Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from The Mom’s Guide to Meal Makeovers

2 cups quick-cooking oats
1  1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 Tablespoons ground flax seed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1  cup packed brown sugar
1/2 stick softened butter
1/4 cup canola oil
2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, very finely chopped
3/4 cup 60% chocolate chips (don’t be tempted to exceed this – they just won’t incorporate into the dough)
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Whisk together oats, flour, flax seed, soda, salt, cinnamon and chocolate chips  in a large bowl. Cream butter & sugar in large mixer bowl, add the oil and corn syrup and beat on medium speed until well blended, about 1 minute.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.  At low speed, gradually beat in the dry ingredients, just until incorporated.  Drop by rounded tablespoon (or use a scoop) onto prepared pan about 2″ apart.  Bake for 9 minutes, until just beginning to turn light brown.   Let cookies cool on pan for a few minutes, then remove to a wire rack.

Peanut Butter version:  Add 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter after the eggs and vanilla, omit cinnamon.
