Absolutely fabulous! I am not a real sweet tooth person, but these appealed to me as the ingredients looked interesting and I LOVE oats! I made ONE change - I felt that with the already sweetened craisins (cranberries) and raisins, that the sugar quantities were a wee bit too much for us, so I used a total of 1 1/2 cups sugar and used ALL light brown sugar - with GREAT success! The addition of the cardamom seeds was AMAZING and took these oatmeal cookies to a HIGHER taste level IMHO! I used toasted walnuts for a more mellow flavour and my yield for these cookies was 36 large ones! I made this for the Photo Recipe Swap, but these will NOW be a firm favourite in our house - so tasty and I might even reduce the sugar a bit more next time to about 1 1/4 cups total! Thanks Vicky!

Good Recipe. Worth making again. I made with half butter/half margarine, half rolled oats/half steel cut, reduced the white sugar, added a splash of vanilla liqueur, and didn't use the walnuts, oh and I used ground cardamom and baking powder, not soda. The cookies were a definite hit. The batch certainly didn't last long.

I already have an oatmeal cookie of my own posted but since I'm an oatmeal cookie addict I try every recipe I can get my hands on and this one has cardamom which I love! Well, all I can say is that my kids asked after these were all gone when I'm going to make more of those yummy cookies and so here I am baking them for a second day in a row. The changes I made were to leave out the fruit and instead I used chocolate chips. I also left out the nuts and put in a cup of sweetened coconut; it was delicious. O.K. maybe I changed it more than you would have liked but it was great anyway. Thank you!
