This recipes uses a food processor to make the batter, which speeds things up. The nuts and oats are toasted for more flavour.
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 USA and 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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
