This is my variation on the Quaker Oatmeal Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe. Sometimes you just want something a little different! These are great for breakfast or a snack!

Yummy! I didn't have enough pecans and I substituted white chocolate chips instead. A nice balance between sweet and tart and a great chewy texture. Thanks for posting.
