Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar

  • cup molasses

  • cup smooth peanut butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup toasted wheat germ

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  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.
