    Serves: 24 

    • 235g chopped walnuts
    • 80g porridge oats
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 220g dark brown soft sugar
    • 225g unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 210g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

    • 300g raisins
    • 180g unsweetened nut and grain granola or muesli

    Prep:35min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:47min 

    1. Place one oven rack in the upper third of the oven and one rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Coat two large baking trays with cooking spray, or line with parchment.
    2. On a microwave-safe plate, spread the walnuts and oats. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and check for toasting. Microwave for an additional 2 minutes on high and stir. The nuts and oatmeal should now be nicely toasted. Place in a large bowl.
    3. In the food processor bowl fitted with a steel blade, combine the sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. In a small bowl, combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt. Spoon the flour mixture on top of the butter mixture. Pulse 3 or 4 times to mix.
    4. Scrape the mixture into the walnut-oat mixture. Add the raisins and granola or muesli. Fold the ingredients together.
    5. Drop the cookies onto the sheets using 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until the tops are just beginning to brown but the middles still look a little soft. Cool on the baking trays for a few minutes and then transfer to a rack.


    You can also toast the oats and nuts in a dry frying pan over medium heat if you prefer not to use the microwave. Stir often and watch carefully so they don't burn.

    Very good cookies! I used Megan's Granola from this site, 1/2 cup of pecans instead of walnuts, part WW pastry flour, part shortening, and only 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1 cup raisins. Crisp on the outside and very chewy and delicious.  -  17 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Followed directions and overall it worked out fine. Processing took a bit longer than instructed even though I let the butter sit out all day. I baked on parchment paper and at 12 minutes the cookies were overdone. I backed it down to 11 minutes and they were much prettier. I don't think microwaving the nuts and oats actually "toasted" them. DH said they were great and would like it if I made them again.  -  30 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice cookie..........I used a hand mixer instead of a foodprocessor and still worked out fine. Couldn't believe I could add all those dry ingredients. Key to chewy cookie is not overbaking.......follow instructions and will be fine.  -  11 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
