Loaded Oatmeal Cookies- another Christmas Cookie Keeper!

In addition to the molasses cookies I baked yesterday, I also baked up some loaded oatmeal cookies.  These cookies are based upon the recipe found under the Quaker Oatmeal cap- it’s different than the recipe featured on the Quaker website.  I know the recipe has been a feature on the cap for years- at least since I was 12 or 13.  To load ’em up, I added raisins, a bag of chocolate chips, and some pecans- although any nut would do (walnut, hazelnut, etc).  These are chewy and full of flavor- and oatmeal too- so they gotta be at least a teeny bit healthy, right?
