasty, I found ...

I make these for my crew at the firehouse and they are a huge hit! Especially when we get busy...we can grab one of these cookies & go. They really tide us over until we get the chance to eat ...

I had to add regular raisins as I had no golden, but will try them another time. I would have liked to added walnuts but I wanted my 19 mth old can't have nuts yet. Added a half teaspoon of cinn...

I followed this recipe exactly as written, but I was pretty disappointed in the outcome. The taste itself is very good, but tasted like other easier oatmeal cookies recipes I have made. I think ...

Wow! I had a bad experience with this recipe. The dough looked okay, maybe a bit too sugary, but it sure didn't look like it would melt flat onto the cookie sheet! (I'm glad I greased the shee...
