My boyfriend and I wanted Oatmeal Raisin Cookies one night. While I like cranberries, bananas, chocolate, and raisins he wanted cherries, blueberries, and pecans. So, instead of making 2 different batches I just mixed everything in one big bowl! So yummy! Note...my boyfriend likes his cookies a little undercooked so I cooked his for 11 minutes, while I cook mine for 14 minutes.
- 3⁄4 cup salted butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed (I used light and dark brown sugar)
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 3 cups oats (I used 1 cup quick oats & 2 cups old fashioned oats)
- 1⁄2 cup golden raisin
- 1 (5 ounce) bagdried mixed berries (mine contained cherries and blueberries)
- 1⁄2 cup banana chips, crushed (optional) or 1 mashed banana (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped fine
