Another cookie jar mix posted by request. I have not yet made this recipe. Times are guesstimates for preparing the jar mix. This recipe originates from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook.

I was looking for a cookie to make using ingredients I had in the house. I had steel-cut oats, so I soaked them in a little hot water for a few minutes beforehand so that the soaked oats equaled one cup. I didn't have candy or chocolate chips, but added dried cranberries and walnuts and sunflower seeds in addition to the raisins and coconut. The oats made it more of a dough-y cookie that I will eat for breakfasts. Delicious! Thank you
